Court documents said her eye swelled shut after being hit. 1.5 million high school students are hazed each year; 47% of students came to college already having experienced hazing.
55% of college students involved in clubs, teams and organizations experience hazing.

2 in 5 students say they are aware of hazing taking place on their campus. More than 1 in 5 report that they witnessed hazing personally.
In 95% of cases where students identified their experience as hazing, they did not report the events to campus officials.

As of February 12, 2010, the number of recorded hazing/pledging/rushing-related deaths in fraternities and sororities stands at

96 – 90 males and 6 females.
