Title

Editorial "Sororities: Why Not?"

Description

This editorial is written by a student who presents arguments in favor of installing local or national sororities at Westhampton College. There is a reference made to the “fourth plank” of the list of changes that were proposed by the Collegian to the University, which included the introduction of Greek life for women on campus. The writer urges the University to provide, “a poll of student sentiment,” to determine whether or not students feel the need for sororities. Arguments are made such as the comparison of Richmond College fraternities to Westhampton College and its lack of similar organizations. A poll of student opinions is requested in order to determine the next steps appropriate for the university in the debate of bringing sororities on campus.
