    Mr. Francis, an appropriate comment that is also funny! Mind blowing, indeed that the article is addressed to incoming freshmen, “surviving your FIRST college party” after all the ruckus this spring.

    Apparently underage “indepentdent” drinking is expected, but chartered orgs (a.k.a. Greeks) will be ripped/banned/suspended if the opportunity presents itself to change hearts/minds/culture.

    In the old days (pre-2010) Greeks would be rightfully disciplined if someone were hurt or complained of harassement by their organization.

    But at least the campus can celebrate the achievement of sexual diversity, as per the award this last April to a young man who promoted GLBT awareness on campus, organized Trinity gay pride and transgender participation in San Antonio events. It’s not sexual harrasment if its done with the same sex.

    That’s progress for you.

    Good job Trinitonion! You are always quick to jump down the throats of the Greeks saying that they are the primary contributor to the “horrors of underage drinking” and yet you have no problem coming up with a “how to play drinking games” guide for incoming students. I am proud of the consistent and unbiased approach that is reserved towards the Trinity Greeks. Keep up the good work and responsible journalism!

      Mr. Francis-
      Thank you for your input. The Trinitonian has never made any such claim regarding Greek life at Trinity. In fact, many members of our staff, including the editor-in-chief and managing editor, are active members of Greek organizations. Regardless, the opinions expressed in individual columnists’ columns are not intended to represent those of the staff as a whole. Still, we appreciate your feedback.
