Question Harvard U

I got this from a Source that Harvard after having BOOTED ALL GREEKS, have done a Study! Go Figure, That all of the ways that they have tried to intergrate sexes and minoritys have come to the conclussion, that guess what, the Greek Housing System works!

They are considering allowing Greek Organizations to re-charter or apply to enter the School Again!

I love it after on the heels Of Alfred U Kicking ALL Greek Orgs Off of campus in the dead of night type thing!

Has anyone heard of this? It was written up in a Journal that came out from them!

I hope, that each and everyone of you write to your Nationals asking for the backing for the Greek Organizations that have been on campus!

It is time that WE AS GREEKS START TAKING A STAND!

WE as GLO, BGLO, and MGLO need to stand toghether !

Now is the time to do it!

One of my bestest friends in the whole world goes to Harvard. I'll ask him if he has heard anything about this.

I know for a fact that Harvard University has the following:

Sororities:
-Kappa Alpha Theta
-Delta Gamma

Fraternities:
-Delta Upsilon
-Sigma Chi
-Alpha Epsilon Pi

None of these are recognized by the school as of yet, but all are full-fledged chapters.

Pike at Harvard

I know that Pi Kappa Alpha has recently colonized at Harvard. They were there in late January and February, and signed 33 gentlemen, 27 of whom are involved in varsity athletics. The cumulative GPA for the colony is 3.3.

Pike's colonization may have come after booting the Greeks, but I know that they have the backing of the University and are an outstanding group of gentlemen.

I FINALLY remembered to ask my friend about this. He says Greeks aren't recognized on campus and has not heard about what you mentioned, Tom. He is going to look into it for me by asking on the newspaper e-mail list. I'll letcha know what he says! Has anyone else heard anything about this?

Harvard booted greeks a long time ago, didn't they? I know someone who studied there in the 60's an' I recall him sayin' they didn't have any. He was however a member of a club... the sort that usually precedes many fraternities on campus (the difference bein' they don't live in a house together). I'm sure if greeks re-colonize Harvard many of those groups will turn greek in a flash.

an' man, screw TKE. some o' those chapters will take anyone: like a cheap ho! which is why TKE gets such a bad rap; for its rotten apples. I don't think every TKE chapter or member's bad, or that they shouldn't colonize harvard. I'm just sayin' that bein' the bottom o' the barrel ain't nothin' a be proud of.

And BTW, I'm not at all surprised that a harvard study found that greek organizations are key to having a healthy social life on campus. I'm sure we've all known that in our hearts all along.

Thumbs down Wrongf words

First off what the hell is Kappa Delta Rho? Second yes there are some bad apples in any org......But we are by far not the bottom of the barrel.....Third if you are vere in New Orleans or an outlying area, you might not want to say that, cause if you had said that in my town, you wouldnt be able to talk for a while, your jaw would be wired shut! and its happened twice so watch your mouth! Fourth is all this animosity something personal? Did one of the TKEs at your campus take your girlfriend, or do they always beat yall in everything, or do they just stomp on you and the only way you will ever say anything back is over a computer, for fear of retribution?

Yikes! Nothing like a little Greek brotherhood to keep a thread winding along it's merry way.

Verbally trashing another's fraternity is a no-no. On the other hand, physical violence seldom wins in the long run. Unless you're the only kid on the block with nuclear weapons.

Play nice, boys.

Just wanted to say that it is great to hopefully have a University realize what an asset greek life is, it would be great to see Greeks back to Harvard!

And Oh Yeah, just a note, The TKE boys are some of the nicest guys on my campus they are a fabulous group of men, and always a ton of fun to hang out with!
