After approximately 45 minutes of speeches, students marched to fraternity row, chanting “Don’t take my tuition, without Greek Life abolition” and “Hey hey, ho ho, Wash. U. Greek Life has to go.”
In this week’s episode of Editor’s Note, Multimedia Editor Jaden Satenstein talks to Managing Editor Jayla Butler about her coverage of the Greek Life abolition movement.
Wash. U. allows fraternities to be active on campus, allows them to host parties, allows them to continue to operate despite all of the harm. If the University chooses to allow these activities, it is their responsibility to make them safe for students.
Alpha Delta Phi, Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) and Theta Xi have all been placed back in good standing by Campus Life.
The updated policy aims to address power imbalances between fraternities and sororities, give chapters the ability to opt out of security guards at dry mixers and outlines a pilot program starting in March that will increase the number of Greek social events allowed per night from three to four.
Women in Washington University sororities reported sexual harassment or assault by members of every Greek fraternity chapter in an independent survey commissioned by the Women’s Panhellenic Association.
After the permanent suspension of PhiDelt, Wash. U. is considering re-assigning fraternity House 5 to one of two groups on campus—black students or the Women’s Panhellenic Association.
Washington University placed Alpha Epsilon Pi on temporary suspension due to allegations of policy violations related to alcohol at social events at the chapter’s campus house between Feb. 17 and Feb. 23.
In the statement, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) objects to Phi Delt’s behavior, from the fraternity’s initial temporary suspension for hazing to its violation of the suspension’s terms.
Washington University has a pathetic history when it comes to disciplining fraternities for hazing, sexual assault and harassment, racist practices and violating any watered-down punishment.
