I understand that if I do not meet the requirements of the preceding, I will not be eligible to join a Fraternity. I also understand that my grade point average and the information on this card will be available through Texas A&M University-Commerce Greek Life Office, and verify that this information is accurate, to the best of my knowledge. Should I join a fraternity, I approve of having my grades released each semester to a university Greek Affairs Official and/or an officer of the fraternity. It is understood that this information shall be used only for the organization’s scholarship programs.
Hazing a member or prospective member of a registered student organization is strictly prohibited, and is also in violation of student conduct codes and state law. Individuals found to be involved in hazing practices are subject to individual student judicial sanction, and the student organization found to have members involved in hazing is subject to sanctions up to and including loss of organization recognition. Students must not agree to submit to hazing in order to obtain membership in a student organization.
I understand that no chapter, colony, student, or alumnus shall conduct nor condone hazing activities. Hazing activities are defined as "any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities may include, but are not limited to, the following: use of alcohol; abuse using water; paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; quests, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, road trips, or any other such activities carried on outside or inside of the confines of the chapter house; wearing of public apparel that is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public students and buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; and any other activities that are not consistent with academic achievement; fraternal law, ritual or policy; or the regulations and policies of the education institution or applicable state law.
By signing below I indicated that I have read and understand the Texas A&M University-Commerce hazing policy. I also agree not to submit to or participate in hazing of any form.
