Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

September of each year was known as Hell Week, a time when fraternity and sorority pledges were put through a series of initiations, which if passed, would gain them membership into the organization of their choice. Pledges were often required to wear odd clothing while on campus, which included everything from long underwear to bathing caps to ham bones. In this 1948 shot, female sorority pledges are wearing cardboard boxes as part of their initiation.
