Beta Theta Pi rejects hazing as a part of fraternity life and instead emphasizes an educational experience which is morally uplifting and intellectually stimulating. The Beta ritual should be the critical ingredient of a distinctive and enduring lifelong experience of brotherhood.
Instruction of new members should include a knowledge of the history, lore and laws of the Fraternity to prepare them for active membership. Initiation marks the beginning of many years of continued education and emphasis on living Beta's principles and obligations.
The hotline is housed in the offices of Manley Burke law offices in Cincinnati. Calls are received around the clock on a voice mail system that digitally records the call. The call is then forwarded via an e-mail audio clip to the administrative office together with the state hazing law that is applicable.
If you or any new member of your chapter is subjected to hazing please call the anti-hazing hotline at 1-800-NOT-HAZE immediately.
