tuba/hoop_lilgleek04

yo wassup, dis is kerry aka lil' gleek. I have a dilemma, shawty. I'm going to attend college soon and everyone is hounding me already about what I should pledge. I'm between the kappas and the alphas. My mom's boss has been helping me out after my parents' divorce and he wants me to pledge kappa. :wink: BUT, at the same time, my dad wants me to "continue the legacy" and pledge alpha. Make it so bad, his line literally raised me when i was at my diaper ages. They call me lil' gleek since i'm the son of big gleek(my dad) What should I do?!!! :?

Whatever organization you become involved in you need to be sure thts what you want to do. We can offer you all the advice in the world it has to be where your heart is. Remember you cant do it for daddy or a friend because when your Online its just you and your LB's not daddy or your family friend.

also, to add on to this you should learn a little bit about all the frats. before your decide to pledge so that you know for sure that you are making the right decision, because if you're joining a frat. cuz ur dad did, you're joining for the wrong reason, and since it soulds like ur still in H.S. you should focus on getting into college and doing well, since education should be ur #1 priority not the social aspects of school...so good luck wit whatever you do, and focus a little more on school and worry about pledging when the time comes since that sounds like it's years away.

FOCUS ON MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. BEING A BLACK MAN IN COLLEGE IS SERIOUS. ALTHOUGH I SUPPORT GREEKS, EDUCATION COMES FIRST IN SCHOOL. GOD DID NOT GIVE YOU SPIRITUAL GIFTS SO YOU COULD WASTE THEM!

That's not true at all, you need to just wait until you get to college and see for yourself, because too much tv will wash ya mind away. Not all Kappas are yellow or soft, mess up one of their lines and you will see how soft the Kappas are (that goes for any Sorority or Fraternity). As for the above poster you should not pledge what someone else wants you to pledge. You have to live with it for the rest of "your" life, not your mother, father, neighbor or lil' dog name ****. Of course your father would want you to pledge the same frat as him. But my mother is an AKA and I just cleary did not want to pledge AKA, nothing against them, I just wanted to pledge where my heart was, which was Delta Sigma Theta. So you should do your research on all the fraternities, and choose with your heart, not what other people suggest.

U need to get on campus first .. Cuz every frat is diff on every campus .. they just all share the same name .. U might like the alphas at Hamptons campus .. but u might not feel them on Howards campus .. So u need to get to college first and then worry about that .. besides u wont be pledging freshman year anyway .. and by the way uv already talked too much .. NEVER EVER EVER NEVER tell anyone that u wanna pledge!!

I'm an international student so a little confused, what are Sororities & Fraternities? We don't have them in England!

I can't completely agree with you advice. You are right that some orgs are stronger on some campuses then others. BUT remember that joining a sorority/frat is a life long commitment. Therefore you will only be in that chapter a couple of years but will be a member of that org as a WHOLE for life. Plus if you a dedicated you will go on to join the Grad. Chapter I also add that if you are really interested in the organization and not just the strolls, the steps, and parties, you will make a difference in that chapter. Besides saying oh I'm not joining ABC because they don't get respect on my campus and don't do nothing so intestead I'm going to join XYZ because they get big respect and all the girl blah blah blah... You should have the mentality of I'm going to be an active and productive member (not just a t-shirt wearer) of ABC so that those who follow me will continue the tradition and one day my chapter will be in full force around campus. Do your research :wink:
