StFX to take tougher action on hazing

March 2, 2009

Following 2 incidents of student hazing last fall, St Francis Xavier University intends to take a more active role in discouraging the practice. Through disciplinary hearings and sanctions, the school is sending a strong message that such behaviour will not be tolerated. The university's student union plans to be more proactive in how students are welcomed to the campus to ensure that they are not excluded or intimidated into doing things they don't want to do.
