Moving beyond Alcohol: A Review of Other Issues Associated with Fraternity Membership with Implications for Practice and Research
Biddix, J. Patrick
Journal of College Student Development, v57 n7 p793-809 Oct 2016
This review of research synthesizes more than a decade of published studies on problems associated with fraternity membership beyond alcohol misuse. Topics include sex-related issues, drug use, hazing, and other issues such as gambling, academic dishonesty, campus civility, and fake identification use. Recommendations suggest the need for a role shift for campus fraternity/sorority professionals and advocate for a renewal of peer education programming specific to fraternities. Findings also call attention to research issues hindering our understanding of fraternity membership and offer suggestions for refining future studies.
