State Of State Hosting ‘Critical Conversation’ On Greek Life At Penn State
Every year, State of State hosts a conference featuring a slew of speakers and community leaders to discuss both the present and the future of Penn State. Though this conference typically takes place in February, the organization will be hosting an open panel discussion about Greek life at Penn State tomorrow evening.
The conversation will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. and will ask the question, “What is the impact of Greek life on the Penn State community?” The critical conversation will discuss how Greek life relates to sexual assault safety, community relations, and borough involvement. The event will also feature speaker Brad Simmons, the Interfraternity Council’s VP for Community Outreach, who will discuss the relationship that fraternities have with their State College neighborhoods. A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
The Greek communities both at Penn State and around the country have been under the microscope lately, and the university is taking steps to investigate and combat the problem. Either way, it is promising to see the student community taking the initiative to open up discussion on the topic.
The panel conversation will take place in 117 Henderson and all are welcome to attend.
