In the last five years, Greek systems at Wittenberg and across the country have experienced a decline in participation. Wittenberg’s newest fraternity, Delta Tau Delta, hopes to change that, said junior Dave Harvey, president and one of the fraternity’s founding fathers.
Delta Tau Delta, according to Harvey, wants dedicated males who are willing to step forward and make a positive impact on the Greek community and Wittenberg.
He thinks that in order to combat the waning participation trend, the Greek system must show that it has more to offer to the students and the university.
He also thinks that students are not as likely to put up with the “old school” hazing and intimidation rituals that have stereotypically been linked with Greek life.
So far, the fraternity, which has never colonized on this campus, has attracted about 20 men.
