IFC spokesman Jon Krasnov
admitted there is some skepticism
about the new program and how it
will affect rush, though he said that
under the new policy fraternity par-
ties are now more controlled and
part of a safer atmosphere.
Some fraternity members are
now worried that the stereotype of
fraternities being insular will be
bolstered by the new social policy,
which prohibits non-Greek students
from entering fraternity or sorority
parties without being on a registered
"It may give the impression to
freshmen that the Greek system is
an organization only open to certain
types of people," saidtJacob Strum-
wasser, a brother of the Sigma Nu
fraternity and a former IFC presi-
"I think it will hurt the rush," Tou-
louse said. He added that because
non-Greek members must register
to get on a party list, freshmen are
at a disadvantage because they do

ing, "Production-wise, (West's tour)
would have been a little too expensive
Over the summer, there appeared
to be a possibility that comedian Jon
Stewart would be coming to cam-
pus; however, BTP Vice President
Andrew Bilinsky said Stewart did
not fit the large-scale profile they
were looking for.
"The reason we wanted it to be a
music production is that it would be
on a much bigger scale than a com-
edy act ... we wanted to do a big
not know people in fraternities to
put them on the list, nor do Greek
members know freshman to add to
the guest list.
"How are you going to recruit
a freshman if you don't have their
name?" Toulouse asked.
Krasnov acknowledged that there
is some grumbling concerning the
new social policy.
"Anytime you have an organiza-
tion whose membership is exclusive
in any way, there .are going to be
skeptics. The Greek community is
open to anyone who wishes to breach
its gates," Krasnov said.
"We're not stopping anyone from
seeking membership into any of our
chapters," he added.
The new social policy is overly-
restrictive because fraternities and
sororitiesrneed a registered guest list
and sober monitors, said Staley, of
Staley said fraternity members
are "all about community" and that
this social policy prevents fraterni-
ties from socially interacting with
the rest of the University commu-
nity, which, he said, intensifies the
"cult-like" stigma of the Greek sys-
Staley added that the new policy
doesn't cut down on illegal activity
at all, and there is no enforcement of
"All of the (fraternities) do their
best to keep anything bad from hap-
pening," Staley said.
"Really, the social policy itself
does not really have an effect on
that. It's too hard. Underage kids
are always going to find ways to get
The new social policy includes
a "bring-your-own-beer" policy,
which is intended to help fraternities
escape liability of providing alcohol.
"We operate under the assump-
tion that if you bring alcohol, you
are the age to consume," Krasnov
Krasnov said the effects of the
new policy on fraternity rush
turnout will not be known until
the official bid day on October 10,
but that he expects good numbers
judging by the Fraternity Forum

done anything in a while," Bilinsky
said. Woll added that students' per-
ceived musical tastes influenced the
groups' decision to bring a hip-hop
"We felt that a lot of students enjoy
this genre of music," Woll said, "And
we want to be able to reach out to as
many students as possible."
Last year, BTP brought big-name
entertainment back to the Univer-
sity with a concert by Ben Folds.
MSA funded Michael Moore's
appearance last September, a big.
draw during the presidential elec-
tion season as well as a bargain
- he offered to speak on campus
for little more than the cost of his
airfare and lodging.
Officials from MSA, UAC and
Hillel led efforts to bring more
events to campus over the summer,
focusing on diverse acts that would
raise political awareness as well as
entertain. Ludacris's appearance at
a meeting of the NAACP, as well
as his performance in the racially
themed film "Crash," brought him
to the forefront as a possible candi-
"It's a little upsetting," said Rebec-
ca Brandt, a student who received the
email, about the fact that the concert
was not yet confirmed. "It seemed
like something fun."
