Freshman Hazing

To the college students of today it is quite startling to hear that at one time hazing of freshman was a common practice at colleges, including here at Brockport. The photo on display shows some members of the Class of 1967 being hazed on the sidewalk outside the dorms on Kenyon Street in the fall of 1963. This hazing took part in one way or another from as early as the 1920s up into the late 1960s. The "beanies" were a post WWII addition to things!
