Push all fra­ter­ni­ties off col­lege cam­puses

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - VOICES & OPINION - Robert S. King, Del­ray Beach

I sup­port Florida State Univer­sity Pres­i­dent John Thrasher’s sus­pen­sion of fra­ter­nity ac­tiv­i­ties due to the re­cent death of a fra­ter­nity pledge.

I was at FSU in the early to mid-1970s. I never un­der­stood the fra­ter­nity con­cept. Col­lege is sup­posed to ex­pose you to all kinds of peo­ple. What is the point of lim­it­ing your­self to one group? I knew sev­eral peo­ple who hated some of the guys in their frats. They serve no pur­pose but to be a guar­an­teed party ev­ery week­end. Why is it that you rarely hear of non-fra­ter­nity mem­bers dy­ing after a night of drink­ing? Get rid of them.
