Top Five Reasons Not To Go Greek

Top Five Reasons Not To Go Greek

1. Individuality. Have your ever seen one of those inspirational quotes? You know the ones with A. Lot. Of. Periods. And, they end in, “Be Yourself.” Each and every one of those quotes is telling you not to join a frat. Fraternities have zero room for individuality and will probably kick you out at the very mention of the word. Does this fraternity bear your initials, or some random Greek guy’s? Exactly. 

2. Too many friends. Having over 100 close friends can really get hectic. Not only is your phone constantly losing battery due to all the messages you receive, but everywhere you go you see a familiar face. When you are just trying to hang out, your room gets too overcrowded with friends, you become claustrophobic and either throw up or pass out. Then, these devilish acquaintances make fun of you!

3. Sorority girls stink. There is probably nothing on earth more agitating than a female in a sorority. All they want to do is party with you and bring their good looking friends and that is not what college is about. Then, they won’t leave you alone and you inevitably see them at one of the get togethers your God forsaken fraternity decides to throw.

4. Football game memory loss. After you turn 21, if you are a member of a fraternity, for some ridiculous reason you decide it is a good idea to consume alcohol prior to football games. This would be fine in moderation, but these football game days often start close to five hours before kickoff, and by the time the game rolls around these chumps are too intoxicated to even remember the game. Just remember, “Stay sober, no hangover."

5. By not joining one frat, you are joining every frat! Proven fact: frat guys love when guys who aren’t in the frat come to their house to party. Instead of being confined to one house, you have unlimited possibilities to go hang with guys who really respect you for who you are – and not because of some stupid pledging. You will be a man among boys at these parties, and the girls there will love you.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
