Is IU’s Greek life the next to go?

LSU, FSU and UMich Greek life were suspended this year

Across the nation, Greek life has been under strict supervision following recent fraternity deaths, hazing and allegations of sexual misconduct.

Yesterday, IFC at the University of Michigan self imposed a ban on all Greek life social events, LSU cancelled their Greek life after the death of Maxwell Gruver of Phi Delta Theta in September, and FSU cancelled their Greek life after the death of Coffee last Friday.

Indiana University has one of the largest Greek life communities in the nation, and in the wake of recent events, students can't help but wonder — is IU next?

The Tab asked students what they think.

Katie Myers, a sophomore in Alpha Xi Delta isn't so sure. "I hope not!" she said. "Hopefully we can be more cautious and smart about how we do things so we don't ruin it for good here."

Spencer Refer, a senior in Pi Kappa Phi doesn't think it will happen. "What!" he said. "No way it happens here, the infastructure of campus relies on it for housing."

While Kelsey Praeger, a senior, says it might be in the cards. "I wouldn't be surprised especially after so many have been kicked off in the past few years," she said.
