It hasn't been a very good month for the Greek system. On Monday, the University of Virginia suspended its fraternities in the wake of a Rolling Stone investigation into sexual assaults on that campus. Locally, a 20-year-old man was found dead at a UC Berkeley fraternity house after a party there earlier this month. We'll discuss these incidents and look at the role of Greek culture on campus. Is the system to blame, or is it being unfairly targeted for broader societal problems?

Guests:

Caitlin Flanagan, contributing editor to The Atlantic who wrote the cover story on fraternities in the publication's March issue

James Stewart, current vice president and president-elect of external affairs for the Interfraternity Council at UC Berkeley. He is a member of Alpha Tau Omega.

T.J. Sullivan, founding father of his fraternity chapter of Pi Kappa Phi at Indiana University and went on to work for his national fraternity for three years.  Now regularly speaks to more than three million college students in all 50 states.
