That's very encouraging. I'm glad to see that at least somewhere, IFC isn't just capitulating to whatever demand the administration has.

I shared an article from the NY Times a few days ago, in another thread (said thread was closed due to ... well ... yeah... enough said), about the situation at Cal Poly SLO. Now this. Cannot say I am surprised.

Powerful letter from the College President.

Sigh.

Letter from a SLO student who is not affiliated with a GLO expressing their disappointment that all Greek Life has been indefinitely suspended.

What does the suspension of Greek life actually do for Cal Poly's diversity and climate? Please. I actually want to know. I'm not even in Greek life; I'm just a student who cannot believe this almost insultingly transparent Public Relations ploy is genuinely what my administration came up with. IFC had already voted to put themselves on indefinite social probation. Panhellenic was literally in the process of doing the same when the president of the university and several members of administration waltzed into their meeting and declared the decision was their own. Other Greek organizations were prepared to stand AGAINST Lambda Chi and the now infamous Kyler Watkins. They were drafting needs assessments and inclusivity plans.

TLLK, that's pretty much the response I'd expect from a student. The issues at Cal Poly SLO are way deeper. And this was far from an "almost insultingly transparent Public Relations ploy". The action from IFC and proposed action from Panhellenic are, frankly, too little too late. You don't put a bandaid on a bleeding stump.

I'm not attacking you, please understand that. This is a very deep systemic issue that affects the college culture and beyond. Heck, we have at least one member here willing to defend the actions of Lambda Chi and try to make this something less than what it actually is. Make no mistake, it's not just that fraternity, despite what the student wrote. Hence the action of the College President. His letter addresses First Amendment rights.

No worries AZTheta. You're just giving your response to what I posted.

Gamma Phi Beta at Texas State is up and running again, so I assume other chapters are jumping through the hoops and doing the same.

http://gato-docs.its.txstate.edu/jcr...an-02-2018.pdf

We missed our 50th anniversary celebration, so now they will do it in the fall - when I cannot attend because of the Texas Renaissance Festival. Thanks, President Trauth!

Murray State University(KY) has suspended all Greek Life activities after a reported sexual assault and the death of a visitor at a fraternity. The suspension will more than likely carry into Fall '18 while investigations continue.
