Recently I decided to join a sorority on my campus through COB. It's just not for me. Use the report button on all comments and posts that violate the rules in the sidebar. [–]inkieblot 1 point2 points3 points 5 years ago (0 children). [–]♀cookenuptrouble[S] 8 points9 points10 points 5 years ago (3 children), I'm not your stereotypical sorority girl either, so I'm glad to hear you still had a positive experience. Another thing - officially leaving the sorority caused all the girls who recognized me as a former member to give me death glares or completely ignore me on campus which I didn't expect (but should have). [–]♂Redtube_Guy 4 points5 points6 points 5 years ago (0 children). It did impact my schoolwork, but for the positive -- women often wanted to go to the library together and study, so it can be good motivation. the sisterhood? /r/actuallesbians. But one sorority saw potential in me and gave me a chance, so I accepted their bid. Precisely my point about university. [–]FeatofClay 6 points7 points8 points 5 years ago (1 child).

[–]♀mleftpeel 14 points15 points16 points 5 years ago (1 child). [–]slop_machine 12 points13 points14 points 5 years ago (1 child). Would you consider college a continuation of highschool, and grad school as the place where serious networking and socializing around a common goal takes place? I just didn't understand it and went on what the stereotypes said. I decided to not just do the thing where you become "inactive" - I decided to completely leave the sorority, which was a long and arduous process. I’m interested in rushing and wanting to know about the reputations or focuses of the sororities on campus? I'm just saying it seems to obscure a lot of other work being done. Many of the girls I met at freshman orientation went on to join Greek Life and became some of my best friends so I got an experience of it second hand. I wasn't in a pan-Hellenic sorority, but I did join an organization which used Greek letters, the term sorority, and had big/little/ etc. [–]♂JPLR 8 points9 points10 points 5 years ago (0 children). You meet a lot of people. I'm actually Libertarian, but it's not even relevant to my Greek affiliation. Nope, they are wholly founded on truth. Its just the linda thing where from the outside looking in you camt really under stand it but from the inside lookin our you cant explain it. They are organizations that are meant to promote social, intellectual, and moral growth. I've always disliked it and it's his exact response that I use to explain it to people. No worries its different for everyone. Some people will do absolutely anything to avoid exclusion. I've lived in the North almost all my life (only spent a couple years in the South when I was little), so I know almost nothing about all this stuff. Millions of young women will go on to join a sorority during their time in college, but not all of the organizations are created equal; even those with sterling reputations can get mired in scandal. The exec boards really aren't that scary... almost every organization/club on campus has a president, or an events chair, etc. [–]♀cookenuptrouble[S] 12 points13 points14 points 5 years ago (1 child). It's just true. I will say that a lot of pledging involves "playing" the fraternity pledges. -Whenever I meet someone who was in the same sorority we have an instant connection. The largest Greek letter sorority for black women, Delta Sigma Theta was founded in 1913 at Howard University—only two months later, the founding sisters participated in … [–]WestCoastBestCoast01 1 point2 points3 points 5 years ago* (0 children). I felt effective until my own organization undermined the very message I was sending. I am a very independent person and I can form my own opinions. Greek life is the perfect way to meet all kinds of new people, especially within your sorority. These are the biggest Indiana University sorority stereotypes that you love to hate and hate to love. The moment someone tells me to take off my clothes, I'd be out of there. I know at my chapter, you can control how much time you put back in. Fines help incentivize not only attendance and participation, but also to avoid freeloaders who don't contribute to the org. I would not join a sorority again, imo. [–][deleted] 11 points12 points13 points 5 years ago (7 children). So 8 months of rent, food, alcohol, and everything else for $5,000? While in some fields this may hold true to getting your foot in the door (legal, law, and medicine/medical), other fields, the most it will get you is a high-five. If you can remember compliance laws, know the formulas, can fill out forms and display the correct format for reporting, you are gold. Looking back, I wish I had just gone into inactive status so I could keep ties with the girls I liked. Cool. Just saying, "I need to study Sunday for my test, so I shouldn't have to go!" Each chapter may have had individual GPA requirements and scholarship programs, but as a whole it was one of the