Summary

Since all institutions are being challenged for relevancy to the modern world, it seemed appropriate to see how fraternities are regarded: in what areas are they held in high esteem? how are they misunderstood? how can they best attract future members? To determine attitudes to the fraternity system, a questionnaire was specially prepared and sent to fraternity and sorority members, men and women in residence halls, and faculty and administration members. Questions were asked about living costs and conditions, academic value, social status, importance to the campus, whether they should be abolished, the use of alcohol, control of student offices, pledging, and morals. The results uncovered areas that should be evaluated by the Interfraternity Council, especially living costs, academic value, and pledge hazing. Fraternity activities in general should be examined to be sure they are in accord with the aims and purposes of the college. This should be done by each house individually, and the opinions and decisions exchanged with fraternities on other campuses. (HH)
