T h e results of this survey were published with no qualifiers such as how many people responded and h o w many were sent out. What about the question " W h a t changes would you like to see on Hope's c a m p u s ? " How many people made these statements — one. two...hundreds? Did only one person wish for more diversity? W h a t a b o u t the r e s p o n s e that stated "abolish sororities and fraternities"? I would like to know. As for the respondent who staled the opinion about Greek life.

D o you see us in chapel praying t o g e t h e r ? Did y o u see us d u r i n g Greek Week playing together? Women d o lead and Greek w o m e n are a great example of leadership. How can you believe in w o m e n ' s issues enough to subscribe to WIN! yet attack Greek w o m e n calling for their abolishment? W h o e v e r you are. I hope you are prompted to contact me.
