Now that is too hilarious!!!! Yeah, you pretty much summed it up! You have to pick which category you fit in. It isn't about all your credentials it is mainly on some superficial stuff because none of the Greek organizations are doing anything beneficial to society. So you have to base your decision on what category fits you and who you feel you will be cool with on your campus. If you are a superstar chick go with AKA, if you are a loud girl who likes to kick it harder than the fellas and like to smoke a funny cigarette here and there (if you get my drift) go with ZETA, if you are actually a smart individual (which I think you are with the high G.P.A.) and feel you don't fit in the AKA category go with DELTA.
^^^That was a bit bold.^^^ I don't think you can say that the Greeks haven't/aren't doing anything beneficial within society. They've each done things in their respective communities to make a difference, whether you refuse to acknowledge that fact or not. *Getting off of soap box*

Yes, I am bold to say that they aren't beneficial. I'm bold to say that they are only social clubs. Churches are beneficial to society. When you have churches that go into the inner cities and help revive a whole community that is when you make an impact! People like Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates are beneficial to society when they donate billions to help people. They aren't apart of any Greek organization and they are making a bigger impact. So if the Greek organizations really want to be beneficial instead of hosting a bunch of parties, step shows,and other "social" events, they need to take their chapter and national dues and give to local churches or organizations like Feed the Children, who are actually making an impact in this world! I'm just bold to say what people are actually thinking about these Greek orgs and are afraid to say it. Including the ones who are Greek. Hey, lets be real here and not have your head stuck in the clouds. I'm not deceived when it comes to the Greek culture. It is all social. It has it's positives because you meet friends that you will have for a lifetime. So it has it's benefits and it isn't all together negative. You have to look at the pros and cons of anything you join and not just go with the flow and not question things. That will make you a close minded individual.

It's a social aspect no doubt... But just because a group or individual does not donate millions of dollars..doesn't mean that what the group did do isn't beneficial. And it is your subjective opinion on what quantifies beneficial... To have such a closed mind as to say that the "limited" service the greek orgs do is insignificant is a shame...

Ok so ummmmm... All I have to say about the last limited comment made is that you have to realize that its painfully obvious that social events such as step shows and parties are going to get publicized due to the fact people gravitate to entertainment and therefore that is all that is associated with greek fraternities and sorrorites to the public. In contrast when volunteer work and other HELPFUL activities are taken place people dont publicize it as much as they should which is a shame. Therefore for others quick to assume and judge an organization from what they personally are not associated with make erroneous assumptions while at the same time making generalizations of of organizations that entail a vast amount of chapters which would make it very hard to make assumptions anyhow. In any other event I resent the idea of turning this already foolish thread into an irrelevant opinionated based debate on a subject matter where opinion really does not matter. Deuces HEY NELS

Greek Organizations are: 99.9% social and .1% community service. Most of you guys are in High school that are posting in this thread. When you are actually in college, you will come to the realization of what the Greek culture truly is. Don't believe the hype you read on the national websites of these organizations or go on what other people have told you about their college experiences. When you actually experience someone hazing you and devaluing you as an individual, you will come to the realization that the Greek culture isn't all what it appears to be. So don't be deceived into thinking that this stuff is about helping people because it's NOT! As I said before if you want to actually help someone or do community service you don't have to be a part of a Greek organization to do that. So you must come to terms with your motives. Why do you want to be a part of these orgs? Is it because of the social aspect of wanting to be a t-shirt wearer or is it because you have a desire to truly make a difference in this world? If the second part of the question is your desire, then why be a part of a Greek organization? Just a thought.

I've experienced enough with this stuff not to just make assumptions but to state facts. I have been on line with an organization (and I'm not saying any names) that have hazed me and I'm not speaking from what I've heard but from a personal experience. I know what the Greek culture consists of and trust me it isn't about helping mankind and you better believe that! It is amazing that the people in this thread, that is defending this stuff, isn't in college or never have experienced this stuff. People like Cnels who is actually Greek isn't saying a word because he knows that I'm speaking the truth! Even people that are Greek know that this stuff is a big social thing and that these orgs aren't doing a whole lot to help people. I will be glad when people actually quit being in denial about what this stuff truly is!
