As I am going to attend my university education by this weekend,one thing that I am thinking of for a while is ragging(or Hazing).Though there is anti ragging committee and zero tolerance policy I heard ragging(Hazing) is common.Have you ever experienced it?

I experienced a form of hazing called the Shellback Initiation in the summer of 1982 while serving in the U.S. Navy. This happens when a vessel crosses the equator. Good times...(Rofl)

I don't condone hazing though...(Wasntme)

I don't know how things work in India, but I can safely guess you won't have any problems. Hazing generally takes place in special groups that you must try to join and are highly competitive. In the US this applies to fraternities, marching band and sports. I wouldn't worry about it at all if you going as a math/science student.
