Students join organizations for a variety of reasons, but never to be hazed.  What do new members want?  Among the many things they want are:

To make friends 
To have a positive experience 
To learn about the organization 
To feel wanted and needed 
To be informed as to what the organization expects from them 
To join an organization, not a disorganization 
To be respected as individuals and treated fairly
To be helped in adjusting to campus life 
To do only the work that initiated members do 
To respect older members 
To have lots of fun.
