4. Fraternities and Sororities are not for everybody. Is there hazing? Yeah. Is it fun? Not always. Is it a valuable learning experience which you will find rewarding? It depends what kind of person you are. I am not in a fraternity, although some of my close friends are and they don't judge me or treat me any differently for not being in the fraternity. Fraternities and sororities are also two very distinctly different animals. I know at my school, no matter what a fraternity does as part of it's pledge process, they often never belittle you or make you feel not wanted. For the most part, it's physical stuff that puts physical stress on you. Sororities though...a lot of it is mind games because girls tend to be more emotional. I'm sure you will know if it is for you or not right away, but don't be scared to listen to any info students give you on it and don't be afraid to go to the Greek Life meetings every school holds in the first few weeks.
Well put- I was greek in college and loved it. Still have great bonds with all the BROs and it is a great reason to go back and visit. Most of my close friends now were greek as well. However, if I was a female, there would've been no way I would have put up with the sorority crap. They haze way worse than fraternities in my opinion.
