Dartmouth College students, alumni and even trustees have spoken out against Andrew Lohse's account of Greek life at the Ivy League school, first published by the school's student newspaper. Lohse is a senior at Darmouth and a former member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

A recent article published in Rolling Stone magazine by Janet Reitman has brought more attention to the issue and delves further into Greek life at Dartmouth. The piece is titled "Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy: Inside Dartmouth's Hazing Abuses."

Lohse's account might make you wonder what makes people accept and perpetuate hazing rituals?
