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.

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

Paying for friends isn't my thing.
Someone didn't get a bid...

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

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

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.

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.
