There are three, just three. And no matter what the length of the new member or pledge program may be, these three deadly nights are always included if the chapter involved uses hazing practices.
First of the Deadly Three
The first night, of course, is the evening that the new members or pledges receive their bids. Although the bids may be presented during the day, the activities always occur at night. In the Greek community, we have a lot of different names for the simple process of inviting someone to join, don’t we? “Bid Night,” “Presents”(sic), “Call out,” “Pass out”(men are passed along over a crowd on the hands of members), “Jump” (men leap into a crowd) and the list is long.
