Have you heard the news? Southern Illinois University Edwardsville has a new fraternity making it's way on campus, and there are many reasons the girls in Edwardsville are obsessing about Delta Chi.

1. Expansion of Greek Life Means More Involvement

With another fraternity on campus, there will be more mixers, more events, and more fun. You know what they say: Bigger is Better.

2. Fraternities Teach Men To Act As Gentleman

People are always going to dis fraternities and sororities no matter what the situation is. Greek life holds students to higher standards. Another fraternity means one more organization to help mold students into better versions of themselves.

3. Ashton Kutcher is a Delta Chi

Wouldn't you want to meet Ashton Kutcher's brother if you could?

4. Dan

You thought Alex from Target was a big deal? Here at SIUe, we prefer Dan for Delta Chi.

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

Way To Go Phi Kappa Tau, Just Perpetuating The Stereotype That ECU Is Nothing But A Party School

The Xanax fraternity four is setting the bar high
878

It seems that fraternities are becoming an endangered species on ECU's campus. Over the last few months, a lot of frat's have either been shut down or suspended. Phi Kappa Tau was added to this list last week when 4 arrests were made in a raid where over 2,500 Xanax bars were seized (YIKES) along with two shotguns, and it was said that marijuana was also being sold from their house.

Of course, the word got out fast and caused a buzz amongst students. One ECU student took to Twitter to call out one of the guys who was arrested because he just so happens to be in the same group as him in one of his classes and apparently they had a presentation due the next day. Talk about bad timing.

The tweet went viral with over 153k retweets and 596k likes. Leave it to ECU to make light of a bad situation. Whoever @iam_spiffy has overshadowed the actual news story with how much traction his tweet got, which is really a testament to how prevalent Twitter is to our generation and how it can make literally anything funny.

While it is unfortunate for the other fraternity members, I don't know if there is any excuse even the sliest of college students could come up with to explain why in the world there were 2,500 Xanax bars. Way to go Phi Kappa Tau, just perpetuating the stereotype that ECU is nothing but a party school even more! *Rolls eyes*

Just to clarify, not all fraternities and sororities at ECU (and in general) are like this one. A lot of them focus on networking and philanthropy as opposed to becoming "street pharmacists." Hopefully, other frats on campus will learn from this one's mistakes, but if not let's only hope that someone else will have a funny response to it.

Here you can read more about the details of these arrests.
