Banning fraternities isn’t the solution to Swarthmore College’s problem

Swarthmore’s banning of fraternities and sororities may calm current unrest but falls short of truly dealing with campus-wide cultural challenges. Instead of effectively addressing the unacceptable actions of a few past students, this short-sighted decision robs future students of the opportunity to freely associate with organizations that promote healthy, lifelong relationships. Millions of fraternity men stand united in support of the rights of college students who seek to form positive, enriching fraternal bonds.
