Absolutely not. Everyone is actually very careful so as to avoid hazing.

Good company you have! Why would they hurt people who only wanted to be a member? Pointless!

Mine doesn't. I just don't understand the importance of hazing when joining a fraternity. I'm sorry to those who do haze, but why?

By my personal definition of hazing, my chapter did not. But by some definitions out there, maybe.

Looking back, it was what it was and I have no complaints. I was just happy to get it over and done with.

I know this is old, but I wanted to add since I've been reading. My chapter went to EXTREMES to ensure we were not uncomfortable. They told us straight away that if we felt uncomfortable or were concerned about anything from anyone to bring it up. I think it is almost ridiculous how crazy we took it. But at the same time, I know of other chapters that have hazed or done some things that might be questionable. My chapter wanted to make sure our new members felt loved and cared for, and I for one greatly appreciate knowing that I was completely safe with my sisters.

Unless being showered with gifts and treats is considered hazing, I can state that I was never hazed.

I'd say that the closest that I got to being hazed is that the Big Brother reveal at my chapter. It wasn't on campus and the pledges were simply told to show up at the chapter office (about 4:30 PM, I think( and that they wouldn't be back for a couple of hours. The Pledge Master and a few other brothers then took us walking through the city park that adjoined campus and we didn't know where we were going. We eventually ended up at a pizza place where the rest of the chapter was present and the Big Brother reveal took place there.

My Chapter knows they better not or I will rain hell and fire down on them! So basically NO!

That is what I founded the local on, NO HAZING!

I'm always a little jealous when I hear of fraternity chapters that do a Big Brother/Little Brother reveal. Ours was uneventful. I still ended up with a great Big Brother, but there was no fun reveal for it.
