Article "WC Student Group Launches Drive to Bring Sororities to University"

Description

Westhampton students alongside the director of student affairs, Max Vest, and assistant director, Debbie Davis, sent a questionnaire to all Westhampton students in order to gather information on student sentiment regarding bringing sororities to the University of Richmond campus. Both Vest and the dean of Westhampton College, Stephanie Bennett, agree that a good sorority system would be “very healthy for the University's overall system." Originally, sororities were discouraged because the university was thought to be too small to sustain such organizations. Now that the university has grown in size, students are advocating to have sororities. The results of the questionnaire will be presented to the Board of Trustees, and if approved by the board, faculty, and WC students, formal invitations will be sent to national sororities.
