History 303: Research and Writing Seminar in History
This paper will portray how Cal Poly’s Greek life systems as well as the regular student body have influenced the university’s present policies of alcohol and other misconducts. It will examine the history of some fraternities who have received serious punishments due to their actions which resulted in the expulsion and dissolution of their organizations. However, in efforts to maintain stable relationships with Cal Poly and the residents of San Luis Obispo, it is common for fraternities and sororities to participate in local and national philanthropic services in order to maintain stable relationships through philanthropy. Since the 1970s, fraternities as well as Cal Poly have made attempts to create a society which foster a positive impact for its students.
