Newswise: ‘Would You?’ WVU responds to hazing tragedy with awareness campaign

‘Would You?’ WVU responds to hazing tragedy with awareness campaign

West Virginia University

“Nolan, breathe for me, buddy.” It’s been five years since Nolan Burch, a freshman at West Virginia University, was unable to respond to that plea as he lay on a board at the Kappa Sigma house where he had participated in a hazing event held by unsanctioned fraternity that included chugging a bottle of bourbon. A day later, the 18-year-old was taken off life support, and his organs donated to four other individuals – one of whom is now a WVU student.
