I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. I believe that the Greek experience has been one of the most enduring symbols of my Dartmouth Experience. I continue to see fraternity brothers after leaving the Hanover Plain 44 years ago. We see each other socially at Weddings and periodic reunions and also have more than a 20 year history of skiing together. While acknowledging that the abuses cited, have regrettably always occurred at Dartmouth, the suggestions by the groups above, lay out a thoughtful approach to condoning reasonable social behaviors and banning together to disincent behaviors which destroy the fabric of inclusion, responsible social actions, and excessive consumption of alcohol. I am in favor of giving these ideas a chance to succeed.
