U of Iowa Greeks celebrate arrest rates that are 'just average'3/2/2013
What better occasion to roll out a keg and throw back a few? After semesters of hard work, the University of Iowa sororities and fraternities have finally lowered their arrest rate from twice that of their peers to just plain average. AVERAGE! But what could have caused this change in behavior? The school, in its infinite genius, simply threatened the thing that the Greek system holds most dear: the Greek system. Starting in November 2011, each chapter was required to maintain arrest rates equal to or less than their non-Greek peers, or face severe sanctions. Now that they’ve reached their goal, both parties are happy — the university, because they won, and the Greeks, because they don’t have to cancel any more parties because too many people are in jail.
