In recent years, Asian-American Greek life has emerged on college campuses. But along with the rise of Asian-American fraternities have come incidents of hazing, at least one of which turned fatal.

Fraternity members Brian Gee and Ken Hui are joined by Marion Phoummarath, whose brother Jack died after a hazing ritual, to discuss the culture of Asian-American frat life.
