  • They are terrible environments for students

    First of all they are a waste of money for students and secondly they provide an environment for rape, Abuse, And drug overdose. One of my high school teachers told us about his best friend who joined one. That friend slowly distanced himself from everybody else. His fraternity rewarded him with gang banging him and beating him, And finally died of alcohol poisoning due to being forced to drink huge amounts of vodka by them. Do not join these demon clubs

  • China will defeat us

    China does fine without frats, So does Europe. Frats are a byproduct of the 60s, And should be gotten rid of. The old frats were more like supper clubs, But are passe. At this point, Frats are an anachronistic waste of space and time. Also if we lowered the drinking age to 18, Or raised it to 24, Frats would have no reason to exist.

  • Enablers of alcohol abuse and sexual assault

    "Greek" life - fraternities and sororities - pretends to be a group of students who are close friends that study together and perform community service around campus. However, They are really pay-to-play clubs that drink dangerous amounts of alcohol, Collect coursework so you can cheat on tests and essays, And promote an "us versus them" group-think mentality. When I decided to quit the "rush" period, They got mad and vandalized my dorm door. Very immature.

  • It's Destroying our students.

    A student is supposed to learn, Gain knowledge and explore the world. But in fraternities they destroy a students cognitive mind which helps him to rationalize thoughts and ideas which in turn defines who he/she becomes in the future. They need to be immediately stopped in order to promote positive growth of our students and move forward.

  • Stay at home.

    Please just stay at home instead of taking up a serious student's place. Behind the mascarade support for frat's is the truth: An excuse to drink and develop a skewed narcissistic social ego.

    Just stay home and let a serious person take your spot, I can promise you, They will be more dedicated and successful. Just stop being spoiled brats who pay for friends and dip.

  • Ban Fraternities - They have no place in this declining society.

    Fraternities belong to a time when the leading elite men of the Nation would go to university and learn useful things that would help them be better leaders of their people. Once finished, They would go out into the real world as soldiers, Explorers, Advisors to the kings and queens or leaders of industry.

    Since we no longer live in those times, Fraternities must be abolished.

    The modern members of fraternities are the dregs of society. They do not care about their fellow countrymen - only money and promiscuous women. Once they leave university, They commit harm to the nation.

  • Fraternities are conservatives and right wing focused

    Fraternities claim they work to change this world for better, But actually they want to maintain the status quo and maintain the privilege of such people they want to foster. Fraternities are racist and old fashioned, They way of thinking just don't match with diversity, Open mind and cosmo vision.

  • They change people

    Joining one of these organizations can make you throw away the friends that were there before you joined. You pay for your friends and have to pay insane amounts of money to stay in. In some you have to fo events because the "lack of volunteers" or else you get fined. These organizations claim they volunteer, But if you are forcing all your members to participate or else they get fined is not volunteering. Some claim they don't haze, But from the secrecy I beg to differ. If they claim to be good for the community and the college, Then why are they so hated? Because these organizations bring rape, Alcoholism, And even a social hierarchy. There are good members that just get convinced to change their whole lives to fit this status of being a brother/sister. These organizations need to be banned because they brainwash their members and even make them egoistic brats.

  • Frats are the Worst!

    They are a waste of space on college campuses and they cause more harm than good. They act like jackasses so they can look cool but they are not. College campuses should fix the problem or ban them forever. Real adults deserve to go to college more than the Frats

  • Being in a frat makes a person 300% more likely, According to statistics, To commit a rape.

    Rape is far more prevalent in frat life with frat members being 300% more likely to commit a rape. Sorority members also experience an increase in the likely hood of being raped by about 75% and even much higher according to some estimates. Lastly, Frats are notorious hotbeds for misogyny, Racism, And even cheating as many of the frat boys I know routinely copy from their frat brothers

  • A "ban" is unenforceable since it exceeds a college's authority.

    While a University may choose not to recognize a fraternity (or any other organization) or not to allow the private use of campus facilities, It cannot prohibit a fraternity's existence. A 3rd party (the college, In this case) simply has no legal authority to prevent private citizens from associating among themselves on their own property.

  • Fraternities can do great things for individuals and their community

    It's unfortunate the culture at some fraternities are stuck in the past. Many fraternities do wonderful charity work. Over my three years in a fraternity, We raised over $5, 000 for the pediatric center in the nearby city. They original had no lounge or activities for the kids to play in. We stocked it with numerous books, Games, Toys, TV's, And video games and movies. And every Christmas we visited, On Christmas, Every child in the hospital to give them a present. We bought so many toys that the hospital can almost go the entire year giving a toy to every child patient.

    It's also a great social support group and network. If you're struggling with grades or in life there's always someone there to help you. Even after graduation. It's always nice meeting another brother on the street.

    It sucks there are bad apples, But fraternities can be great sources of good.

  • It's The BEST

    It's how you start off your wild time at college. You meet a family away from family. Taking away an opportunity for thousands of students to meet each other is an injustice. The bad part is worth the time and getting to have the time of your life is well worth it.

  • The truth about greek life

    1.The all fraternity and all sorority GPA is always higher than the overall College GPA at any given college. Fraternities and sororities must make certain GPA's to sustain being a member.
    2. All but 2 US presidents since 1825 have been fraternity members
    3. All 11 of the apollo astronauts were greek.
    4. As undergraduates greeks raise approximately 7 million per year for charity
    5. Most houses hold their members to higher standards. i.e. encouraging joining honors society and other groups on campus, having study hours and tutors, taking away privileges like parties to those who don't make grades, encouraging members to volunteer and setting up events to raise money and donating their time.
    6. Most members who have been kicked out of a house have been kicked out because they were inappropriate or didn't make grades. No house wants to be put on probation from one members actions.
    7. Most houses are actually dry (no alcohol)
    8. Greek houses are meant to create life long friendships and a support system to always have your back. That could be while attending college and your going through a tough time or moving to a new state so you join an alumni group to make new connections in an area you don't know.

  • No, colleges should not ban fraternities.

    Fraternities are no different than any other organization, except for the fact that it's a lifelong commitment. Yes, there are hazing incidents but that is just a few bad people that make the whole group look bad. The truth is fraternities build people in to leaders, and are committed to community service and philanthropy. People think that students drink because of fraternities, when actually everyone in college (for the most part) drinks, not just fraternity members.
