“Toxicity of Fraternity Culture”

The Progressive Student Organization (PSO), which unites members of various progressive groups at UT, hosted the open panel discussion May 2015, discussing fraternities “Toxicity of Fraternity Culture”. Ana Hernandez, Latin American studies senior and member of PSO, said the discussion aimed to provide a safe space to talk about sensitive topics, including racism and rape, and give a voice to marginalized groups, such as women and minorities.

“We find areas to unite beyond our specific political lines and causes that we fight for on and off campus,” PSO member Kyle Joseph said.

The discussion mentioned highly publicized incidents, including the Fiji fraternity “border patrol” party at UT as well as the racist chant at the recently shut down chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at Oklahoma University.[4]
