So, apparently, UBC’s Kappa Sigma chapter has been shut down. Apparently this is newsworthy for the Ubyssey. I personally never really understood what fraternities/sororities offered back to a university campus. Nor did I ever figure out why the fraternities/sororities were the only clubs on campus allowed to discriminate their membership (I’m not saying other clubs should be allowed to discriminate; I’m saying it’s bizarre that they are allowed to discriminate). And I never understood the “necessary” cloud of secrecy that seemed to always be shrouding the Greek system.
Anyone able to enlighten me?
