I've learned that if I wanted to talk about some real stuff without feeling that i'm in some kinda of circus I needed to create my own hidden message board just for frat, sisters, and friends and invite folk to join (I bit off of Greek Peeps and used proboards) lol lol nah but really... on some real stuff... I learned that different people have perceptions of what Greek Life is non-greek and greek and that there aren't too many people (especially the uninitiated) who really grasp what it is (just based off of post i've seen... can't say its in stone for most because i never met y'all in person). Also... despite if anyone really wants to admit it, whether you hate it or love it some part of the many people who frequent this forum are intrigued by greek life for whatever reason (this forum pops off just as much as the yard at times). I'm sure many of you have noticed that even if people don't post in here alot of folk lurk to see whats going to be said next and many of those who proclaim to be against it find themselves in here over and over again. I've also seen in many post that many of the NPHC/BGLOS's (particularly the younger members) sometimes struggle to define and identify their purpose in present day within their org and with their org in society. Finally, I've realized being a part of this forum before and after i cross that it's hard/impossible to understand certain things until after you cross and that no matter, the majority of the peoples love for their org is very genuine and in the end can't nobody really judge/question that love and why they pledged except for themselves and those who are part of their respective org... (although i see nothing wrong with RESPECTFULLY calling folk out making sure they are doing what they joined to do and are on their Ps and Qs). y'all might feel differently and i may not have explained things the best way (**** me its 3:30am where i'm at) but this is my 98 Cents.

Something basic...aint nobody gonna tell you sumthing that you can research and find yourself. Oh yea, if you ask dumb questions or questions that have been answered expect for the vultures to eat you up. That amongst a few other things but I dont feel like typing a whole lot.

I learned the ultimate answer to solve Greek problems. Daily 1 hour meditations. They have the solution, just need the drive. Sit and think a bit, think more than short term/long term. Think all encompassing.

I learned, most importantly, that stereotypes are just that -- stereotypes. No matter what the facade is on the yard, there are Alphas, AKAs, Kappas, Omegas, Sigmas, Deltas, Zetas, SGRhos, and Iotas of all shapes, sizes, colors and dispositions. It made me really reevaluate my reasons for joining a GLO and also my ideas about the members. I learned to do my own research...and that sometimes it is better to observe, listen, and learn from others' questions (and mistakes). I've learned that Greek folk are generally cool people...the Greek system doesn't consume their entire life, and just like normal people, they get upset when people ask them dumb questions about membership or don't do their own research. Some folk get mad, but I worked in the admissions office at my school (planning programs, giving tours, calling sprees...support stuff) and I realize how frustrating it can be when people ask simple questions that can be answered via the website/books available.
