In honor of National Hazing Prevention Week, UL will host a guest speaker who knows the negative impacts of hazing all too well.

Rae Ann Gruver is the mother of Max Gruver, who died of alcohol poisoning after a hazing incident a little over two years ago.

KATC's Abby Breidenbach was LIVE at Angelle Hall with more details on tonight's seminar.

Max was one of four young men who died in fraternity hazing incidents in 2017 alone. He was an LSU freshman pledging Phi Delta Theta when he died.

Now his family is working to make sure this doesn't happen to anybody else by informing people of Max's story.

At 6 p.m. on Monday, September 23, Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and Sigma Chi Fraternity will host a seminar with Rae Ann Gruver at Angelle Hall.

According to, more than half of college students in clubs, teams and organizations have experienced hazing.