four aspects of my sorority. I will say that a lot of pledging involves "playing" the fraternity pledges. [–]♂bacondev 1 point2 points3 points 5 years ago (0 children), I find my engineering fraternity dues of $485 to be a happy medium. I dislike this generalization. In my sorority experience, it wasn't a hard rule. Some major points: --The good news about dues is that almost every sorority will have a payment plan, and many sororities have scholarships. Meetings were on Monday evenings, and any class/tutoring was excused. [–]♀cookenuptrouble[S] 21 points22 points23 points 5 years ago (1 child). It all goes towards philanthropic events, the formal, other functions (basically parties or cookouts or sporting events with other greek houses) and those kinds of things. Perhaps because, in the opinion of many people, college isn't just (or arguably primarily, depending on your major) about the education. On the one hand I worry that I will be missing out on a house I unexpectedly fall in love with and getting to tour each sorority house seems like fun. [–]♀minnie1008897 4 points5 points6 points 5 years ago (0 children). We’re not all racist. No surveys. There can still be sleep or food deprivation, but I have mostly heard of degradation of the pledges. The organized structure can add or remove stress from your life. [–]♀not_rachel 55 points56 points57 points 5 years ago (42 children). Take themselves more seriously than Zeta Psi. Scavenger Hunts or forced study hours can be considered hazing. I don't know about you, but I have personally found that all the hyped up stereotypes about Greek life (especially sororities) that we see in movies, on TV and all over social media are completely and totally true. And I'm so deeply sorry you and these two young women were raped. [–]bonscouter 36 points37 points38 points 5 years ago (0 children). We had it easier than the guys in the ‘80s did, and you’d have it easier than we did. enough. [–]dorothy_zbornak_esq 10 points11 points12 points 5 years ago (7 children), Absolutely. [–]Smokinacesfan55 26 points27 points28 points 5 years ago (5 children). Recruitment. --A lot of the restrictions they put on you have to do with keeping a good reputation/image and being responsible. It's as much about learning how to deal with people, authority, negotiation, deadlines, relationships, prioritizing, and how to balance your life as it is about a strict education that leads to a degree. /r/thinlydisguisedrants /r/TwoXSex Good luck! No personal advice. It's main goal is to further the cause of music in America. I pressed charges and the fraternity was kicked off campus. Otherwise, you can probably find your lifelong friends at college, granted with a little more effort. They went out of their way to help me. A strong support system is really what I want out of Greek life because I am so far from home. Crikey. I am actually a Northern girl (who has been living in the South for quite some time), so I was used to some things, but less in the ways of the "Ole South". Get an ad-free experience with special benefits, and directly support Reddit. That is so fucked up. Missing mandatory events, in general. I keep getting ask about a code. There weren't fines for missing chapter events, but if you missed too many of the necessary ones you didn't get to go to the fun ones. Comparable to a PAC 12 fraternity. Hazing happens, but I wouldn’t say you need to be worried about it. [–][deleted] 3 points4 points5 points 5 years ago (0 children). I was able to acquire friends, a social life, and a sense of purpose when I transferred to a new college. We had mandatory study hours based off your gpa, the higher you had the fewer required hours. Don't talk to ~90% of the people, and wouldn't trust them with anything. I eventually landed in a sorority that seemed like it would be a good fit. Also don't really get anything from networking. You can't really think of being in a sorority as "free time." Recruitment was a tough process and I was cut from most of the houses early on because of being an upperclassman. Really, I had mostly a great experience. Anyone down voting me and saying "it's so much more!" We are a pretty tight group. isn't good enough, you should have started studying Saturday or earlier. I would raise motions in chapter meetings for the president to acknowledge that her choice directly put people into danger and was called in for disciplinary action every week for about 2 months. [–]inkieblot 8 points9 points10 points 5 years ago (47 children). Wow, this got a lot more of a response than I was anticipating. [–][deleted] 1 point2 points3 points 5 years ago (3 children). I am interested for anyone in their 30's to respond on their post sorority life. First time I saw it I thought, "What the hell have the Greeks got to do with anything?! You may end up being ostracized by more than a few former sisters. Post titles must be a descriptive, in depth question and searchable using keywords, or will be removed.

