What About the 8,200 Good Chapters?
Tim Burke, Manley Burke, firstname.lastname@example.org
Bloomberg Business1 recently reported that in the past spring semester, 133 fraternity or sorority chapters at 55 U.S. colleges were shut down, suspended or otherwise punished for various infractions. While the article, published on June 4, 2015, provided an interesting graphic and timeline, what it failed to put in perspective is that there are more than 8,500 fraternity and sorority chapters on American college campuses. No doubt some of the misconduct was serious, but the overwhelming majority of fraternities and sororities chapters do things right. Unfortunately, they get overlooked.
