Letter to the Editor | Friday, March 24, 2006

In a recent essay (“Absent at ND, Greek system thrives elsewhere,” March 22) about fraternities, I was mis-cited. The essay claims I criticized Delta Phi Epsilon, a service fraternity. In fact, I criticized Sigma Phi Epsilon, a social fraternity.

As my original essay makes clear, I am not concerned about club and groups that have a professional, religious or service focus, only those that are exclusively social.
