Anti-Hazing Douchebags

Also known as GDI’s, Anti-Hazing Douchebags are all those opposed to the sacred ritual of hazing a pledge’s balls off. Who would ever disagree with such time-honored tradition? But hey, we can always embark upon ropes courses, trust falls…

Initiation

It's that time of the year. Hell week can't last forever. The Brotherhood says goodbye to Santa's little helpers. Yet, while pledges are no more, a celebration is in order.  It's time to initiate.

Brother Hazing

For all you naive folk out there, pledges aren’t the only ones getting their shit rocked. Think about it, pledgeship only lasts for a few months. What the hell is the brotherhood supposed to do without pledges to haze? It’s like having a…

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…

Frat Life Reality TV

The concept of televising fraternity life seems like the ideal form of entertainment. Constant parties, horny sorority girls and pledge hazing would make for quality television, especially on MTV. Well, history proves otherwise (much to my…

Hazing Video

Every once in a while the Brotherhood runs across a video worth sharing. In most cases, society's taboo practices usually create a gold-mine of underground content. Yet, there isn't too much evidence out there. You be the judge whether or…

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…

Game Day Pledgeship

The life of a pledge is full of ups-and-downs: a rollercoaster, if you will. With orientation, pledge socials, hell week, and so much more, it’s tough to put your finger on the highest-highs or the lowest-lows. In the Fall, one day reigns…

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…

I Love College

The breeding ground for alcoholics, drug addicts and wicked hazing can all be attributed to the greatest four-year vacation of your life: COLLEGE. If you think that’s a bad thing, go fuck yourself. Let’s face it, when you walk into the real…

Summer Session

Society is extremely gracious in their acceptance of college as a tradition among youths. Yet, college will never settle. Hence, summer session. The greatest 4+ years of your life have not and will not be boxed into two semesters. When…

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…

Fear of the Unknown

As a pledge, knowing what’s going to happen next allows you to mentally, and sometimes physically, prepare for the shit to come. Well fuck-- where's the fun in that? It's like knowing you're about to get punched in the face. The knowledge…

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…

In The Haze

While the Brotherhood continues it's perpetual symphony of fraternal order, the outside world shakes its ever-condoning finger. With the Fall semester right around the corner, the world wide web brings together a spectrum of mindsets far…

Animal House

I think we can all relate to one historical past-time that fully encompasses all that is Greek-life: Animal House. Nothing sparks a national boner more than a few alcoholic frat boys with an overdose of testosterone and unlimited kegs to…

Pledge Class Pet

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…

Frat Castles

It's time to be superficial. When it comes to fraternity life, it's all about the frat castle. If you're not familiar with the term, #30 fratty vocabulary can help you out. Fraternity houses all over the country are the spectacles of their…

Parental Problems

It's one of the hardest hurdles to overcome as a freshman. Convincing your parents to rush and pledge a fraternity is as difficult as it gets. Some are blessed with Greek family traditions, while others are tortured by old school…
