Fraternities and sororities are an increasingly controversial part of the college experience at many American universities. On Monday, Cornell University suspended all parties and social events hosted by fraternities after campus police said one student reported a sexual assault and another four reported their drinks were allegedly drugged. Still, some parents urge their children to go Greek, saying that the system is a jovial breeding ground for life-long friendships and an influential career network. Others hope their kids avoid it because of the increased risk of alcohol abuse and sexual assault.
