This study is focused on how students from higher education perceive hazing practices (as violent/non-violent practices) and the relationship between hazing and the levels of satisfaction with life. The sample was comprised by 585 students from two Portuguese higher education institutions and the data was collect through a questionnaire. The results show that 10%-11% of the students describe hazing as an occurrence with some violence.
