Fraternity executive to speak at Coastal on hazing

A former law professor and assistant prosecuting attorney will make the case against hazing when he speaks at Coastal Carolina University on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The event is free and open to the public.

Dave Westol, chief executive director of Theta Chi Fraternity, will present "Hazing on Trial," a speech using the format of a mock trial to drive home important points about hazing. Westol has given his speech more than 1,600 times on 300-plus campuses and at 100 national fraternity and sorority conventions highlighting points about student liability and individual responsibility.

Westol has worked extensively in the areas of risk management and liability. He has lectured extensively on legal affairs relating to fraternity and sorority life. "Hazing is endemic in American schools from junior high through graduate and professional schools," says Westol. "It is also rampant in the military and a hidden cancer for oil riggers, firemen and others in the workforce."

The speaker is an alumnus of Michigan State University and the Detroit College of Law.

Westol's appearance is being sponsored by Coastal's Office of Student Activities and Leadership. For more information, call 349-2301.
