Pledgeship 101

The basics revolving around pledgeship.

The Drunk Pledge

If you really wanna fire-up the brotherhood, shotgun a beer. But we’re not talking about your average Saturday night rager. If your dreams of frat-star status are truly worthy, you’ll get fucked up on a daily basis. As a pledge, there’s no…

The Ideal Pledge

As brothers, we’d all love to have Hooters girls driving us around, serving us dinner and getting hardcore hazed. And in this case, sexually hazed. Well, we can’t all win the lottery now can we? Society has been pretty generous to keep…

Alcoholic Pledgeship

With the transition of high school to college comes the expectation of social survival. Your dorm room gets smaller and smaller by the day, all-the-while your social life dwindles. Once you’ve grown a sack and decided to #2 Rush, your…

Signature Books

When it comes to the Brotherhood, we're all developing our inner-frat-star status with every day that goes by. Yet, unlike the typical #20 GDI, each and every frat star will be famous one day. In preparation for future celebrity status, the…

Fall Pledgeship 101

The honeymoon is over. The bromance that is #2 Rush has come to an end. Reality has set in, much to the dismay of all rushees. No longer does the brotherhood care where you're from, or how much of a #49 Future Frat Star you may be. The…

The Token Fat Pledge

Every pledge class comes in all shapes, ages and sizes. While fall classes are always larger than spring classes (number-wise), there will always be a token chubster in each pledge class. I don’t care if a fraternity has a reputation for…

Rush

The ultimate week of man flirting. Whether you’re a library nerd or a hardcore partier, every college student should experience a week of rush just for the hell of it. If you don’t know what rush is, then you’ve missed out. Usually…

Brothers have bestowed upon their inferior pledges numerous responsibilities, yet none can match that of the Pledge Class Pet. In order to legitimize the overall fraternity, the pledgeship process and new member education as a whole, a…

Cost of Pledgeship

The decision to join a fraternity rivals one of marriage. The options of women, and that of fraternities, are endless. Yet, in the end, only one reigns supreme. The downside? The money, of course. Do I really need to explain what a wife…

Living In The House

If a brotherhood created a bucket-list, this would sit right at the top of it. You're not a true brother, nor have you truly experienced the brotherhood, if you've yet to live in the house. It's the hub of all debauchery, and the home of…

Pledge Master

The Pledge Master serves as the single most important component of fraternal pledgeship. All pledge programs incorporate an exclusive brother who leads each pledge class through their semester-long pledgeship, and eventually into the…

Pledge Socials

The hellish semester of pledgeship isn't all bad. The Brotherhood needs to keep pledges sane, and continue to give them a taste of what's to come once pledgeship is over. Every once in a while, pledges are rewarded with a #91 Pledge Social.

Big Brothers

Each pledge is given a slight glimmer of hope throughout their semester of hell. While a pledge and his pledge class will become unified in their position against the brotherhood, a small group of brothers will serve as allies for the…

Fraternities in a nutshell encompass all that hazing and partying have to offer. It's the cold hard facts, and the mountains are as blue as they get. There are numerous forms and fashions, with countless different objectives, dilemmas and…

Awkward Transition

The transition period between Pledge and Brother creates an eloquent awkwardness. It’s truly difficult to explain. For months, a pledge rivals his position as the scum of the earth. The Brotherhood makes life miserable. It’s inevitable that…

Why We Haze

Society consists of an overwhelming amount of anti-hazing douche-bags. Wherever the pre-conceived notions came from, it’s pretty fucking obvious that the haters of hazing can be sourced back to GDI college life. Only those who have…

Rush Preparation

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes? Here's your backstage access to what fraternities do to prepare for #2 Rush. While most outsiders consider a group of fraternity guys to be lackluster in their preparation skills, the truth is…
