As the Pandemic Persists, Is the Party Over For Campus Greek Life?

https://www.edsurge.com/news/2020-05...YYuzYUgBnOtC84

I find the title to be strange considering the content. Either way, a quick read about the benefits of Greek life during these times and how organizations are trying to adjust.

For example, in addition to adding signs on campus about handwashing and mask-wearing, Perlow envisions colleges developing peer-to-peer campaigns in which students challenge each other to stay safe.[/quote]

How old does she think these students are, 8?

I am envisioning corny scenarios in which collegiates admonish each other to stay safe. I can't help it.

For instance, my 2 youngest are at the same university so I'm picturing one cheerfully telling the other to keep his mask on. Or the other challenging his brother to see if he can increase his hand sanitizer use.

Not happening.

COVID has now affected my chapter in a way that affects me and other alumnae as well as the actives.

My chapter was chartered in November 1995, so we were going to have a 25th anniversary reunion/celebration this November. The planning committee has decided to scrap the reunion, maybe do something online, and maybe do something in November 2021 instead.

It's a shame. I was looking forward to seeing my sisters, meeting the younger sisters, and visiting Boston/Cambridge (I haven't been up there in years). A Zoom meeting just isn't the same.

So, one of the few openings we have right now is for a new Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life -- I'm on the interview team and we're interviewing candidates virtually next week.

In an era of budget cuts and fears, this is literally about the only position we're hiring for. Suddenly, colleges are figuring out we can help provide that real college experience students want, and we have an opportunity to figure out how to do it. Onward!
