Frats play music. There are frats on Locust. Frats on Locust play music. This seemingly benign circumstance has apparently been a source of disturbance to individuals occupying other buildings in the area, specifically between 36th and 38th Streets. Now, a petition has formed with the goal of banning fraternities from playing loud music during business hours.
Scott Reikofski, Director of Office of Student Affairs/Fraternity Sorority Life, sent an e-mail to inform Locust Walk fraternities of the motion, which can be read after the jump. With two clear positions on the issue, we want to hear what you think.
The e-mail from OFSA Director Scott Reikofski:
Just to give you a heads up. A petition is going from the Faculty to Open Expression Committee and others to ban any amplified music and other use of loud speakers during business/class hours. Apparently, recently there have been a number of incidents that the music has been too loud, particularly on Locust Walk between 36th and 38th, but also from other houses that are next to, across from or close to business offices, libraries and classroom buildings. Please be cognizant of the music and noise coming from your houses and keep things low—we don’t need to draw any attention to ourselves or cause any problems!!
