Hazing in colleges has been going on for a long. A very long time. Sororities and fraternities have long been known for their inappropriate conduct. When you think about it, you have college kids being given some false sense of power and entitlement over younger peers. And when you mix in alcohol and drugs, it is no wonder there are some pretty crazy stories. The movie Animal House showcased it best when a young Kevin Bacon was on all fours and getting his ass paddled while he said, “Thank you sir, may I have another!” Certainly, this was comical to watch, but students who are subjected to the kinds of embarrassment and pain while “rushing” for their favorite Greek club, aren’t laughing too hard as they go through it. And sometimes, it can even be deadly.
It may be assumed that overzealous college boys are responsible for this out-of-control kind of behavior. With as many sexual assaults that occur on college campuses, it almost seems a certainty that they are responsible for much of the madness. However, sororities are just as extreme, and in some cases, more so. There seems to be no line in the sand that can’t be crossed by these sororities as they torture and torment their pledges. The college kids run houses under their charters and seemingly have free reign to rule, party and do as they please. College kids enforcing rules and policies over their peers is never a good thing. With limited adult supervision, things can get out of control real fast. These are 10 Of The Craziest Sorority Hazing Stories.
10 Dartmouth - Chug A 64-Ounce Bottle Of Spiked Punch
Dartmouth is well known as a prestigious college. But in 2009, anything but prestige would be used to describe this hazing event that occurred at the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house. Graduate Ravital Segal revealed in 2012 her terrifying experiences. It began with blindfolding and being taken into the back seat of a car. She and other pledges were forced to chug an alcoholic punch from a 64-ounce water bottle. In between the chugging, they had to do shots of vodka. Segal, completely wasted, was told to get out of the car. Next thing she remembers was she woke up in the intensive care unit at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
9 Young Harris College – Swimming Through Poop-Filled Mud
Young Harris College is located in the state of Georgia. This school in the deep south came under intense scrutiny when Gamma Psi pledge, Jo Hannah Burch, spilled the beans on some troubling hazing details. Burch claims that the pledges were taken into the woods and forced to crawl through the mud and into a freezing cold creek while they were screamed at and spit on. If that wasn’t enough, the girls were also forced to stand in pools of water that sorority members had defecated in.
8 The Deep South – Oral Exams
Numerous colleges in the deep south have a ritual from which many anonymous complaints have come about. Why anonymous? Well, girls are threatened with retaliation and open themselves up for attacks if they squeal about these abusive hazing techniques. Well, a bunch of complaints have come in concerning an oral test given to pledges. The complaints, from varied college campuses, all state that pledges must perform oral sex on the sorority sisters.
7 Rutgers University – “Thank You, Ma’am, May I Have Another!”
In a strange gender twist, the famed Animal House scene came to life at Sigma Gamma Rho sorority when a female student was pledging and was beaten so badly by paddles, she had to be taken to the hospital. The 2010 incident was shocking. And naturally, the school and sorority’s national organization suspended Sigma Gamma Rho. But the response of the girls in that sorority may have been even more shocking.
6 Rutgers – No Lesbians Allowed
Rutgers makes a second appearance on the list. Go New Jersey! For these incidents, sorority girls were forced to strip down naked. The pledges had to sit down on paper towels. Then they had to watch a lesbian adult film movie. After watching movie, if the paper towels got too wet, they would later be bounced from the sorority.
5 University of Tennessee, Chattanooga - The MMA Sorority
At the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, the pledges are apparently faced with the kind of punishment you would expect from an octagon, not from a sorority house. In 2009, Jasmine Johnson was rushing Delta Sigma Theta. During the course of her hazing, Johnson was subjected to getting punched in the face while vinegar was squirted into her eyes and ice cold water was poured over her head.
4 University of California, Berkeley - Garbage Girls
UC Berkeley is known for many different things: the college of progressives and hippy-like, relaxed, pot-smoking behavior. But Britteny Starling was none too relaxed when she was rushing Zeta Phi Beta sorority. As a pledge, Starling claims she was forced to clean up juice from the floor using her back and act as a trash can for the other sorority girls. They basically dumped all their garbage on top of her, amusing themselves in the process. Aside from playing the “human garbage can” game, Starling stated that pledges were forced to stay awake all night without being allowed to use the bathroom.
3 Binghamton University – Ice Cold
2 California State University, Los Angeles – Taken By Sea
This one is a terrible story. In 2002, the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority had their pledges pushed to the limit on the beaches of California. Pledges were forced to do hours of exercising on the beach, pushing them to near exhaustion. After they were sufficiently exhausted, the pledges had to walk backwards into the ocean. The girls are then pummeled by the waves and struggle to stand to the delight of the watching sorority sisters.
