Fundamental Message to Fraternity and Sorority Life

The four-day bench trial of three former Cornell University fraternity pledges accused of hazing to death 19-year-old George Desdunes wrapped up Thursday. Judge Judith Rossiter admonished the defendants as she began considering a verdict. “Even college boys who are engaging in what they hope is good fun are subject to the same rules of time and death as anyone else.”

‎”As a fraternity man, I’m always astonished by the misunderstanding of fraternities and sororities’ use of Death or its symbols (bones, coffins, or skulls) by people, both inside and outside of our organizations, and this misunderstanding also is prevalent in our cultural symbols. Frequently, Death and its myriad symbols are associated with evil or with the occult.”

A party theme that isn’t appropriate. A fraternity open to conversations about inclusiveness, cultural learning, and partnership. This is what it means to learn from your mistakes. GREAT story here.
