Is "Greek party" code for something?

Aren't fraternities & sororities independent organizations?  Their houses are privately owned.  ...that their members also happen to be college students is purely incidental.  What influence would the university really have over them -- any more than any other private organization?

Are we supposed to feel bad about this or something?

Reading the name of the college is enough to drive me to drink, then again so is being awake.

At some school yes at others no. Some will have their houses on campus and they can be throw out for various reasons. I read once about a frat that was off campus of a university and the house was owned by the frat itself and the school kept trying to exert authrioty over it, but they had no real power since it was a private residence off campus. It was painted as a "animal house" type place that pretty much told the campus police to eff off any chance they got.

...so, basically, a school only really has authority to the extent that it provides a house or other financial benefits to the fraternity.  If the fraternity is willing to shoulder the cost of a house on its own, then it can give the school the finger when their interests conflict?

Seems fair.

No Greek parties?  Where will they get their homo-erotic fun then?

What's the big deal? I went to a school that banned kegs. All it did was help us practice our problem solving skills.

In college a "reason" to have a party was subjective.

I think in the end the frat pissed off the school so much they revoked the charter and IIRC kicked a few of the members out of school. I think they rewrote a few rules or "interpreted" them in another way to get power over them. But I think most colleges can revoke a fraterinty or sorority charter if they become too out of control.

Frats and sororities are gangs for white people.

Frats still need to play nice with campus authorities if they want to be able to recruit pledges on campus, participate in campus-wide Greek events, et cetera.

These restrictions will just make wild partying happen off-campus.

I can't understand why schools still maintain an affiliation with the Greek system. All the school gets out of the relationship is massive liability exposure. Smarter to sever any ties, make frat / sorority houses relocate off campus and treat them as any other club with regard to any on-campus activity. My old school allowed them to have booths during clubs week and the "Greek Council" could meet on campus like any other club but all the weird-ass crap like rushing and the parties were OC no exceptions. \even the campus space they used was through the undergraduate student council, not the university.

Usually they're organized as a student organization, so the school could revoke their student organization status. If it's a national fraternity they'll require the chapter to be in good standing with the school and with the campus Interfraternity Council. National Fraternities usually revoke the chapter's Charter if they don't play nice. So if the school wants to pull the plug on the chapter, the national organization usually will too. If there's a shelter not owned by the school it's typically owned by a separate alumni organization that acts as landlord, and so the alumni organization can exert control over the undergrad chapter as well.

What about top shelf pussy? Are they gonna ban that too? Cause frat boys can get pretty inventive with themselves if they have to.
 
2014-01-14 05:18:02 PM
I love how they think they're actually doing something by "banning kegs".  Not banning alcohol.  So you ban one particular method out of a multitude of options for transporting alcohol?  What the hell do you think that's going to do?  It'll just result in drinking alcohol other ways.

And zero farks were given by anyone who is not in a fraternity/sorority.

I went to school there back in the early 90's.  I recall that they had a party right after the start of the school year that resulted in an underage student trying to down a bottle of Jim Bean, then going into a coma from alcohol poisoning.

When he recovered, he was rather shocked to find out that his frat brothers had claimed he had shown up that drunk.

Well Fark doesn't usually green articles about fraternity/sorority members providing academic tutoring, leadership training, service opportunities and career connections to their members... That one chapter that finally had enough alcohol violations to get booted off campus makes for a much better headline.

Fraternities.  You know a bunch of spoiled white kids, who put stupid Greek letters on all their stuff, never study, never learn anything meaningful, but use their social contacts to lie, cheat, and steal their way through college, before going on to careers where they do the same, only with the added drama of running multi-billion dollar companies into the ground with their crap.

In my area, Sonoma State U and the town of Rohnert Park have laws against frat houses. Something like no more than six unrelated people can live in any one off-campus house.

Alcohol bans on college campuses are always very successful and students never find ways around them.

They also make it easier for the school to get rid of students they don't want their.

Ah! The old alma mater....

Good luck with that. It's a beautiful campus, in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Screw the frats, there are PLENTY of places to drink and socialize on Higuera St. I never knew anyone in a frat or set foot in a frat house my whole 4 years there.

Of course, I was the kind who'd be more inclined to vape a bowl in my car in the parking lot at Montana De Oro, then throw on Boards of Canada on my ipod and go for a hike or a walk along the cliffs.

I miss those days...

Kind of pointless, the University can't enforce the ban out side the campus so the parties will just be moved off campus and done in such a way they are not easily tied to a frat or sorority.
