Florida A&M's Marching 100 returns to the field Sunday for the first time since the 2011 death of the band's drum major during a hazing ritual. The tragedy sparked a broad crackdown on hazing on campuses, but the tradition is proving to be hard to eradicate.
The Student Nonprofit Alliance of Slippery Rock University has received nearly 10,000 books for their "We Can Read!" book drive to honor young readers killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Initiation rites are so ingrained in parts of college life that even egregious incidents aren't enough to eradicate hazing, experts say. Investigations into last month's death of a FAMU band major are under way.
