I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. In September a group of Beta 65s met in Seattle for our annual reunion. We can probably call these lifelong friendships after 50 years. For us the Dartmouth experience was immeasurably enhanced by the Beta house. It wasn’t merely our fraternity, it was Dartmouth and our fraternity that keep us active in college affairs. Largely because of our experience in a fraternity, members of our Greek organization have contributed significantly to the college as undergraduates and alumni. Excessive efforts to sterilize the Dartmouth experience are likely to turn our unique institution into just a very selective diploma mill.
