I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. Change has to come from within and the Greek leaders have made unprecedented steps toward changing the negative aspects of fraternity life. The positive aspects (community, social, friendship, philanthropy) are already in place. If we get rid of fraternities to “solve” the social problems, the problems will go into dorms or out onto the streets in bars. Its so much safer, and smarter, to keep the “problems” in the open.
