End fraternities’ sexual assault by ending Greek programs

Thank you for your article concerning the sexual assault at Cal Poly’s Delta Chi frat house. (“Cal Poly frat leader: Delta Chi not ‘affiliated’ with reported sex assault,” April 6).

As a young woman going into my freshman year of college, I do not want to feel like I could be a potential victim of sexual assault.

Fraternity brothers are more likely to rape than other college males, according to a study from 2007. Also, 1 in 5 women are sexually assaulted on campuses. A solution to this problem could be banning fraternities and sororities. I say ban them because, let’s face it, hazing, partying and assaulting have no place in higher education.
