If An Alien Met a Sorority
Morgan Cochran

I think we can all agree that sororities and fraternities are very popular among college campuses. Whether it is the fun date parties or the family-oriented community, being a part of Greek life is never something uncommon or out of the ordinary.

However, have you ever thought about what Greek life might look like to somebody completely uninformed? Would it all make sense? Probably not. Here's an alien's view on all things sorority, because what we deem to be "normal" may just be far from it.

1) Bid Day = Protest




2) The Hand Sign = Gang Sign




3) Matching Shirts = Baseball Team




4) Chapter Meetings = A Plot to Take Over the World




5) Sorority Houses = Women's Shelter




6) Sorority Squat = Pure Barre Class




7) Tailgates = Farmers Markets




8) "THAT'S MY BIG!!!!" = a fat friend




9) Rush Parties = Speed Dating




10) Initiation = Cult Gathering

Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
