Learning Curve: Going GREEK

Greek has been one of my favorite T.V. shows since it premiered on ABC Family a few years ago. As much as I love the show though, there are some questions it brings up about college life & the Greek system.

So, what's the big deal about Greek life and why is it such a focus in our culture in teen movies & T.V. show?

Just as there are horror stories that everyone hears about college life, there are also horror stories about Greek life that sometimes scares people away from even considering joining a fraternity and sorority.

If you've watched any Hollywood film or T.V. show (like Greek) in the last 10-15 years, they paint an unrealistic version of Greek life, one of college students partying, getting drunk, hazing rituals that are insane...the list goes on...

And, yes, Greeks are known for knowing how to throw a pretty good party, that's not all they are about. Most fraternities & sororities have a much bigger purpose, one of brother/sister hood, about making friends that will last a life time, increasing school spirit, and making the community a better place.

If you are considering "Going GREEK", check your schools webite to see what chapters are on campus. They can vary from campus to campus. If you don't know the first thing about the Greek system (like I was) here's a few pretty good websites that I found:

Hopefully these help you make the right choice about becoming "Greek".
