Thousands of college freshmen choose to enter Greek life each year. For young women, sorority rush often means dressing up -- but for young men, pledging a fraternity can mean excessive drinking during what has become known as hazing. Since the year 2000, 65 fraternity pledges have died as a result of fraternity hazing.
So what motivates these young adults to seek membership in these groups – especially when the process takes an unexpected or dark turn?

Dr. Gregory Parks, a professor at Wake Forest University and a nationally known expert on the psychology of hazing, joins Dr. Phil on Wednesday’s episode, “Deadly Brotherhood: The Fight to Stop College Hazing,” and shares four factors that motivate college students to join fraternities and sororities. Hear his thoughts in the video above.
On Wednesday, Dr. Phil speaks with the family of Stone Foltz, a 20-year-old college sophomore who died after a night of drinking during a hazing ritual at Bowling Green State University, and the family of Danny Santulli, who was left blind, and unable to speak, walk or care for himself after a hazing event.
