For DePaul junior Bobby Schrock, a 22-year-old political science major, joining a fraternity at the country's largest Catholic university has been a "very rewarding experience."
But Schrock is not your typical Greek. He is gay and one of a growing population on university campuses: gay members of a fraternity or sorority.
The ranks have grown so much that 85 members from universities around the country gathered this weekend at DePaul University, which hosted the first National Out and Greek Leadership Conference. Workshop sessions included topics relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, such as violence on campus, how to break harmful hazing traditions and activism as it relates to policy change.
