While I sympathize with the Verbum Ultimum's general point that students should have accurate representation, I think it is important that Greeks and non-Greeks have equal representation, even though that would not reflect the campus at large. Giving Greek houses that have committed infractions the majority power to discipline other Greek houses that have committed infractions doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
