Curious to see how TFM the Carolinas are.

Paying for friends isn't my thing. I don't live in Carolina though so obviously people will have differing points of view than I do.

I don't think this view is huddle specific but imo, there are people who were in a Frat, then everyone else who are haters. Lol, just kidding. I enjoyed Frat life, it had its perks about it, I am sure if I didn't join a Frat, I would have been just fine. Being active in it, taught me some intangibles like leadership, recruiting, negotiations, comrodery. And there were other perks like sorority girls, formals, mountain weekends, Greek week events, competitions, having your own house on campus to party in.

I am glad I got to experience that life, it really did help me mature and grow as a man. My Frat was not your typical cookie cutter bunch of douchebags, which I think made my experience different than most.

Easier access to poon is the best thing about frats. Despite what every person who has been in one will tell you.

Some are excellent. Some are a pure clishe

I was in Sigma Phi Epsilon at UNCW and enjoyed my time there... we had a very diverse group of guys and I still keep in touch with a lot of them. Some of my current best friends are old frat bros.

I think we had a thread on this a while back. Everyone was pretty much half and half.

It goes both ways. Youve got the frattastic ones, the douche ones, both mixed together, more laid back ones, etc.

Where I went to college it was about 85% greek life. I wasn't in a sorority but all my friends were greek. I enjoyed chillin with guys from a couple frats and some of them are still my best friends today.

Some of the other fraternities were just horrible though.

Who has parties with no alcohol? Ridiculous

i didn't pledge a single one, but kinda wish i had. i did go to parties thrown by them almost every weekend, and routinely met poon at them. one can only imagine what it would have been like if i had been a brother and went to the mixers with the hot sorostitutes.

Fraternity member and President for a year. We didn't take ourselves to seriously.

15 of us are meeting for a weekend in September so we definitely still keep in touch.

I was in one in college......many of my best friends back then remain so today. Good thing overall imo.

Brother and VP for undergrad.

Joined a professional one in grad school.

Excellent for networking, meeting people, and socializing.
Both did solid philanthropy work too.

No complaints from me.

Anyone that automatically has an opinion on all fraternities at every school should really question his or her willingness to generalize people, and one has to wonder if they do that sort of thing with other types of people.

Depends on the quality of the frat.

So peoples experience of fraternities vary. I almost was initiated into one, but I saw the writing on the wall and saw that it was a sinking ship, so me and my pledge brothers decided against joining, and we are still happy with the decision today.

I think the best frats are ones who dont take themselves too seriously, but at the same time they value their friendships inside the fraternity more than the actual fraternity. And, they have thriving friendships with people outside of that group.
