Everyone has the freedom to have a space of their own and to build their own organization, but if all Greeks are ultimately doing the same thing in educating the community, building bonds within their organizations, and giving back to the greater community through service, what else divides all Greeks besides historical context?

Also, would anyone mind discussing inclusivity & exclusivity within GLOs? While many organizations want everyone (Greek & non-Greek) to come together, especially within a college environment, is it not ironic that Greeks are doing the opposite in being exclusive when they want inclusiveness within the community?

I can see why you asked about resigning from your group.You just don't get the whole thing at all.

I think you need to be more explicit in what you're wanting to discuss and who is being excluded from what.

Yeah, I didn't get it either. According to Urban Dictionary, QTNA means "Questions That Need Answers".....or possibly "Quietly Tapping New A**".

If all Christians worship Christ, why are there so many denominations? Why don't we all just make up one big church?

That's the type of question you're asking.

Your second guess reminds me of that Iota dude who was always getting banned and coming back with a new name. Except for the "quietly" part.
