SnakeLee: If they didn't network so well, nobody in a frat would be employable
fredbox: Your southern fraternity gives you an alcohol enema? End up on the Internet.Your northeast fraternity gives you an alcohol enema? You could be President.
BoxOfBees: Is this really easier than doing a few shots of 151?
kwame: BoxOfBees: Is this really easier than doing a few shots of 151?My first thought was "How f*cking fast do you need a buzz to do something that stupid?"Interesting part is that all the fraternity presidents were served notice just a little over a week ago by the Dean of Students to reign in the drinking. They, of course, acted like children about it rather than agree it's a problem. It will be interesting to see how she handles this.
Leeds: So they were told to cut out the drinking and they found a different way to put alcohol in their bodies. It's gross and all, but it seems like they were following the advice of the Dean of Students...
fusillade762: SnakeLee: If they didn't network so well, nobody in a frat would be employablePledged a frat my freshman year. Bailed after the first term. Biggest bunch of misogynistic assholes I have ever encountered in my life. No amount of alcohol could have made them tolerable. I'm sure there are plenty of perfectly nice fraternity members, but my experience with them was overwhelmingly negative.
wrenchboy: Alexander Broughton, 20, was dropped off at UT Medical Center around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Knoxville Police said.Can any of you Farkers in the medical explain if this would be a HIPPA violation?
Nabb1: I was never in a fraternity, have never been a fan of fraternities, and tend to have that bias, but even by what friends and family members I have to did go through a fraternity in college, the Pikes have a reputation even among other fraternities for brazenly stupid behavior. They burned down their own house at Tulane. I think it caught fire a number of times before, but the last time burned it to the ground. For all I know, NOFD just let the f*cker burn last time.
Silverstaff: I never joined, or tried to join, a Frat, but my Freshman year of college I saw all I needed to know about them through my roommate.My roommate in the dorms was there to party, not to study. He considered his choice of frat to be a much bigger deal than his choice of major or classes.He rushed most frats at the University, and was able to pledge one. He was so happy. He was gone most of the time to frat events. He'd come back to the dorm room late at night, smashing drunk (he, like me, was 18). He got a college girlfriend to supplement the high school sweetheart he still visited on the weekends. We had some of the same classes, but I started seeing him in class less and less.The breaking point came about 2/3 of the way into the Fall semester. He came from a Catholic family. His little sister's Confirmation was one night. His folks made it clear that if he didn't attend, they wouldn't keep paying for him to go to college. There was some fraternity event that night as well. He explained to them that this was a religious event for his family, and if he didn't go he'd be all but disowned.Their response: You're out of there. Dropped his pledge, kicked him out of the frat. He lost all his new "friends", his new social life was gutted, and his college girlfriend from an allied sorority ratted him out to his HS sweetheart, all for deciding that going to a religious event with his family was more important than a frat party.
JeffreyScott: I suspect the fraternity used the meeting as the excuse to get rid of your roommate because he was an asshole. The reality is no fraternity is going to de-pledge a well-liked person for missing a meeting, especially when the person had a valid family commitment.

You're just not our kind. G'wan, git!"Excuse? What, they don't want to hurt his feelings after all the Jack enemas, sponge cookies, and toilet-water gargling? "Sorry, chum, we'd love to keep you on board but you missed this Critical Fraternal Event so we're going to have to cut you loose."Chickenshiats.
