Frats / Sororities

Has anyone ever been in one?

I'm rushing Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service frat.

I was a Kappa Delta for three years. Loved it at first great comraderie, fun parties, lolunteering opportunities, help with school, etc. Then they started charging me for missing rush practices ( I was headlining the college's major musical). Somehow, they thought that although I could memorize and sing lead in 24 out of 30 musical numbers but I couldn't learn the part of Lola the Rushee. After two years of arguing fees, I deactivated. If you find a group you click with- go for it. It's a great way to meet people and do good work.

Yep, I am a member of Alpha Sigma Phi. Although I graduated a few years ago, I still volunteer for my national headquarters (I actually worked for them for a year), and a large majority of my friends are guys I have met through the fraternity.

Definately worth it. Service fraternities and sororities have a bit more focus that general greek organizations, which I think is a good think for the most part. However, make sure they include both work and play (and I don't define play as the stupid behavior displayed by many of my fellow greeks).

Local Time: 04:58 AM's not really a fraternity or sorority, but I'm a member of Phi Theta Kappa (the national honor society for 2-year schools).

When I was at a different school, I was friends with a lot of frat guys and a few sorority girls...they were a blast!

Oh. My current honey was a Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike) and continues to be the Alumni Advisor for the chapter at our alma mater. It's been 15 years and he's not sick of frat life. I have to snicker at him for that. However, if he hadn't have come to Palm Springs for the International Pike Convention, I wouldn't be falling in love right now.

The Greek system is HUGE at my school, and I would never in a million years join a sorority!!! (The service and honors frats are fine, though! ) Anyway, I have a friend who used to be in Alpha Phi here, and she has tons of horror stories. My school's system seems to be way worse than most others. I have a very good friend in Sigma Kappa at a different school, and she's having a great time. It really depends on a school, I guess. But man oh man, some of the frats and sororities here are really horrible- the tales I could tell! (And I've heard all them from people who either were in the system or used to be, so they're true.)

I was in a sorority, but I went to a really small college...I think the greek system is vastly different at a small school, as opposed to a big university. A huge percentage of the school was greek, mainly because it was one of the only things to do, not living in a big college town or anything. Anyway, whether you go to a big school or a small one, I think it can be a good for sure. Just try to meet the people in the different organizations, and don't be afraid to quit if it's not what you are looking for. I also think the service one would be good.

Translate please: what does 'rushing' mean? (WE don't have sororities)
