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…

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…

The Snitch

With pledgeship already a few weeks in the books, it's time to discuss the elephant in the room. The process of pledging is one of gradual pain. Hazing begins on a small level, and works its way up. The brotherhood needs to filter out the…

SigEp Rape Survey

"If you could rape someone, who would it be?" If that's not enough of an incentive to read this story, I don't know what is. University of Vermont SigEp was suspended for an offensive survey. Shocker? Not really. Check out the article after…

6 Common Myths

It's sometimes best to let the media speak, even if their inspirational #29 anti-hazing douchebag commentary makes you sick. We can't always be supportive of the brotherhood, now can we? Either way, take a quick read over a local…

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…

The Portfolio

Welcome. Around 2 years ago, a few fraternity brothers (a few drinks in) came up with the nit-witted idea to start a website. Broke as always, the stellar bunch somehow rounded up enough money to make it happen. 80+ articles and 100+…
