The following quiz is to test your knowledge on hazing.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Students are more likely to be hazed if they knew an adult who was hazed

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Students are more likely to be hazed if they knew an adult who was hazed because they may perceive hazing as a normal or acceptable behavior. When students see adults engaging in hazing, they might believe that it is a rite of passage or a way to gain acceptance within a group. This can increase the likelihood of them participating in or tolerating hazing activities themselves. Additionally, knowing an adult who was hazed might also expose students to a culture or social network where hazing is prevalent, further increasing their chances of being hazed.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Earliest known accounts of hazing were discovered in fraternities in North America.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the earliest known accounts of hazing were not discovered in fraternities in North America. Hazing practices have been documented in various cultures throughout history, and they can be traced back to ancient Greece and Rome. These practices were not limited to fraternities or North America but were prevalent in different societies worldwide. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    In hazing, there is no such thing as an innocent bystander.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In hazing, everyone involved is considered responsible and accountable for their actions, regardless of whether they directly participate or passively observe. This means that even if someone is just standing by and not actively participating, they are still considered complicit in the hazing and share responsibility for the consequences. Therefore, there is no such thing as an innocent bystander in hazing.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    When considering perpetrators, bystanders, and victims of hazing, its is ______________, as a group, who have the most potential to curb the aggression in hazing.

    • A.

      Perpetrator

    • B.

      Bystander

    • C.

      Victim

    Correct Answer
    B. Bystander
    Explanation
    Bystanders have the most potential to curb the aggression in hazing because they are the individuals who witness the hazing acts but are not directly involved as perpetrators or victims. Bystanders have the power to intervene, speak up against hazing, or seek help from authorities, which can help stop the cycle of aggression. By taking a stand against hazing and refusing to participate or condone it, bystanders can play a crucial role in preventing and reducing instances of hazing.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When the team makes the freshman carry the water bottles to and from practice, it is considered hazing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hazing refers to any activity or behavior that is used to humiliate, degrade, or harm individuals as a part of initiation rituals or group bonding activities. In this scenario, making the freshman carry the water bottles to and from practice can be seen as a form of hazing because it singles them out for a menial task and potentially subjects them to ridicule or humiliation. This behavior can have negative psychological and emotional effects on the freshman and goes against the principles of respect and equality within a team.

    Rate this question:

  • 6.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In Pennsylvania, even if a prospective/new member willingly participates in an activity and signs a waiver of liability, it is still considered hazing. This means that the organization or individuals involved can still be held accountable for any harm caused during the activity, regardless of the participant's consent or signed waiver.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    It is difficult to instill a sense of membership within a group without hazing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is not true. It is possible to instill a sense of membership within a group without hazing. Hazing is a harmful and dangerous practice that can lead to physical and psychological harm. There are various other ways to create a sense of belonging and membership within a group, such as team-building exercises, group activities, open communication, and fostering a supportive and inclusive environment. Hazing should never be considered as a necessary means to create a sense of membership.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    It cannot be considered hazing if an organization's leaders are not informed about, or involved in, a hazing activity that a small group of members organize.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the involvement or knowledge of an organization's leaders does not determine whether an activity is considered hazing or not. Hazing refers to any activity that humiliates, degrades, or endangers individuals as a condition for joining or remaining in a group, regardless of whether leaders are aware or involved. The responsibility lies with the entire organization to prevent and address hazing, not just the leaders.

      My organization advisor and/or coach

      Any and/or all of the above

    Explanation
    If someone is concerned about being hazed or witnessing hazing within an organization, it is important to take action and seek help. Contacting the organization advisor and/or coach is a good first step as they may have the authority to address the issue internally. However, if the concern persists or if the advisor/coach is unresponsive, it is recommended to reach out to the Dean of Students Department. They have the authority to investigate and take disciplinary action if necessary. Additionally, involving the University Police Department can ensure the safety of individuals involved and provide further assistance in handling the situation. Therefore, contacting any and/or all of the above options is a suitable course of action.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Hazing is not something that all freshmen have to go through. Hazing refers to the practice of subjecting newcomers to abusive or humiliating rituals as a way to initiate them into a group. While hazing may occur in some organizations or groups, it is not a universal experience for all freshmen. The statement suggests a false belief that hazing is a necessary part of the freshman experience, which is incorrect.

A ropes course involves team-building activities and challenges that require cooperation and trust, fostering a sense of unity. Watching a movie together allows individuals to relax and bond over shared interests. Community service projects encourage teamwork, compassion, and a common goal, leading to stronger connections among participants. Therefore, all of these activities can be effective alternatives to hazing, promoting bonding in a positive and inclusive manner.
