College fraternity gets religion

 |  NCR Today

Here's one way for a college fraternity to 'get religion' - buy a rectory and church. Looks like an upstanding fraternity at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is in the queue to make such a purchase from the Albany, NY Catholic Diocese. Noel Olsen, the diocesan director of real property, said the diocese did an extensive check into the fraternity's background before deciding to go ahead with the sale.
