If this is true they deserve to go to jail.

I know there was talk about hazing being a big problem at SUNY Binghamton, but it's possible this campus had a rep for it too.

Maybe that's the campus I'm thinking of.

Aren't all New York public colleges called SUNY or CUNY though? I really hope this isn't a derp moment where someone reminds me of a major example where this is not the case.

Do all state colleges in NY even have Greek life, let alone this reputation?

IMO, this goes back to the history of GLOs in NY state. Sometime in the (40s or 50s), the NY state legislature passed a requirement in the public NY colleges that did not allow any GLO to have anti-discrimination policies. At the time, the majority of GLOs have clauses that were discriminatory against non-whites and, in some cases, religious affiliation. Many chapters had to sever their ties with their national organizations. Chapters founded at the state schools after the enactment were all local, never having a tie with national groups.

I will not be so bold to say that hazing does not exist in other state schools, but without national orgs to keep an eye out, IMO hazing got a strong toe-hold in the SUNY schools that has not been let go.

National groups began to reenter the SUNY system in the 80s. However, many of those groups later severed their ties again or were shuttered by their nationals for hazing.
