But then again KU is way different and I think Vezina would back me up on that...

I have gotten so much out of being a member of ALPHA GAMMA DELTA...Scholarships, leadership experience, other doors have open to be envolved, I have raised tons of money for Juviniel Diabetes and Childrens Miracle Network just to name a few, I have learned things about myself and other people and I have developed friendships with some very important people to me.

I don't judge people who are Greek or Non, hell, Bones was an Independent and stands by it 100% but that hasn't really stopped me from, well whatever...and as strong as he was against Greeks, he still encouraged me to go Greek

so anyways,

Dont be a bunch of DICKS because I will probably be your Boss some day anyways....

Wakebabe, no offense meant, but most of the women that I work with (which is about half of my industry) in insurance and finance weren't in sororities. (The ones that I like the most were, but most weren't). It exactly the opposite of fraternities.

I honestly don't think that sororities provide the same door into busines that fraternities do. Mainly because most business has a legacy of being male run and because of that, there is also a fraternity legacy among most business.

You still love Sigma Chi!

I'm Tau Sigma Delta (Honor Society in Architecture and Allied Arts)

We don't have a "house"/keggers/etc. It's more of an intellectual group. (no offense meant to others)

I'll share my knowledge since I'm attending a large university. I didn't pledge, but alot of my friends from back home did. The frat boys turned into ego-maniacs, and the sorority girls turned into dumpsters for them.

I somehow made alot of friends, and I never went greek. I have nothing against them, except they are funny to watch because they try to hard.

WTF is a "GDI"?

This is the first time I have ever heard the term "Buying friends". I stayed away from fraternities as I pictured them as social groups; I hate people and was happy studying enginerding on my own.

Thats for sure.....Shoulda gone to OSU. lol

I've noticed that girls seem to change alot in sororities. I've known girls in multiple sororities on multiple campuses and probabley 3/4 of them drastically changed within a year or so of joining up.....and not in a good way IMHO

Quite a few of them have come back down to earth since then and the sorority has become a great expereicne for them but it was an interesting road to watch.

The thing about generalizing that stuff is that that attitude change happens to alot of people when they first get into school either GDI or Greek. Its just easier to blame it on an organization like a fraternity or sorority than to realize it's just someone letting loose and being stupid for a few years.
