Title

Article "Social life scrutinized"

Description

Due to the increase in drinking age in Virginia, the social life at the University of Richmond is under scrutiny. UR faculty made a motion to create a committee that would investigate and review the social life on campus, particularly the social life surrounding the Greek system. The committee would be comprised of faculty, administrators, Board of Trustee members, and students. The main focus of the committee is determined to be fraternities and the positive or negative contributions brought to the institutions on behalf of them. Many concerns have been brought forth due to the, “gross, almost animalistic behavior observed in the fraternities.” The Richmond College Student Government Association and the Interfraternity Council both support the creation of the committee and believe that “this committee will help improve relations between the faculty and the fraternities."
