Dear Fraternity and Sorority New Members at Gettysburg College:
The policies put in place by the Office of Greek Organizations were implemented to ensure that all the members of our organizations, whether they are new members, pledges, or associates, are guaranteed basic standards of fair treatment. Unfortunately, sometimes these standards are violated and members of our organizations are subject to unfair treatment or unfair living standards as a result. When that treatment occurs, many of them do not know how to put a stop to it, or do not realize that they have a right not to be treated that way.
Every chapter has a different new member program. Most are based on the same values, but reflect subtle differences. One value found in all organizations is the value of brotherhood/sisterhood. This encompasses the idea of bringing together all of our members to face challenges together. Sometimes behavior occurs that is contrary to this value, and the values our chapters were founded upon. To clarify these issues please read carefully your rights as a new member of a Greek Organization.
As a new member of a Greek Organization you have the right...
If you feel that your rights have been violated in any way then you can disclose that information either in person (at the Office of Greek Organizations) or online.
