Acts of hazing includes any action taken or situation created to produce mental or physical discomfort, interpersonal violence, discrimination, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule. Such activities may include, but are not limited to: use of alcohol, paddling in any form, inciting excessive fatigue, morally degrading or humiliating activities, late work sessions which interfere with academic activities, wearing public apparel that is conspicuous and not normally in good taste, and any other activities which are not consistent with the regulations and policies of the educational institution or applicable Local, State, or Federal Law.
