"You are always wearing your Letters!"

Blockbuster Stores are closing
Blockbuster stores are closing. The company dragged its feet for years with declining sales and their store rental model seen as outdated.

Fraternity and Sorority Life has to consider if we are relevant to the college experience in the 21st century. Are we dragging our feet on change? Do we need to change or do we need to reconnect with our founding purposes and our values? Maybe we don’t need to change, but make sure we can serve our intended purposes and put our Values a first and foremost to ‘pop culture” pressures?

"In psychology, we call this cognitive barrier the illusion of explanatory depth. It means you think you fully understand something that you actually don’t." Do we invest the time really engaging ourselves and our members in quality dialogue? Do we all feel comfortable taking a line from one of our values statements, creeds, principles and putting it into meaning in our action, behaviors, and attitudes in our daily lives?
Are you just imitating and using ‘buzzwords”? Will you take on the difficult concept? Fraternity and Sorority Life is an experience for critical thinking, congruency consideration, and “Living with Purpose”. “Cur non?”

"The price of greatness is responsibility." ~ Winston Churchill

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny”
~Margaret Thatcher

Fired Franklin & Marshall College lacrosse coach
What justifies firing an employee/coach in a hazing situation? Franklin & Marshall fired their women’s lacrosse coach quickly, other schools stand behind coaches and other personnel. What do you think?
