How Do You Deal With Bad Behavior at U of M Frat Houses? Bring Back the ’60s
Ever since one of the frats at the University of Michigan "tore up" Treetops ski resort in northern Michigan last January, the university has been working toward a "cultural change within Greek life" on campus.
According to USA Today, one of the ideas is a return of "house moms" - live-in housing directors - experienced adults who would be involved in the day to day life of the fraternity members. House moms used to be commonplace in frats, but after the 1970s, housing directors were cut by a lot of frats due to financial concerns. Right now ALL of the sororities on the main Michigan campus have housing directors, but only two of the frats have them.
One of the other issues may be that the frat members on campus are younger and a little wilder due to a lot of the juniors and seniors studying abroad these days.
Gotta say, hate to harsh anybody's good times - but, "house moms" might be a good idea.
And yeah, that's my dad-side talking there. Here's the story.
