It’s easy for people to hate on Greek life at Vanderbilt, and I’m by no means saying that it doesn’t have its flaws and challenges. However, Greek students do make up 40% of the campus population, and they are collectively trying to do a lot of good around campus and the city. So let’s celebrate the good and keep pushing forward!
