Yik Yak Supports the Greek System

The day the faculty vote to abolish the Greek system went public, one of the ways students reacted was via Yik Yak, a mobile application that allows anonymous posting. Users can vote posts “up” or “down”, and the number of votes for a post dictates its position on the application’s interface.

The following is a series of screenshots tracing the progress of posts pertaining to the faculty decision. The posts speak for themselves.
