Greeks Praise Benefits of Brotherhood, Sisterhood at REDTalks

Over 50 members of various fraternities and sororities spoke out about their personal experiences within the Greek community at a REDTalks Tuesday. The diverse panel of members represented a broad spectrum of Greek voices within Cornell and discussed topics ranging from LGBT life to financial insecurity. REDTalks — similar to the famous TEDTalks — is a Cornell-based program that enables individuals to voice their ideas, transfer knowledge or share personal or professional anecdotes with their peers. Within the Cornellian community, 32 percent of students participate in Greek life, according to College Express. Comprised of over 60 organizations, the population is home to people of varying sexual orientation, race, background, physical ability and financial stability.
