Pangasinan school official favors frat abolition

By Venus May H. Sarmiento

DAGUPAN CITY (17 September) -- A University official agrees with Senator Miriam Santiago's proposal to abolish fraternities and sororities in schools and universities throughout the country.

Director for External Affairs Art Tangco of the Lyceum Northwestern University (LNU) in the city said in a radio interview that fraternities and sororities have a much better mission and fate in the past than today.

Tangco said that as years passed, initiation rites for a neophyte to enter a frat group are worsening. One such practice is hazing which have claimed several lives among would-be members, he pointed out

"Frat groups today are far different from before," Tangco said "The difference is that they want to let their members suffer so much pain, that's why I am in favor of the abolition of the said groups."

Tangco explained that his stand in favor of the abolition has nothing to do with his connection to the school because according to him, LNU does not authorize the existence of fraternities and sororities.

He added that being the Director for Security, he sees to it that students are closely monitored from 8 am -5 pm while they are inside the school premises. (PIA-Pangasinan) [top]
