Is hazing still part of initiation rites?

According to this article, two students from UPLB have been charged for the death of another student due to hazing.

Hmm. In this day and age, is hazing still part of initiation ries? Don’t students have enough common sense to not join fraternities that still practice hazing as part of their initiation rites? I really don’t have anything against fraternities. I think, they’re mere variations of organizations that have very, very focused goals. (An organization just seems “more serious” if it’s dubbed as a “fraternity” instead of a “club” di ba?)

Fratenity is about brotherhood (or sisterhood for sororities) but taking extreme pain and/or humiliation for acceptance and recognition is just plain senseless.
