Centenary students react to hazing allegation

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Centenary students say they're shocked to hear about a hazing incident that reportedly took place off campus. "It doesn't sound like something that would come off Centenary campus," said student, Robyn Price.

Centenary College officials tell KSLA News 12 that a student was injured during a hazing incident that occurred sometime last week.

That student was reportedly treated and released. An investigation is underway.

It's unclear what kind of organization is suspected of the hazing incident, but some students believe it was a fraternity, and were disturbed to find out about the injured student.

"Because you know we all kind of hang out at those houses, on the weekends and it's like whoa. Wow. It's real," said Tiberlee Barnum, a student at Centenary.

"Centenary College does not tolerate hazing or any other conduct like that," said Matt Bailey with Centenary College's communications office.

The Centenary College administration is asking all student organization to reaffirm their understanding of hazing, and their commitment to preventing it. Also anti-hazing workshops for all Greek and student-lead organizations will be held at the college.
