The Dark Power of Fraternities

Hosted by  • 

The appeal of fraternity life to college students is no mystery. But there’s an obvious downside to a bunch of unsupervised, mostly underage college students binge drinking at a frat house. Deaths, serious injuries, and sexual assaults have led to countless lawsuits that at one time threatened to destroy Greek life on campuses across the country. Yet they’ve survived (and thrived) because colleges are reluctant to crack down, and fraternities have found a way to protect themselves.
