According to the recent fireside chat with Columtreal University Administrators, Columtreal University’s Greek Organizations are on the decline. With a rich history of sororities and fraternities believed to enhance the student experience with scholarly recognition, community service, and social collaboration it would be a shame to see the end of Greek Life at CU.
When asked why so many of our Greek Organizations have been disappearing, the Adminstration explained that the Greek Nationals had been revoking charters for various violations, decline in activity, and poor recruitment. While it seems that there is a larger power at work in shutting down our beloved Greek Organizations, we still have the ability to hang on to our time honored traditions of keggers and mixers.
With so many charters being revoked, there is now room for NEW Greek Organizations. It’s up to the student body to take the initiative to band together with like-minded individuals and create a charter that would adhere to the rules of both Nationals and CU Administration.
For more details, talk to your friendly Student Life staff. It’s time to offer a new spin on the classic college experience. What letters will YOU be wearing this fall?
