I am writing in support of the Greek proposal to address some of the most visible and pressing issues at Dartmouth today. Being a member of a greek organization at Dartmouth was an essential element of my educational, professional and personal development. It provides experience and opportunity in leadership and management roles, and a mandate and platform to benefit the community through coordinated action. Through that process I have gained life-long friendships, both among my classmates and alumni in classes that are many years removed from my class year. If I had not been a part of a greek organization, I would never have had that opportunity. Dartmouth would provide lesser opportunities for its students without greek organizations that provide single-sex or co-ed housing for their members at the election of the organization. We all realize that greek organizations should be reformed. Zeta Psi has recently completed that process and should be a valuable example to the Dartmouth community.
