Clear Up The Misconceptions of The Greek Life Posted on 03-15-2007
PryncezzIsBlessed07

Im from Cali where there are no HBCUs. So, I dont really know all that much about Sorors and Frats. However, at least 5 of my friends including me will be attending college in the fall and we want to know whats the deal.Some of them are thinking about pledging.I mean from TV I get mixed messages. Like I see the sisterhood and brotherhood as a positive for blacks and it can bring us closer. Then we I be seeing all the hazing and disrespecting and what not I dont know what to think. So, basically what are the good Soror and Frats groups out there and what they stand for? Will my college life be better if I try to join sorority?Should I date frat? Help me because Im in the dark. Bring me to the light. P.S. Not sure if it makes a difference but my friends are going to Clark and Im going to Southern University Baton Rouge so are the sororities any different because they're different schools or what?

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...damn homie its called research and im not even in a BGLO but u kinda came on here and embarassed your self i think u should read prospect and protocol first and do your reserach abroad in other sources. Do not join a sorror because it seems like the hot thing to do its more than a "social organization" its a union, a sisterhood, a lifelong bond so dont go in blinded by what your friends say and others say do the diggin for ur self because no one can bring you to the light

Pinkz-Hold that thought pink! I didnt say like damn im just soror clueless! I just wanna know what the fuss is about. By the way the name aint lil girl its Tamisha. Aint nothing little aroung besides yo frame of a mind. The only dumb question is the one you dont ask. Jamaican Shawty- Trust me Im far from a follower so I would never do it just because my friends doing it that aint me. I follow the beat to my own drum. And Im not embarrassed I just simply didnt know that much so I asked. I was told Charles Drew was a community college not that that would me it wouldnt count as HBCU.I didnt mean the light like let me join a sorority I meant like what are the all about. I mean theres so many different ones I just wondered why? Im not embarrassed for seeking knowledge.Especially, about my people at that.

Actually, you should be more worried about yourself than your friends. Because it wasn't your friends you put on blast...it was yourself. By stating your name, where you are from, and your school of choice, you pretty much blacklisted yourself. In Greek life we follow a lil thing called DISCRETION. If you haven't noticed, Greeks haven't responded to your post or acknowledged any of your questions. And people who did respond, were trying to show you that you were going about it all wrong. Instead of taking heed to their advice, you chose to be defensive and further dig yourself into a hole. Moral of the story, not only is discretion vital...so is HUMILITY P.S., i'm from Cali as well, so it is definately possible to do research on your own. No one spoon fed me anything before joining
