OUR VIEWS Brandon – I don’t like the idea of the people who is harassing people. I also agree that its stupid and unnecessary. De Amber - I really dislike the idea of hazing, If someone simply wants to join a frat or sorority and s/he is willing to endure the hazing, I say let them. But I think hazing is completely unnecessary, stupid, and immature.
