I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. Dispanding the Greek System would negatively change that social atmosphere at Dartmouth forever, would eliminate one of the main differentiators Dartmouth has against other Ivy League institutions and erase hundreds of years of history of brotherhood and sisterhood. The egregious exaggerations of few in the media have cast an unjust dark light on the Greek System today. My Dartmouth experience would have been unfulfilled without Greek Life and I will forever look back fondly on my experiences. Resist the temptation to be compelled by media and outside forces to change a tradition that is deeply engrained in Dartmouth and its history. Educating our Greek leaders on making smarter and safer decisions is key to the future of Greek Life. However, the thought of Dartmouth without the Greek System is something I would not want to be associated with.
