Wesleyan orders fraternities to become coed

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) -- Wesleyan University in Connecticut on Monday ordered its fraternities with houses on campus to become coeducational within three years, a move it says is not just about bad behavior but also equality.

Wesleyan follows Trinity College in Hartford, which made the transition starting in 2012, citing problems with drinking and drug use in Greek organizations. It also comes less than a month after Wesleyan closed the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house following an accident in which a woman fell from a third-story window.

But school spokeswoman Kate Carlisle said the changes are not a response to any one incident.

@9:39 I am sure that Sigma Pi Phi, Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Phi Beta Sigma and quite a few other BLACK Fraternities would disagree with you. I am sure they would LOVE to EDUCATE your STUPID RACIST self!!!!

No, I'm fine. I got to experience the idiots that are in fraternities for 4 years. 'Black' fraternities are just as awful as 'white' ones. Also, apparently I'm racist...
