Not a too bad of an article, but I did find offense to the first little sketch in the article. They are so clever using Sigma Tau Delta.

I'm a member of Sigma Tau Delta (or was)-- it's an English Honor Society. It isn't a full-fledged fraternity, but it does exist. God only knows why they chose those letters, of course.

My boyfriend "aquired" a Sigma Tau Delta room sign from another school and he has it hanging up in his house. I thought that was a joke for a little while... then I felt bad when I realized it is a real organization! What an odd choice of letters! It makes me laugh when I walk by the sign though

I can't believe we registered on that campus. Do the tomb societies register? No.

But the national fraternities do.

"It is regrettable that historical perceptions from a long gone era—when a strained relationship existed between the Administration and fraternities—not only still prevail today, but also inform the level and nature of their relationship with the College."

Best quote in the article.

Because back then they just called it The Clap. The term "STD" has only come about in, I'd say, the last 20 years if that.
