She said the footage she foundmostlycontainedstudents from the Evatt House, Edwards Hall and International House campus living quarters.
Ms Funnell told Fairfax Media that theNewcastle case study was the first of several from universities around , a result of the advocacy group’s two month investigation.The others will be released to coincide with each particular uni’s orientation week.
“One of the things we know about freshers [first year students] in particular is that they’re going through a massive period of transition and upheaval in their life when they start college,” Ms Funnell said.
“They will have a very strong need for belonging and a very strong need for structure around them.
“For someone who is going through all that change, who is going from high school to university, who may be feeling uncertain, who may be feeling anxious – that proposition of having an instant family provided you [participate in the behaviour] is very difficult to pass up.”
A University of Newcastle spokesperson saidthe university was“appalled” at the behaviour displayed in the video.
“The university takes all allegations of student misconduct seriously and act swiftly to remove offensive behaviour from our campuses where it is reported,” she said.“Four years ago, the university took over additional management responsibilities of the residential colleges. Since that time, we have worked consistently to develop and implement targeted programs aimed at educating students and their support staff on the appropriate behaviours and our expectations of conduct in our community.
“As well as the education and preventative measures, students found to have behaved in this way are subject to severe penalties.”