Whether it's someone hiring was a part of your sorority, a sorority sister of yours knows of an internship or job opportunity that would be a food fit for you, or just knowing people as you go out in the world, keeping friendly relationships with the people you know is pretty important. /r/birthcontrol We try to make sure that conversations get more and more meaningful each night, and by the last night each woman had a half-hour, 1-on-1 conversation with a sister that they had bonded with throughout the course of the week. It really depends on the sorority and the chapter. So it varies a lot! It's enraging. It also gave me a great social life in college, living in the house was the best time, always having someone to hang with, talk with, eat with, etc. became 'common sense or etiquette' in the Southern US. Chapter refers to regular meetings of a greek organization. [–]Decker87 26 points27 points28 points 5 years ago (6 children). Not really the social ones, but the recruitment, ritual, sisterhood, or service ones. I'm curious--what sort of rules were there? If you miss a dead line, dont show up to a meeting, fail to communicate with your manager about your attendance, you would suffer consequences just like in a fraternity/sorority. AEPi- I really couldn’t decide whether to put them on top or in the middle, because they’re definitely better thought-of than those lower on the list, so I just settled here. However, a few of my non-greek friends have been expressing a lot of judgement, usually based on negative sorority stereotypes. Nothing else matters. I certainly don't agree with all the reputations and stereotypes out there but here they are: DG has the reputation of being the "rich" and stuck-up sorority. Let me back up a bit and start from the beginning. The line made sense where I said it, but I skipped a couple people by accident. For my sorority, attendance in some events (recruitment, initiation, etc) was dictated in bylaws. They become all your social world, making you as dependent as possible on the sorority, and punish you when you don't bend to the rules, even with economical fines and harassment. Incidents like the DG email or films like LegallyBlonde, they say, simply perpetuate sorority life stereotypes and should, instead, be taken with … True, that was a rule for us too, which I think was reasonable. No graceless generalizations. 2 1 12. How do you form good habits and stick to them? They fine you for not going to events?! Get an ad-free experience with special benefits, and directly support Reddit. But the point is, I was never hazed while pledging and I love my sorority. Having to meet at all ever or learn any information (even the greek alphabet) is considered hazing. Within my (international) sorority, absolutely it was common practice! Focus on scholarship. Strict rules about what I could wear, post on social media etc. *I found that being in the Greek System provided privilege, which has it's added benefits: fun parties, free concert tickets, more free activities, etc. At the end of the day you arent friends. Were jorts and Star Wars the only things that you went your own way on or are you trying not to bring up politics in this post? Well like I said it is different everywhere but I have seen actual investigations and read confessions from pledges (who only ever send them anonymously). What is the hiring supervisor went to a rival school or ABSOLUTELY HATED that frat/sorority? Familiarize yourself with Reddit 101. Of course, sororitys are very different at different schools. If you have any other questions about the rush process, pledging, or fraternity life in general, feel free to PM me or whatever. Same! Edit: A few other things I remember now - unless you can prove extreme circumstances it is required of all sisters to live in the sorority house for a year. Most of my friends are guys and when you put a lot of girls in a room together it tends to go badly. DAE or questions that can be answered with just a yes/no will be removed I met some really great people through mine, but I've also made some superficial friendships that don't mean much to either of us and were simply there for convenience. It wasn't all fun and games- I really enjoyed getting involved with our philanthropic organizations and I will continue to make donations even after I graduate, so it has been a great learning opportunity for me. Yeah, you will probably never get hurt and could have a great experience, but why would you willingly opt in to greek life? Archived. When I go job searching in a new city, my friend just gives me a list of contacts that values her as a personal reference and I'm practically guaranteed a job. I'm graduating in May and no that no matter where I go I'll find a chapter of my organization that will welcome me with open arms. It is a common belief in … If you missed something, it would affect your attendance, and if your attendance got below a certain threshold you'd get fined. You will be told from the moment you decide to rush to not listen to the stereotypes or gossip about the sororities here at Clemson.However, where there’s a rhyme there is a reason and for many clueless freshmen girls it can be a good thing to know a little about the sororities on campus before deciding to become a part of one for the next