I just want to mention this quote from former UVA President John Casteen following the murder Yeardley Love.


Quote:
"My hope for Yeardley, and for you," said University of Virginia president John Casteen at a May 6, 2010 candlelight vigil,[24] "is that her dying inspires an anger, a sense of outrage that engenders determination here and wherever Yeardley's name is recognized that no woman, no person in this place, this community, this state, our nation need either fear for her safety or experience violence for any reason."
I'm not really sure what can be done to "fix this" or if some sort of total overhaul is needed. But I find it deeply troubling that the murder of a student didn't generate change, and if that wasn't enough, what will be enough?

Also, what kind of change is needed, it's not just Greek life, something needs to be changed on the campus and in its administration.
