Building Community Without Greek Life

December 01, 2017

Alan C. Price, President, Earlham College writes: Earlham College — where I am president and also a proud member of the Class of 1988 — has never had fraternities or sororities. This is a purposeful choice, but not always a popular one. Some have argued or advised that adding Greek life would add new energy to our campus or help us compete with peer institutions. Throughout our 170-year history, we have chosen to follow another path to helping students form lasting friendships and affinities. We aspire to be one community, embracing the incredible diversity that Earlhamites bring to the College, but keeping our focus on the values we share, not the things that separate us from one another.
