Princeton Considers Greek Life BAN

After a series of revealing Daily Princetonian stories about campus hazing, Princeton University may ban fraternities and sororities altogether.

The Princeton Alumni Weekly reports:

...After nearly three decades of operating in the shadows, the Greek organizations could find themselves under the University's regulatory oversight or banished altogether, President Tilghman said May 5.

"At the moment I am keeping an open mind about all options," including retaining the University's existing policy of non-recognition, Tilghman said in an e-mail to PAW. One way to ban Greek life, she said, would be to require matriculating students to pledge not to join fraternities or sororities, the same method used when fraternities were banned from Princeton between 1855 and World War II.

Princeton fraternities declined to comment on the proposition.

What do you think? Should fraternities be shut out of college campuses?
