One of the leaders of the Emerging Leaders Conference and Interfraternity Council (IFC) advisor, Bridget Conaway, criticized Greek Life’s contribution to the community off-campus.

“Conaway started out the final presentation by asking, ‘If we take HuskyTHON out of the equation, how much do you think Greek life contributes to the community?’,”Jackie Duran, an Alpha Omicron Pi sister who attended this conference, said. Discounting the philanthropic efforts put into HuskyTHON by the Greek community induces a sense of discouragement among its members rather than providing them with tools to run their organizations.
