Open Forum on Social Alternatives for Campus Held

Wed., Mar. 9, 1988

An open forum, that discussed new alternatives for social activities on campus, was held on March 9th, 1988 at 7 p.m.  There were students from both Greek and non-Greek organizations present. Most of the debate centered around the dominance of Greek life in the Dickinson community. Some students argued that Greek life was inclusive to all students while others argued that students should explore different options such as DARE or the creation of a co-ed fraternity. There was also a mention of the idea, voiced by freshman women, of colonizing a new sorority on campus. This forum allowed for an open discussion about social life at Dickinson which helped students discuss both the positives and negatives of the social atmosphere on campus.
