Alabama Greek Construction

In this photo taken Oct. 26, 2013, guests and residents of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity gather on the lawn prior to an NCAA college football game in Tuscaloosa, Ala. New fraternity and sorority houses with white columns, wide balconies and grand foyers line streets around the University of Alabama, and still more of the multimillion-dollar mansions are under construction. Alabama’s Greek-letter social groups have been embroiled in controversy this fall over claims of racism and electioneering in a city school board race, but over the last decade they have undergone a $202 million building boom that’s left the university with what one study determined is the nation’s largest Greek system.
