  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Panhellenic Council supports Phi Mu

To the editor of The BG News:

On behalf of the Panhellenic Council at BGSU, we would like to speak in support of our Phi Mu sisters. We feel the article featured in the Friday, Sept. 6, edition of the news was insensitive to the women of the chapter. Sept. 6 was the first day of Formal Recruitment for the Panhellenic Council. It was also the first time the Phi Mu chapter at BGSU was unable to participate in the process. It is important to realize that the women of Phi Mu were and continue to be hurt and disappointed by the decision to suspend their chapter.

The decision to suspend the chapter was made by Phi Mu Headquarters in the best interest of the chapter and was not due to their “personalities.” Further, the quotes regarding why the chapter had been suspended from Holly Grunn, the Panhellenic Council adviser, were written out of context. This, in addition to the investigative nature of the article, led readers to believe that there was the possibility of suspicious activity on top of membership issues. In reality, the chapter was struggling with general chapter operations, which was a result of low membership numbers.

Finally, it is important to realize that the women who were a part of the undergraduate chapter were granted alumnae status and will therefore remain members of Phi Mu Fraternity and students at BGSU. With that, we, as the Panhellenic Council, felt it necessary to bring these concerns to light so we can continue to support these women as members of our Panhellenic sisterhood.

We hope that further understanding and consideration is displayed in future articles.

Casey Swick and Emma Heitmeyer

On behalf of the Panhellenic Council
