The Post-Pandemic College Experience Needs Greek Life

Brothers & friends – check out this excellent opinion response letter to the editor from Dr. Dawn Wiese, COO of FRMT, Ltd. and former Vice President and Dean of Students at Washington & Lee University.

“Your recent article, “Why Campus Life Fell Apart” (The Chronicle, January 26), examines post-pandemic student engagement as a key to both retention and graduation. Their piece failed to note one of the greatest programs which retains college students generally but especially after Covid-19: fraternity and sorority life.”

“… fraternity membership is presently, on average, greater than pre-pandemic membership levels, some by as much as 10 percent higher, despite university enrollment not yet recovering from its pandemic nadir.”
