While fraternities and sororities are a slice of college life, I do think these systems promote elitism and they are notorious for wild parties with alcohol and who knows what else. They are also well known for hazing (often brutally) new wannabe members. Academia is often very intolerable of "non-sense" so it's rather surprisingly how these houses have been a staple for virtually every major college campus for many generations. I don't really care either way if they stay or go, but they certainly need a lot of reforms.
Should frat houses be shut down?
