I am writing to express support for the Greek system, which has had such a positive effect on the lives of so many (including mine). It’s a blight on the college’s reputation for an outspoken minority-with no substantive cause for resentment-to attempt to eradicate, cripple, and publicly ridicule an institution that (i) they are not a part of and has had no bearing on there lives and (ii) has existed and fostered the good name and provided backing for the efforts of the school that has supported said minority for so long. The current direction of the college is extremely concerning – most recently as it relates to the college’s tolerance of sexually explicit antagonism at Rick Perry’s speech. Political affiliation aside, what was done is disgusting and discourages such visitors from coming to the school in the future. I could go on for days about this, but I have to return to the job the Dartmouth and the Greek system prepared me for – I hope the same system will exist for future students.
