There are a lot of benefits to belonging to a fraternity or sorority: friendship, leadership opportunities, a home away from home. But the Greek system also has a reputation for alcohol abuse, hazing, and other undesirable behavior. Unlike many colleges and universities, Cornell isn't trying to get rid of its Greeks. But what role should the university take in addressing the flaws?
Guests: Susan Murphy, Vice President for Student and Academic Services; Tony Cashen '57, MBA '58, chair of the Fraternity and Sorority Advisory Council; Alison Ewing '10, Panhellenic Association President-elect; Eddie Rooker '10, Interfraternity Council President-Elect; Allen Miller '11, Executive Vice President-elect.
