The University’s ban on freshman affiliation with fraternities and sororities will take effect Sept. 1, following a decision by President Tilghman to accept the findings of a committee on how to enforce the policy.

“The committee’s recommendations are clear, thoughtful, fair, and comprehensive in identifying prohibited activities and in describing the consequences that students would face for any violation of the policy,” Tilghman said April 30. 

Any freshman who joins a Greek organization will face suspension, as will any Greek member who offers membership to or organizes Greek-sponsored events for freshmen. Electronic solicitation also is barred. A freshman who takes part in any other Greek-sponsored activity may face ­disciplinary probation.
