Question: What should we do about the IFC President and VP of Risk Management, whose chapter is under investigation for hazing?
Question: What should the Greek community do: stand united behind a constituent member, or make that chapter an example?
Question: Is hazing only a fraternity issue, or is this shared with sororities?
Question: Will this incident actually stop hazing?
Proposition: While hazing, alcohol abuse, and sexual assault only happens at other chapters (and not our own), we are quick to state that the entire Greek community engages in a high level of community service and maintains excellent standards of scholarship... including even those chapters that only fulfill the requirement of one event per semester.
We cry when people make assumptions about the Greek community when one chapter messes up: it's not fair, it's not fair, we say. However, we want to make sure that honors and recognition bestowed on one chapter are construed as a reflection of the Greek community in general.
This isn't fair to those chapters (and individuals) who are pulling their own weight.
