This week-long event was created by HazingPrevention.Org, a national nonprofit organization that empowers individuals to prevent hazing and to not be a bystander. On Spring Hill College’s campus, all of the women’s Greek organizations came together to support the “These Hands Don’t Haze”Campaign, started by the National Panhellenic Council.

Spring Hill College Participates in National Hazing Prevention Week

To support NHPW, Spring Hill Panhellenic hosted a table in the back of the campus cafeteria. They had information and answers to any questions in regards to our campus hazing policies and procedures. In addition, there was an interactive activity where campus club members could sign their name and group on a paper hand to show their support of These Hands Don’t Haze. “We had people from whatever organizations were willingcome pledge to stand against hazing,” stated Caroline Cusick, president-elect of Panhellenic. “It wasn’t just Greek life that was involved in this—if you’re a part of athletics, if you’re apart of just a club on campus, then hazing can happen in any of them. We want everyone to be able to stand up against it.”
