Davidson should offer fraternities the option to disassociate from their national organizations and convert to a role as a Davidson social group while maintaining their spot on Patterson Court, assuming a role similar to eating houses. With this option, Davidson would gain better control over these organizations while allowing the organizations to functionally continue after disassociating from national organizations, whose partnerships may be more costly than helpful. This way, fraternities have the option to functionally continue without the expenses of partnering with a national organization if the relationship is seen as more burdensome than beneficial.
