On Wednesday afternoon, members of the Inter-Fraternity and Sorority Council hosted a "Greek Luau" event to introduce new and old students to all 26 of the Greek organizations on campus.

"We want to show that we're not just about hazing or drinking alcohol, we're about helping out the community and the students here on-campus," said Anthony Randazzo, President of Member Development on the council.

Members said that the event's goal is to introduce students to the idea of joining Greek life, while making sure they are confident that they will not be exposed to hazing in the process.

Wednesday's event came in the wake of a judge throwing out the most serious charges against 8 Penn State fraternity brothers indicted in the hazing death of a 19-year-old student.

Officials say hazing is not tolerated at NJIT, and if caught, students can be kicked off campus or their organization can become unrecognized.
