For Kennesaw State student, ending campus hazing is personal (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)


KENNESAW, Ga. (Nov 6, 2018) — For Kennesaw State University senior Juliana Piazza, ending hazing on college campuses became very personal a year ago.

On Feb. 4, 2017, her cousin, Timothy, died two days after a drinking party at a fraternity house at Penn State University, where he was a student. Tim was pledging to join Beta Theta Pi fraternity. A grand jury found Piazza, 19, died as a direct result of "reckless conduct" of members of the fraternity, aided by the permissive atmosphere fostered by Penn State's Interfraternity Council.
