Didn’t get a lot in class

So, instead of the usual, we’re gonna keep the conversation going. Here’s some starting points….
What was the context of the report? What was it intended to be?
What are some of the benefits of a strong fraternity and sorority presence on campus?
One of the most hotly debated parts of the CCR was the infamous “removal of Greek life” clause. Is that a legitimate cause for concern?
What would it mean to “lessen” the dominance of Greek life on campus? What would the impact be?
Some posts (I am guilty of this!) largely lumped fraternities and sororities together. How are they different? Are they notably different?
Do we think that legality plays any large role in the decisions of students or administration on campus?
Why is it that people join sororities or fraternities here? Why do people choose not to?
What is the role of non-Greek cocurricular activities on-campus? What should it be?
What impact does Greek life have on alcohol consumption habits of students?
How should we define “hooking up?” Is there a dating scene on-campus?
