Today’s edition of The Lafayette contains an article about alumni expectations for President Byerly. “Alums cite athletics, Greek life as concerns” by Michael A. Kowaleski ‘14, reports the results of interviews he conducted with several Lafayette alumni.
Out of seven interviews with key Lafayette alumni, six members cited Greek life, five cited social life, and five cited Lafayette’s commitment to Division I athletics as important aspects for President Byerly to concentrate on during her tenure.
An example of the types of concerns alumni have on Greek life:
“Greek life needs to be a part of the school,” Carolyn Romney ‘08 said. Romney is a former member of the Delta Gamma sorority. “It’s always been, it’s rooted in tradition. The way that that takes form is kind of determined by the future, but I’d like her to preserve the ties to our rich past.”
