Fraternities cultivate new image
NO PLEDGES: Sigma Phi Epsilon is one of several fraternities at the University of Missouri-Columbia that have eliminated pledging. Members say the change reduces the risk of hazing and has helped restore the original ideals of campus Greek life.
BALANCED MEN: The Sig Ep program, known as the "Balanced Man" initiative, includes yoga classes, wine tastings, documentary film screenings and other activities designed to encourage personal growth.
CROWDED MARKETPLACE: Fraternity leaders and campus officials say Greek organizations have to change with the times. Unlike the old days, Greek organizations have plenty of competition from other social clubs for students' time and attention.
