you will find some you connect with and before you know it you will have your own little empire going.
lead the way and help others and have bold dreams, that will keep you moving.

Even in a big school you can find a party though. Talk to everyone (or at least pretend to listen), be confident, and be positive. You will end up at plenty of fun events.

I miss the Dub. The girls are like the classes. Easy with little effort.
UNC is essentially the opposite, although we still have a lot of attractive girls.

I was not in a frat, but only dated sorority girls, just kinda my "thing".
Couple of rules though:
1. Get out of your room. Most are homesick, bored, scared, loners, as freshmen but you have to get out.
2. Video games will not win you any real friends.
3. Focus on your education, long term that's your best bet.
4. Dedicate at least 25 hours per week to school/studying. Most college kids don't do this.
5. Don't work as a delivery driver, at least work as a server at a restaurant.
6. Join some clubs, with some females in it. Maybe tennis, volleyball, etc....

This past week was spring rush for my college and I was certain that I was going to get a bid from a particular fraternity only to find out that they didn't want me. I know it's not a huge deal, but I really liked them and thought that I'd fit in well with them. I didn't really rush any other fraternities so I ultimately did not receive any bids. I feel pretty down right now and expressing my thoughts here has helped me in the past, so here I am.
Thoughts? Is it even that big of a deal?
If you are close to one of the brothers you could ask him to put your forward again.

As someone about to graduate in May, one of my biggest regrets is not making more friends outside of my roommates/people from my hometown. As simple as it may sound, and as scary as it can be (it is for me), just talk to somebody. Whether it be in class, a club, IM sports, anything, just talk. When I'm on campus, my face is either in my cell phone or laptop, I listen to the lectures/take notes and go home. I regret it like Hell, too. You won't need a frat to fit in or make friends, just step outside of your comfort zone a little bit and see what happens.
