Article "NIFC questions little sister program"

Description

This University of Richmond Collegian article states that the University is not being forced to eliminate the little sister programs from its fraternities. However, Walt Whitt, E. Claiborne Robins School of Business junior and president of the Interfraternity Council adds that the National Interfraternity Council does recommend the removal of little sister programs due to their “diverting resources of time, effort and money; distracting the performance of the chapter members; inviting disharmony within the chapter; and possibly weakening the bonds of brotherhood.” It is up to each chapter to choose to follow the NIFC resolution. Jennifer Higgins, Kappa Sig little sister, explains that the national organization of Kappa Sigma support of the NIFC resolution has led to the creation of an “honorary sisters” organization, not affiliated with the fraternity yet still promoting friendship. Honorary groups have been created by other little sister programs.
