BANGKOK — From spleens being burst as a result of beatings and screaming university chants while rolling in mud, to an abusive religious camp where students were forced to stand reciting pledges until 5am, activists ranked the worst instances of hazing to break the news in 2018.

 

The anti-hazing watchdog Anti Sotus ranked the worst offenses of the hazing tradition of Strength, Order, Tradition, Unity and Spirit (SOTUS), in 2018, with four of the top ten involving high-school students.

Abusive 'Buddhist Camp'

Yet another oxymoron, even for allowing for any so-called 'radical' factions within Buddhism.

Why does hazing exist except for the immature minds that think it is something

that has to be done to new members of some group. Always hated the practise.

Geezer

Perfectly normal spiteful, venomous behaviour.

Tolerated by the incompetent fools of the education system of Thailand.

Carry on Thailand. :coffee1:

Hmm i wonder i heard thai students dont study.

Good point and there's more, at many uni's who condode (deliberately ignore) the hazing activity large numbers of students (M and F) are pushed to join things like cheerleading teams and when inter-uni football matches etc., are coming up they spend many hours out of class time to practice their dancing routines, and professors are quietly told to say nothing to the said students and ensure they get good grades. 

 

I've even had students who are in the dancing practice ask for classes to be postponed, classes to be conducted a second time on the weekend et., for the students going to dancing practice.

 

And there is pressure on professors to do things like this, even through you are expected to conduct the classes according to the normal schedule then conduct the class again for no extra compensation.

 

I seem to recall 'dancing' is not the reason why I attended university.
