Connecting SAE Hazing Issues at Princeton and Dartmouth

The Daily Princetonian has a long article posted today that connects similar experiences with SAE at Princeton and Dartmouth. The article includes interviews with Andrew Lohse from Dartmouth; John Burford, who story of his time with SAE was covered in an article about Greek Life at Princeton in 2010; and Wes Schaub, Director of Greek Letter Organzations at Dartmouth.

The article has a long discussion about the role of recognition in addressing hazing issues. In these cases, it appears that neither full recognition and support, nor complete distancing of fraternities from the institution, are effective in addressing the culture that support these hazing activities.

The article also touches on concerns about the approach that Sigma Alpha Epsilon is taking on a National level to address a number of issues. These issues are also connected to recent discussions related to SAE establishing a new colony at Columbia.

Note – The Burford article is part one of a five-part feature on Greek Life at Princeton. The series provides some good background on understanding the issues at Princeton.
