Why Guys Should Join a Fraternity


Why Guys Should Join a Fraternity

There are many stereotypes and negative connotations that go along with “frats.” However, fraternities are more than the stereotypes that you hear. I know, I’m a girl, how would I know?

I am a sweetheart for a fraternity and have gotten to know and love all of the brothers (Shout out to my SigEps!). But guys should really consider joining a fraternity for many different reasons.

1. There are so many opportunities to meet new people.

You have endless and endless amounts of connections. They can help you get jobs, help mentor you and even become your best friends and maybe one day your best man. You can also have connections in many different universities in many different states

2.You have an incredible bond of brotherhood that no one can take away from you.

Each fraternity has different rituals and things that bring them close.

3. You will always have an intramural team for any sport that you could imagine.

This one in itself is an added bonus.

4. You become a better man due to the morals and attitudes of the fraternity that you join.

Every fraternity is great, and all of them are based on different morals that really shape you into the man you become.

5.You get the chance to do many community service projects.

I know you may think this is a negative, but really it is a positive. By doing the community service, you feel better about yourself and you help people out. You also will get many connections within the community.

6.The money from your dues goes to helping many different causes.

Ask about the fraternity’s philanthropies to find out!

7.You learn more about yourself.

When you join any organization, you get to meet new people and express yourself in many different ways. Your brothers will bring out the best in you. And sometimes that part of you, you may not even know yet.

8.You are pushed academically.

I know what you are thinking, “aren’t guys in fraternities too busy partying to do any homework?” Well you would be surprised to know that every fraternity has a GPA that you have to meet to be able to still be in the fraternity. This makes you strive for higher grades and therefore makes you a better student.

9.You have more responsibility.

When you are in a fraternity, you have meetings to go to, events to go to, maybe events to plan, and many different things. This shows you responsibility and gets you ready for your adult life that you will be thrown into as soon as you are done with college.

10. It gets you out there.

Most kids when coming to college have a hard time finding their voice and finding who they really are. And most of them spend all of their time in their dorm rooms sleeping or just staring at the walls. By joining a fraternity, you get to meet tons of people and it makes you get out and do things so you aren’t always just sitting in your room.

These are just SOME of the reasons you should join a fraternity. There are MANY MANY MANY more reasons you should join, or at least talk to a fraternity man about joining. At least give it a try and talk to someone in a fraternity. You never know until you try! You may find your best friends and a great purpose.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
