With so many cases of hazing and deaths from binge drinking, should sororities and fraternities be banned from colleges and universities?

  • Yes, fraterrnities/sororitites should be banned in schools.

    Such organization should be banned because the hazing is way too harmful to the society. Many say that it is for the social interaction of a person, meeting people, and making friends. But can't you do all these things without joining a fraternity/sorority? There's no need to join a frat/sorority so that you can do all these things. Most people today join frats just to make them sound fierce and famous.

  • It is better if they conduct their business and club initiations off-campus, so serious students can focus without it.

    These sorority and fraternity organizations should not be condoned by the colleges and universities. They should hold their activities off-campus, and be subject to any laws held in the community. Students not accepted into the fraternities and sororities should have an opportunity to exist, without exposure to their activities.

  • Yes, sororities and fraternities should be banned from colleges and university, because they are harmful to students.

    Sororities and fraternities should be banned from colleges and universities, because they are harmful to student health, both mentally and physically. There are plenty of other organizations and clubs on campuses students can join that do not focus on hazing, popularity and alcohol for fun. Fraternities and sororities are nothing more than a buying of one's friends.

  • No,sororities and fraternaties should not be banned from colleges and universities.

    Despite the increased number of deaths from binge drinking,sororities and fraternaties should continue to be allowed on campus.They allow students to build lifelong networks that would not ordinarily be possible outside the organization.They can also act as a control agent and actually control drinking by their members and other associated people.

  • Not all fraternities or sororities haze.

    The actions of a few fraternities and sororities should not affect the others. The national headquarters of the larger fraternities and sororities will pull an individual chapters' charter if there is even an allegation of hazing with alcohol. You can also just quit pledging a Greek organization if you feel you are being hazed, and report them to the school and to their national headquarters. Everything is entirely up to the pledge if they continue with activities, and it is up to the pledge to report hazing when it happens. National headquarters of Greek organizations hate bad PR, and will pull an offending chapters' charter to save face.

  • Sororities and fraternities shouldn't be banned from colleges and universities, but instead be more heavily regulated as if we were going to correct the deviant situation.

    Sororities and fraternities have a history of huge parties and deviant young lifestyles, and combining that with hazing and binge drinking deaths, it leaves an unsettling feeling in one's stomach. These things should absolutely cease. One must realize that even without fraternities and sororities, these bad things will continue on campuses without different regulations and statutes. Therefore, the entities themselves are not the problem but only part of the existing fuel. Eliminating them will not solve the problem, but it might make it worse. Therefore heavier regulations should be in place.

  • Fraternities and sororities are beneficial for many students, so banning them would be unwise.

    Fraternities and sororities have a long tradition on college campuses and have benefited many students during this time. While it is true that there has been unfortunate incidents because of hazing, this represents a very small proportion of fraternities and the students initiated into them. Binge drinking is also a concern, but this a concern among all youth, not just frat members.

  • Colleges and universities should not be banned from college campuses, because they provide a benefit to the community.

    Fraternities and sororities, while associated with hazing, provide a much needed social outlet for many students. They allow many different men and women to come together and enjoy time at college. Additionally, they provide service to their community. Many campuses require that these institutions perform so many hours of community service a year.

  • Sororities and fraternities should not be banned from colleges, because they do provide some good.

    Even though there have been cases of hazing and deaths from binge drinking, this should not be a reason to ban sororities and fraternities from colleges and universities, because this problem will exist, no matter what. Plus, these organizations also do a lot of good, like making others feel accepted and, not to mention, various types of volunteer work, as well.

  • No, that's a ridiculous idea, because it would not keep students from drinking.

    Banning sororities and fraternities from colleges and universities is not going to stop the problems of binge drinking. They would just move the places they live to off-campus housing. Moving them does not solve the problem. Basically, the only way to solve the problem would be to start implementing strict rules and regulations that involve expelling students, and sending those students who show signs of alcohol abuse to alcohol counseling, or to hold AA or NA classes which would be mandatory to stay in school.

  • Sororities and fraternities should not be banned, because they provide a social interaction that students desire.

    Sororities and Fraternities provide a social interaction that college students thrive for. They should not be banned. As a happy medium, universities need to adopt tough policies instead. If it is known that if a certain line is crossed, you will be kicked out, no questions asked, then that may help. Universities should consider banning alcohol from university property and the houses, instead of the sororities themselves. Alcohol is not the key to a successful party.

  • There are thousands of sororities and fraternities, and not all of them should be punished, because this is not happening everywhere.

    I agree that this is a problem, but banning sororities and fraternities from schools will not fix the problem. College students drink, and even without these organizations, they will find a way to do so. The hazing is a part of college and will continue, regardless of the rules put in place. To punish the thousands of organizations as a whole is wrong. The rules should focus on the schools with the problems, and penalize the offenders severely.

  • Sororities and fraternities have been a part of college life for many generations and I do not believe that they should be totally banned from campuses.

    I myself was a member of a sorority when I was in college. There was no hazing and no binge drinking involved. We were a close group of friends who did some good things such as staging events to raise money for charity. I am totally against binge drinking and hazing. I believe that colleges and universities should have rules governing these organizations. The first time any sorority violates rules concerning drinking and hazing, they should immediately be thrown off campus.
