photo Admissions proposal to diversify UA campus

When the University of Michigan entered the national spotlight last year for its policy on the role of race in admissions, UA President Pete Likins said he would stay out of the debate.

Now, shortly after filing a legal brief opposing an alternative to Michigan's policy, he says he can't avoid the discussion.

More than 300 members of the UA greek community focused their attention on hazing and alcohol abuse prevention last night, as they gathered to hear Risk Management and hazing specialist Dr. Ron Binder speak at the New Member Symposium.

"It is a wonderful thing: getting it out in the open. People think it hurts, but it helps," said Jake Joyce, president of Sigma Nu fraternity.

With events such as bid nights, initiations, big brother and big sister nights, formals, mixers and 21st birthday celebrations, the risks associated with alcohol abuse and hazing in the greek system are high, Binder said. [Read article]
