Pro

(1) initiation includes HAZING, which, as we all know many people died.
(2) i do not find any benefits of having fraternities in school.

it only shows that we do not have to establish organizations, such as fraternities in schools. it's just a big mess!!

Con

Fraternities have been part of education system since Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776. While in recent years some fraternities have gone "off track" the majority have been productive institutions established for the betterment of the community and student population as a whole.

Fraternities are philanthropic organizations created for the betterment of the community in which they are established.

Furthermore, Fraternities provide opportunities for like minded people to create close bonds and develop professional relationships that last for years.
