Title

Article "Little sisters' image poses controversy"

Description

Director and assistant director of student activities, Max Vest and Alison Bartel met with the deans, fraternity presidents, and little sisters to address the controversy caused by rush posters that many believed to be exploitative towards fraternity little sisters.These posters advertised parties called "The Playboy Bunny Lounge" and "Get With the Little Sisters." While many believe this to be degrading, the little sisters, Cindy Ziegler and Elizabeth Francy for example, are not offended and think people are getting worked up about nothing. The little sisters even sponsored the parties and chose their outfits. Bill Campbell, a Theta Chi brother claims these parties are what the rushes want and they're just doing what they can to rush new members.
