Description: Hear from students, family members and USC staff about the USC Panhellenic Sorority Community. Learn more about how to join, what kind of time commitments are needed, community initiatives and more. A moderated panel hosted by the InterSorority Parents Council will provide key insights and information for caregivers of students interested in joining the Panhellenic community. Stick around for a Q&A session and get a high-level look at the USC Trojan Fraternity and Sorority Community.

 

Date/Time: Friday, October 9 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Session Title: Hazing is Preventable: A Family Conversation

Description: Join us for a real, honest conversation about hazing with families who have been affected by it. Learn how to recognize hazing, about its harmful and serious effects hazing and what students can do to prevent hazing and hazing-related deaths. While the speakers will primarily talk about fraternity deaths, hazing can be found in many sectors of collegiate life including student organizations, the marching band, athletics and recreation sports. Having the conversation now will help students make informed choices about stepping up to interrupt and end hazing.
