I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. As an adult, the majority of friendships I have made within my Sig Ep house are friends to this day. Four of these friends were Groomsmen at my wedding. It is hard to imagine what my life would have been like without the tight support from all these friends. Over the past year, I have had to deal with countless hardships. The people that have most been their to support me through this are my friends made 10 years ago at a house on Webster Ave. I doubt I would have found these friends and grown so close to them without Sig Ep. If you end Greek life at Dartmouth, I will be very upset at the turn the college has taken. It will be just another small liberal arts college in New England like Colby, Middlebury, or Bowdoin. Sleepy. Undifferentiated. End Greek Life and you destroy one of the integral parts of Dartmouth’s rich fabric and history and you will make me feel as though the place I went to school NO LONGER EXISTS. Frats aren’t the problem. Its the admission process.
