TO PAPER OR NOT TO PAPER Posted on 05-19-2004
Soundcheck 1898

We all know hazing is "Illegal" (riiiiiight)... but still occurs anyway regardless of how watchful the eye is on big brother and whatever guidelines they have. However, every once in a while the the opportunity presents itself to some folk to go paper. Some do... some choose to work for theirs. I just want to here from those in any GLO, their feelings about the whole going paper scenario. Right now i'm semi-neutral because now that i'm on the other side I understand the whole not wanting to jeopardize getting your chapter kicked off the yard over somebody who complains plus the fact that this past semester was far from fun and i'm really not the type to want to pass that on to somebody else, however, i still feel people should work for their letters in some kind of way, feel me? What do you think?

The pledge process is not really about working for your letters.. It's to build a bond with those that are in your line and organization..The process has to exist or Frats won't be frats they will be "Social Clubs"

i can say that i feel those who actaually pledge seem to go hard so to speak for their organizations. Those who went paper seem to be more about the social aspects that come with it instead of making the most out of their own programs and activities.

Its kind of self explanatory .. U sign a piece of paper and get a number but no line name .. Why? .. Line names derive from ur personality while ur "online" .. And being that they were never online .. Their bigs never got a chance to see their personality so therefore they get no name .. they get a number simply because ur number goes according to ur height .. They dont perform in the probate .. Because while "online" u compose ur probate and they were never "online" so no probate .. The only people Ive known to go paper are legacys (People whose mother was apart of the organization the daughter is trying to pledge) .. They dont wanna go through with the hardwork so they sign their way in .. Anyone apart of a sorority or fraternity feel free to add .. subtract .. clarify .. or correct me if Im wrong

The only paper folk that i know are legacies... so i'm saying no, but there probably are exceptions (ie: if you have the money). Some frats at PWI's really do have an intake process but when it comes to BGLOs i really suggest opting to work for it, you'll be grateful for it later because the process is one in which you should grow in. You find out what your strengths and weaknesses are and you will be challenged to overcome the latter. Plus, your LBs really do become u're brothers during the process. As for what Choklatpoet, you were right for the most part, however, they get to probate (in the AUC atleast). Usually when the paper situation comes up down here its the majority of the line that is paper outside of a few. Also, thanks Iota for clarifying the working for letters thing, I was throwing that around loosley but I can see how some folk who are interest and outside can get it twisted. I would also like to add that if i had a brother that was paper, but has a genuine love for the fraternity and his brothers, and is an asset then he's alright with me. Regardless if he's paper or not he's still a brother? Anybody other greek share the same sentiment? just curious.

IS IT TRUE THAT MOST GRAD CHAPTERS ARE PAPER?
