Title

Article "Faculty withholds fraternity award as fraternities fight accusations"

Description

Each year, the faculty presented two awards to fraternities. These two awards are given to the most outstanding fraternity, and to the most improved fraternity. The criteria these are based on academic achievement, IM sports, lodge improvements, new member education, and more. However, Henry Stewart, a Sociology professor, and four other faculty members on the Richmond College Dean's Student Affair Committee, conveyed the faculty's doubts about this year's awards. This is due to the fraternity's poor discretion when advertising rush parties. The fraternities used misogynistic imagery in their party posters. The article also explains that this is a reaction by the faculty to a letter written by Business School instructor Janet Kotler to the Collegian to criticize fraternities. For which, her children were told: "Tell your mother that she needs a good lay."
