A new $25 Greek fee was passed unanimously in the student fee advisory subcommittee’s last meeting of the year on Friday.
The subcommittee’s decision was influenced heavily by the Greek councils’ decision to support the fee, which will only apply to those who are members of fraternities or sororities.
Most influential was the approval of the Interfraternity Council by a narrow vote of 9-7, which solidified the subcommittee’s views of the Greek community’s support.
“We felt that since the fee is only being levied on the Greek community and the leaders of each Greek council had voted in favor of the fee, we wouldn’t have been respecting the leadership of the Greek councils had we voted against the fee,” Student Body President Will Leimenstoll said.
“It wasn’t really our place to challenge the opinions of the elected officials of the Greek community.”
