    the Question How would banning fraternities and sororities impact the students? Is racism, hazing, and derogatory acts not reason enough for Universities to ban fraternities and sororities? In my opinion, no all fraternities/sororities should not be banned because it is only few that are partaking in such activities. As you know not all organizations have the same morals and standards.

One example is University of Oklahoma has 25 fraternities and 17 sororities however only a few of them have been caught participating in misconduct (www.greekrank.com). One of the few organizations is Sigma Alpha Epsilon…

Firstly fraternities and sororities take up a lot of a student’s time in their weekly activities, leaving the students no time…

A lack of sleep, poor eating habits, and not enough exercise make up a recipe for depression among college students.