four years. I couldn’t name a good party they throw. Bonus question I just thought of: If you had to do it all over again, would you still chose your sorority, if any? Being apart of a Greek organization like a sorority is so much more than getting drunk and partying, it's a bond that you have with all the other sororities and fraternities. What did you have to work the hardest for? We’re not all bigots. :/, [–]♀wonderfulmeg 16 points17 points18 points 5 years ago (0 children). For a while, once I got in, it did. It really depends on the sorority and the school. For real? I think the thing for me though is that after I graduated college, I went to graduate school and became much better friends with the people in my program than I ever was with my college friends. Unfortunately, this meant we had zero repercussions against a member who got drunk and broke part of the bus we rented for an event. As an engineer, it ended up being too much after 2 years and dropped, not having made any real, lasting friendships. We also learned correct dining etiquette. I was hazed during my new member process, yes it still happens in some places, the kind of stuff you see in cheesy lifetime movies. Let’s be honest, when you hear the word “fraternity” or “sorority,” the first thing that comes to mind is not a favorable thought. You don't get fined because you have class, tutoring, si sessions, finals. Sorority reviews, ratings, and rankings for University of Virginia - UVA greek life - Greekrank Missing events was totally acceptable, so long as you sent an excuse in 24 hours before the event. There was always something to do if I felt lonely. Sororities just happen to increase the people that you meet and give you leadership opportunities to place on your resume. Add flair! It’s not easy to face stereotypes because they degrade and generalize, trapping you into a mold without giving you a chance to prove otherwise. I only connected with a few girls, who like me were in the minority since we weren't the pretty much typical "sorority girls." I'm from the UK, and every time I see this rule mentioned I think "but ... every day is after last year's Labour Day! Although, nowadays I just don't care and wear whatever the F I want. Posted by 3 years ago. To this day when I see guys from my PC, the things we reminisce about most is the shit we all went through. [–]♀brittanykay 22 points23 points24 points 5 years ago (1 child). [–]nervousnedflanders 10 points11 points12 points 5 years ago (5 children). I just want to acknowledge how much you went through and how greatly I admire the actions you took and the courage and strength you showed. I never got fined, however, because if you had a legitimate excuse, you were given plenty of time to submit it to the executive board for approval. It took place over two weeks and required that we sacrifice a week of winter break. They really aren't. I love my big and my twin and am so grateful to know them, but that's about the only part of being in a sorority that I enjoyed. Is that a common thing among sororities? If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't have changed my sorority, but the year I chose to go through recruitment. There is also a correlation between how tough the pledge experience is and how legit the organization is viewed to be. As long as you send an excuse, you're good. Similar interests/goals I guess? What was the weirdest complement you ever gotten? You don't need a sorority in order to socialize. I don't see myself staying here after graduation. Theta- Again, didn’t take the whole thing too seriously. 200$? My new sisters were very clear that they wanted to get to know us and bring us into the family, not torture or test us. then what's the benefit to having any student organizations at all? Kappa Sig- Very decent dudes. For interns, the company(s) I worked for focused more on getting a referral from a professor (research lab) or what your GPA and strong major focus was; also, where the intern wanted to end up. and join one of thousands of communities. Join a sports team if you want friends. I seriously regret wasting time thinking about who was top tier and who did "best" in recruitment. [–]kovixen 1 point2 points3 points 5 years ago (0 children). Which is a pro unless you lose focus and make being a fun sorority girl a higher priority than being a hardworking student. None of the actives are about to give up their parties because the pledges fucked up the house GPA, so there will likely be some kind of system in place to keep you from failing too hard. Maybe. This is awesome that you’ve taken the time to do this. Also, if they like a kid enough to offer him a bid and he vouches for you, they’ll likely take his word for it. All of them, especially Chi O, tend to take the sorority thing (ritual, rules, etc.) They forced them so sit on a washing machine naked and anything that jiggled they circled with magic marker. They got kicked off campus for obvious reasons. Later, my younger sister joined a sorority and was also raped at a greek life party. That doesn't really fit well with being forced to go to meetings or be forced to pay the price...literally. I tried to get into said party to get these girls out of there. -I was on the Executive Board for several years. At least, that's my theory.

