friends and their black friends when
they want to go out socially, said
Christopher Mumford, chairman of
Racial Awareness through Campus
Interaction and Learning
"When you think about the social
forum here on weekends, you realize
that black students usually go to
Great Hall, while white students go
to fraternity parties or to Franklin
Street," said Alex Hodges, vice
chairman of RACIAL.
To help integrate the social arenas
at UNC, Mumford formed
RACIAL last fall. The group wants

The Greek system is a classic exam
ple of self-segregation, he said. One
of the main programs on RACIAUs
agenda last year was a Greek Forum

The forum discussed issues such
t as why the Greek system is segre
gated, how it got that way, and how
to bring about changes within the
system, he said.

Another situation that leads to
