I never had any interest in going to college so maybe this is a stupid question, but I don't understand college fraternities. From what I can tell they are groups that you join to get dangerously drunk, do drugs, party, and have sex. Sounds great, but why in the world would any school support that? Why do parents let their kids join? Then there's that whole "pledge" ridiculousness. Why would someone subject themselves to the humiliating shit they do just to join a group? And what's up with all the greek bullshit?
My best friend joined a fraternity years ago and as far as I'm concerned it was the same as a cult. He did lots of bad things he shouldn't have, got arrested, took 6 years to get a 4 year degree, and completely abandoned all of his other life long friends. All of that out of character for him. We are no longer friends because of it.