Most of my best friends to this day were pledge brothers. I never would have even considered joining a sorority in high school, but when I got to college (small, liberal arts school in the north), I changed my mind. Is just justifying themselves. That said, sophomore through senior greek enrollment was over 2/3rds of the student body. [–][deleted] 11 points12 points13 points 5 years ago (5 children). When I tell someone that I’m Greek, here a few of the stereotypes I get told. After that I spent a lot of time volunteering and doing outreach about sexual assault. I'm not hip to all the jive lingo, sorry. If your GPA was below requirement, you had to create a plan to improve your grade, and keep up with it the entire semester. She had a line to read from a script where different sisters would read a sentence or two and then another person from a different side of the room would read the next line. For PHA and IFC, there is definitely still hazing but a little different. I really loved having a sense of community on campus. -A built in group of people who will help you no matter what. I had a friend who joined a sorority and her fees were well over $5000. The reputation of DG is that they are classy, supportive of each other, focused on “girl-power,” and heavily involved in campus activities. BLACK GREEK STEREOTYPES Ever wanted the 411 on Black Greeks? 12 would be considered a large pledge class--I can't even wrap my head around the concept of having an active chapter of 150, let alone a pledge class. We shit on the patriarchy while doing our hair and we've all got our little nerdy quirks. [–]♀cookenuptrouble[S] 18 points19 points20 points 5 years ago (7 children). $$$. The biggest knock on their reputation is the combination of the fact that they’re southern, their signature date party (maybe the best of the year and one of the most coveted invitations on campus) is called “Old South,” and that they were founded at a college where Robert E. Lee was the president, leads to people assuming they’re racist. It probably is more intense in a bigger school setting, where you can have a pledge class of like 200 people compared to my pledge class of like 10...I'm not sure I would have rushed if I went to a large school with a huge Greek life, Formal Recruitment would have intimidated the shit out of me. I literally got one of my friends a bid to our fraternity. Throughout my process we legit became brothers and i am my brothers keeper. [–]♀GezzySinger 51 points52 points53 points 5 years ago (5 children). Someone from France here. This organization is one I really connected with and I really like all of the girls in it. Now I have a lot of friends in different houses, so I feel like I know a little bit better what each sorority is all about (though I do know that one sister is not representative of a whole house and to take everything with a grain of salt). We are a bunch of dumb, rich kids … In my third year there was an off campus Halloween camping trip (aka a "Party") and because 7 sisters were going it was labeled a "sisterhood event." Always busy. It all sounds just a bit too businessy to me, and too restrictive. Thank you. Job experience - I held positions within my sorority that totally helped me get a job. [–]Decker87 10 points11 points12 points 5 years ago (0 children), [–]dancingastronaut 10 points11 points12 points 5 years ago (0 children). *Public Relations dictating what I can/can't wear to class. If I remember correctly they used to throw a Luau party every year until a tiki torch ended up burning their house down. I've made lists: *My sorority was large (I'm talking 150+ pledge class), so it was easy to find people I shared common ground with. [–]♀pro_forma_life 17 points18 points19 points 5 years ago* (3 children). No misogyny, misandry, transphobia, ageism, racism, general assholery, invalidation, or otherwise hateful or disrespectful commentary. Girls would talk shit ALL the time. Also, most of my friends were already in the sorority I ended up pledging, so I felt like I already belonged there. You commit as much or little as you want from then on - you've paid your membership and that's the only one-off commitment. It doesn't affect me, my country doesn't have anything quite like that (although I think it is slowly permeating our university culture in some areas, though not to the same extent), so if it worked for you, I'm happy for you. [–]SEC_honey 23 points24 points25 points 5 years ago (0 children). The whole organization is set up like a business. Most likely a rule like you can't wear your letters (because you represent your sorority as a whole in them) to class if you're looking sloppy. Sammy (inactive)- Drugs, crazy people, and more drugs. Standing up to people judging you is awful. Being rewarded by healthy social lessons does not require one to join a sorority.
