College boy dilemma time! Oh goody! I can feel you guys just shivering in anticipation of giving yet another misguided soul advice.
Yeah… I don’t know whether or not to rush/join a Fraternity.
Here’s what I have so far:
+Rush week is free booze and strippers.
+Being in a frat gives me automatic friends and a social circle
+Helps me figure out where I’m gonna live next year.
+Greek life is EVERYTHING at Cornell, to the point where the rest of the schools social scene suffers horribly.
+Much easier to meet girls at Frat mixers than in my 800+ person classes.
+Getting to know upperclassmen who can help me with what classes to take/getting alcohol
-I’d have to end my vacation early to get back for rush week.
-My basically only friend up here is NOT planning on joining a frat, though he has talked a lot about transferring.
-Frat parties (as a Freshmen that’s all I go to) suck balls.
-The people I like rarely coincide here with the drugs I like. The decent people are all too decent (no weed) and the the people who ARE alcohol and bud friendly tend to be complete jackasses (stereotypical frat guys).
-My experience with frats so far is negative. I’ve yet to meet one that was both outgoing AND not filled with self entitled douchebags (we have those guys packed into every damn nook and cranny up here).
-They cost money to be in them.
-I despise Halo3… the rumors about it being a frat game are BEYOND true <_<
I tend to like having a group of close friends, something I don’t think I’m not sure if I’m gonna find in a fraternity. I feel like people don’t join to make friends, they join WITH friends =/ .
So, what do you guys think? Anyone have a good/bad experience with fraternity livin’?
