I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. I made some of my best friends through the Greek system as well as had many of the best experiences of my college career through the Greek system. I made friends with people I would have never met through academic settings, got involved with Abolishing the Greek system will drive drinking into the dorms or off-campus and will lead to dangerous situations where students will be even less likely to seek out help if they or a friend drinks too much. Having a house on campus is the main reason I still feel connected with the school and it gives me a reason to want to visit and to donate to the school. Losing the Greek system would be a major loss even as an alumnus.
