Review of entire Greek system needed for change


In response to Bob Winston’s letter, (“Greek review to focus on Greeks, not administration,” Jan. 19), if you want to have the best Greek system in the country, then it might be a good idea to examine the structure and operations of the University offices that interact with Greek organizations.

From what I have read and heard firsthand, it appears that the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life has contributed its fair share to the problems. The individuals who are in charge of overseeing fraternities and sororities have demonstrated an inability to carry out their responsibilities in a professional manner.

Loading down Greek leaders with burdensome requirements and hounding fraternity presidents by calling them in the middle of the night are two examples of the ineffective approach that has been taken. The correct way to establish a cooperative relationship between the University and the Greek system is to analyze the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life in tandem with the analysis of the Greek community. It is my wish that these two dueling factions will one day work in tandem rather than in the current condition of subordination.

I have two younger sisters currently involved in Greek life at UNC. I have the utmost faith that Jordan Whichard will enable them to graduate with a much more efficient system than is currently present. In order for this to be realistic, all factions of the current Greek system need to be under thorough review, especially the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
