Monmouth University suspends all fraternities and sororities indefinitely

https://www.app.com/story/news/educa...ly/1210161002/

Quote:
Monmouth University has suspended all fraternities and sororities until further notice, citing the Greek community's inadequate response to "serious conduct violations," the Asbury Park Press has learned.

All non-educational activities sponsored by Monmouth's seven fraternities and nine sororities have been canceled, including pledging and recruitment efforts, parties, and community service events.

I'm confused by this article and hope someone who knows the situation better can clarify. What does the situation at Penn State have to do with this university? Beta does not appear to have a chapter at Monmouth and the university is not in Pennsylvania, so I don't see how the two are related.

You should read the whole article. There have been incidents on the Monmouth campus and meetings with the Greeks and administration going back to last school year.

It's a Search Engine Optimization tactic - just a way to make the story rise higher in search results to get more clicks.

As for the article story:

- It's another article which takes only the perspectives of the administration into account (no mention of how similar community suspensions have proven ineffective - UCF has done two in four years and still has extreme issues no matter which policies they put into place)

- A troubling element is that the housing is unrecognized, so any activities taking place during the suspension are more likely to be kept secret, increasing the chance of danger or that a dangerous incident will not be promptly reported

- To say that the students must come up with a decision because "top-down mandates don't work," but then to turn down the student's decision because it does not meet criteria set at the top is contradictory at best.

I really have a hard time understanding the method behind some administration's actions, but nonetheless here's hoping that the students at Monmouth stay safe throughout the suspension.

Also apparently the Piazzas are from NJ so that lends local interest.

I canít think of anything thatís going to lay a bigger goose egg than this kind of action by a university president whoís been in office just a little over a year, at a school where the administration has zero control over the housing the Greeks are in.

And lol at cancelling parties at off campus houses, although with this generation that suffers from social media diarrhea it might actually work.
