Penn State President Eric Barron wants the Greek community to take a two-week break from social events

The cancellation of socials follows two months of scrutiny after Beta Theta Pi pledge Timothy Piazza’s death.

In an open letter to Greek life members on Monday, Barron questioned whether the Greek system is coming to an end at Penn State.

A spokesman says the Interfraternity Council chapters plan to use this time to continue their philanthropic efforts, to reflect on the values of the Greek community and to consider any necessary changes that need to be made.
