Hazing is a violation of laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and Longwood University policies. Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created intentionally, whether on or off Longwood property, by either fraternity/sorority organizations, student clubs/organizations, athletic teams, individual students or student groups, to produce mental or physical discomfort, endangerment of life, embarrassment, harassment, intimidation, or ridicule. Willingness to engage in any hazing activity does not render the Anti-Hazing Policy unenforceable.

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life manages a Hazing Hotline (2222). The Associate Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life or Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life check the hotline voice mail each weekday. If an incident occurs over the weekend, persons are encouraged to contact the Longwood University Police (2091).
When incidents are reported, the office of Fraternity and Sorority Life will gather information and refer that to the Office of Student Conduct and Integrity.
