University of Colorado educates greek life on hazing
Fall recruitment for the University of Colorado's greek system is in full swing.
Hazing is a main concern for the University when it comes to CU’s Greek Life, and has implemented a hazing education program.
This program started in 2004 following the death of Gordie Bailey. Bailey was a freshman member of the Chi Psi Fraternity and was forced by his older brothers to drink large amounts of alcohol, eventually causing his death.
CU provides several resources like an online tutorial, Greek 1-0-1, lectures on safety, and a mandatory screening of the “Gordie Bailey Movie”.
CU's sororities had over 1,000 girls sign up and join the 7 different houses during their early September recruitment. Fraternities are currently in the recruitment process, and just like the sororities had a record number of freshmen sign up.
This is the first year Chi Psi will be able to participate in fall recruitment after being kicked off campus because of Bailey's death.
