Let’s admit it: There are times when Greek Life suspensions are necessary. They usually come on the heels of a string of alcohol violations or a student’s unfortunate death. It’s tough to argue against it in these cases.
However, when we look at the University of North Florida’s Greek Student Council’s decision to suspend Greek Life indefinitely for “precautionary reasons,” it leaves a lot of questions. Like, “Why the hell would you do that?” and “Are you high?” and “UNF is a school?”
I present the dumbest of reasons to suspend Greek Life.
With the current state of Greek life in both Florida and the nation as a whole, we recognize our community’s room for improvement and would like to take proactive steps to sure the safety and longevity of fraternity and sorority life at the University of North Florida.
We know that our chapters may view this as a punishment, but we assure you that this reformed approach will result in a stronger and safer community.”
So basically the Greek council suspended Greek Life to be cool like all the big kid schools in Florida. What’s next? A campus-wide requirement to eat kale? The slogan will be “We know that our chapters may view this as a punishment, but free-range, grass-fed kale can actually be quite good sometimes!” Yeah…buzz off, Greek council.
We should note that this punishment that totally isn’t a punishment but is totally a punishment wasn’t even handed down by the university. When the media and university are both “Yeah, bro, I don’t know, honestly,” then you know that shit is fucked up.
The locals seem to be taking it well.
Oh, lax. Our brothers from another mother. #SwoopSwag.
