On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morning, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

The issue of Hazing and Bullying has created a new level
of concern for parents sending their children to college.
The elevated incidence of injuries and harm (physical,
emotional, psychological) and deaths of those falling victim
to the violence that is the result of inflicting suffering and
pain upon another person.

Bullying has many forms from verbal harassment, sexual
assaults (and favors), cyber threats and physical attacks.  
All used to create an environment of fear, trepidation and
compliance to the wishes of the tormentor(s). Hazing is
the execution of psychological manipulation, physical
violence and emotional persuasion to create conditions
of servitude (serving those who execute hazing) and
creating circumstances of acceptance for violence and
humiliation to gain entrance into an organization.
