Hazing is prohibited under Pennsylvania State law. Any person who causes or participates in hazing commits a misdemeanor of the third degree (P.L. 1595, No. 175 subsection 3). Hazing is also a violation of college policy and infractions may result in a direct referral to the Judicial Board and/or a suspension from the College. “Hazing” is defined as any action or situation which recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student or which willfully destroys or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation or admission into or affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in, any organization operating under the sanction of or recognized as an organization by Juniata College (Antihazing Law).
