Harvard’s War on Elite Fraternities

Page 3 of 3

The membership of the final clubs being mostly secret, no one knows exactly who the members are. Ironically, Harvard’s continued battle with the final clubs has only made them even more exclusive.

The clubs are cracking down on guest lists and letting fewer outsiders in. “Everyone’s terrified of pictures and lawsuits, of a student getting too drunk at the club”, said a member. “Harvard’s own actions discourage first-generation and less-well-off students from venturing into new territory", for fear of being expelled. “Conversely, let’s say you’re a scion of the 1 percent of Harvard and there’s a family business to go to or there’s a lot of social capital to fall back on... You’ll size up the risk and you’ll take it.”

Several national fraternities and sororities sued Harvard University in December 2018 over its rule that discourages students from joining single-gender social clubs, arguing that the school’s policy discriminates against students based on their sex and spreads negative stereotypes about students who join all-male or all-female organizations.
