Fraternities, sororities and other "single gender clubs" have come under fire at Harvard University as the issues of sexual assault and alcohol abuse, among others, are forcing colleges to make some hard choices. Harvard has for years been trying to eliminate, or at least monitor so called "finals clubs" which are secretive on campus all-male clubs that have  existed for centuries. School administrators insist that "due to their resistance to change over the decades, they have lapsed into products behind their time." This comes at the same time as another campus group reports that 47% of female seniors report some sort of negative sexual experience with one of these "single gener clubs" (i.e. fraternities or "finals clubs"). 

While proponents of Greek life are obviously opposed to the measure, Harvard appears to be on track to make this official as early as the fall of 2018.
