Hazing rates 'incredibly high' at universities – StudyAFP.
The Red Zone report by activist group End Rape on Campus focused on orientation week before the start of classes and covered 12 Australian universities. The report's authors recommended the criminalisation of hazing rituals "requiring an individual to undergo any act which is likely to cause bodily danger or physical punishment to any student or other person".

"It's a self-perpetuating culture in that the same people that experience hazing or harassment will go on to perpetrate that when they are older students," Hush said.
