Just because a few individuals had bad experiences doesn’t mean anything. Fraternities have been around for decades, and there are plenty of reasons why. I can understand that some find the experience ridiculous, but just as your experience isn’t the same as everyone elses, every frat isn’t a bunch of d-bags.
Maybe it is different out here or for SAE, but I still stay in contact with most of my brothers, was provided with great job opportunities through alumnus when I was looking for employment, and have a network of business connections throughout the country that is supported and updated by our organization.
The experience is going to be different for everyone, and for most it is going to be what you make of it.
Hahah it’s funny you mention SAE, at our campus they are the biggest group of douchebags, collectively.
No what’s funny is that you are ignorant enough to think that members of the same fraternity act the same across the country. I am in no way vouching for or against the members at your university, as I do not know them. At my school SAE was athletes only, and that is the mold of people that I like to surround myself with.
Just as with anything else, you can’t judge across the board from what you have simply seen in one instance. Almost anything you do in life is made up of what you put into it and how you handle it. If your interested in a frat, try it out, stick with it if you like it and leave it if you don’t. There are plenty of good organizations and groups at universities, but the only way your going to find one that you like/enjoy is to actually go out and interact with them. Go find the ones that suit you best.[/quote]
Wow dude, I was hoping “at our campus” would clear any of that up, but I guess it’s too sore of a subject. You misunderstood.
