    To join or not to join? That is the question






    I was wondering, since folks here are like that white beard guy up on the mountain that has ultimate wisdom, that u guys can help me out on my dilemna. I am debating weather or not i should join a fraternity. This will improve my social life but not really my grades or more importantly my health. Since there is going to be a lot of partying and drinking. However, i still don't know what to do. So what do you guys think.

    he said white hair........Not grey.

    Dude, that's a personal choice that you will get a debate on. Some believe in it, and some don't. I will tell you this. It ain't gonna hurt ya.

    I think the ultimate decision is yours...

    You know your strength and your own weaknesses...

    But I guess there are different kinda frat houses out there with their own reputation. I wouldn't join one that doesn't fit in with your own personality and budget! Some frat houses party more than others...maybe one that is not such an animal house would be best if you are concerned about your grades..

    goodluck but have fun!

    Key word here is "Social"...that's pretty much what frat life is...an introduction/orientation to the sociopolitical scene. You might form some lasting friendships, do some charity work (if the frat is worth a damn) and you get to walk around saying "Hi I'm Biff with the Beta Data Tomatas"
    However, if the goal here is to pickle your liver prematurely, or there is a chance of bombing all of your courses because your hung over, I'd say NO, DON'T JOIN. It all depends on how reponsible you are (at present), and whether or not you have all of your priorities in order before you join. If you've got your act together, frats are a cool perk. If not, it could ruin you. And believe me, it ain't easy playing catch-up.
    Good luck with your decision, my son................time for my prune juice and geritol.

    I like to look at it this way,

    When your an old man, what memories would you rather have? Parties, friends and a good time or how you stuck to your studies and your diet.
    Not that education isn't VERY important but you only live once, enjoy life, don't just live it.
    Cool

    Thanks for the great advice fellows. Too bad they don't have BB frat houses that instead of serving beer they serve protien shakes I am considering all of your adivce and leaning into joining the frat and responsiblely having fun

    I don't know...I was not in a fraternity, but I had friends that were. I think it depends on the particular fraternity, some party more, etc.

    You can always drop out of it if you don't like it.

    If they are friends of yours and you can get along well then why not?
