I truly believe that my Dartmouth Experience would have been much less substantial without the friendships I formed through my fraternity. The connections I have built with these other outstanding gentlemen go as deep as I could hope. They match and often exceed me in many aspects, notably intellect, athleticism and integrity. These are people I know will be my friends for the rest of my life. Through the time I have spent at Phi Delta Alpha, I can truly call myself a better person. Of course I have been paying attention as many ugly faces of the Greek system have come to light, but I do not think these are the fault of the system at large, but of malicious individuals. Dartmouth, as it stands, is an amazing place to spend ones college years. It offers a superior undergraduate experience that I have found to be unparalleled as I learn more about my other friends college experiences. I am not sure this will remain true without the Greek System to supplement Dartmouths classrooms, so it is extremely concerning to hear chatter of abolition.
