Readers Poll

How do you feel about Cal Poly suspending all sororities and fraternities?

  • Good riddance. They've caused too much trouble at that school.
  • They should've only suspended frats that actually did something wrong.
  • This is an overreaction. I don't think any of them should be suspended.
  • It doesn't matter. This won't solve Cal Poly's race problems.
