■ Education instructor
said greeks need to live up
to their expectations.
By Jackie Blair
When students leave Mom and
Dad, they are expected to flourish.
But Don “Dipper” Dipaolo said
each student must first “know thyself?’
Dipaolo, an instructor of education
at the University of Michigan, kicked
off Greek Week with a speech to the
hundreds of greeks that piled into the
Lied Center Monday night
Dipaolo said college students
become so focused on finding jobs,
raising a family and making money that
they foiget what they really want to do
with the rest of their lives.
“We really need to take time to
know thyself,” quoted Dipaolo from an
ancient Greek phrase.
For many students, one of the main
purposes of going to college is figuring
out what they want to do with the rest of
Dipaolo said college is one of the
hardest places to get to know oneself.

Hosokawa will speak about “Who

In 1942, when the nrst group was
released, about 100 of 400 came to

of Asian studies.
The average at most U.S. schools
was just two or three, he said. Wedeman

Don “Dipper” Dipaolo

“You’re supposed to go away from

Dipaolo told the crowd to spend
Greek Week in contemplation - to get
back into their own skin.
“What a greater gift to give our
selves than to get to know yourself,” he
Another major topic he discussed
was how to improve the reputation of
the greek system.
“We have campuses ending the
greek community and building alterna
tive housing for them,” said Dipaolo.
“Why? Because we’re not living up to
what we promised.”
Dipaolo meant that during initia

tion, greeks make promises to live their
lives by certain values and principles.
When they don’t do that, greek sys
tems fail and close.
“Pledge numbers in fraternities
have been dropping,” Dipaolo said. “If
guys were living up to their expecta
tions, then there would be waiting lists.”
He told the crowd to start being
what they said they would be when they
Brooke McCaleb, a freshman ele
mentary education major, agreed.
“I think that what Dipaolo said
about greeks does need to happen, but
with what we have, it won’t,” she said.
