September 8, 2014

California State University at Northridge has shut down the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity after completing a report on a student's death during the summer, The Los Angeles Times reported. The student was on a long forced hike without adequate water, the report found. "Hazing is stupid, senseless, it is dangerous and it is against the law in California," said Dianne F. Harrison, said. "It is a vestige of toxic thinking in which somehow it is O.K. to degrade, to humiliate and potentially harm others.... It will not be tolerated."
