Title

Article "Faculty approves sorority proposal"

Description

This article describes the steps that the University of Richmond took in order to bring sororities to Westhampton College. After the faculty committee voted to “recommend the institution of sororities at the University,” the social life committee reviewed the recommendation and forwarded it to the student affairs committee of the Board of Trustees. Once the Board of Trustees approved the recommendation, Alison Bartel, assistant director of Student Activities, took over the organization of Greek Life on campus and contacted the National Panhellenic Council. A committee was set up in order to review the presentations by each of the (26) national sororities and to vote on which ones were best fit for the University of Richmond. Although there are many who are in favor of establishing sororities on campus, others, like history professor Martin J. Ryle, believe that they will turn out to be exactly like fraternities in that they may be exclusive and harmful to the student social life.
