DePauw's letter to Delta Zeta
The followup to the New York Times story on Delta Zeta's purge last fall of its DePauw chapter (to remove the "un-cute") has begun.
DePauw University has posted on its website the letter addressed to Deborah A. Raziano, national president of Delta Zeta Sorority, from Robert G. Bottoms, president of DePauw. In it, he makes clear his displeasure at the sorority's actions and hints that their future is uncertain at DePauw.
DePauw notes on its website that "Fifty-five faculty members signed the document condemning the actions of DZ national."
Now that the story has hit the national news (the letter is dated 19 February and the story hit print 25 February), it'll continue to be interesting to watch developments.
If you're a Delta Zeta active or alum, I'd hope you'd write your national officers and headquarters staff and let them know what you think of their despicable actions in Greencastle.
And if you're one of the Indiana University DZ members who participated in the sham rush, I'd start hiding from the press. If you're among the six at the DePauw DZ who DIDN'T QUIT in protest, we already know where your ethical standards are.
But, then, this Indianapolis Observer was a GDI.
