Freshmen Are More Likely to Die in Fraternity Rituals

Bloomberg News identified 60 fraternity-related deaths in the U.S. since 2005. Of the 60, 24 were freshmen. Most of the freshmen died from alcohol abuse or after initiation rituals.

Published Oct. 15, 2013

Note: Deaths occurred at chapter houses on- or off-campus or elsewhere during or after fraternity events. In many cases a student death has led to litigation in which the college and/or fraternity deny responsibility.
