Jack Nycz | Penn shouldn’t fund Greek life
In a recently published article in The Daily Pennsylvanian, columnist Isabella Glassman presented her argument for why Penn should cover the costs of vacancies left in Greek life chapter houses due to the implementation of the Second Year Experience Program, which requires all sophomores to live on campus. But my question is this: Why should I care? Don’t get me wrong — Penn’s decision to require second-year students to live on campus is a "blatant cash grab" and has unfairly burdened Greek life, whose members must now scramble to fill rooms traditionally used to house sophomores. But for a school where roughly 75% of students aren’t a part of Greek life, why should our tuition dollars pay the rent for these multi-million dollar party houses?
