FAMU Launches Anti-Hazing Website
8 months ago
School looks to rebuild image, reputation.
In the wake of the hazing scandal that left drum major Robert Champion dead its storied Marching 100 band disbanded, Florida A&M University has started their long road to image rebuilding.
The first step is the new website Stophazingatfamu.com. The site opens with a video message about hazing while the homepage features somber-faced students, faculty and staff holding up signs that spellout "H-A-Z-I-N-G." Clicking on each letter will lead you to a page targeting fraternities, sports teams and organizations known for hazing and how it can be stopped.
Beginning in spring 2013, students will be required to sign an anti-hazing pledge before they can register for classes.
