It is the most reliable way, that's why a lot of them do it. obviously there are other ways around it, but i mainly wanted to know your methods.

Are you starting college this year? If so, yeah, making friends first is the most important part of college. That's the #1 thing I learned.

I was in a fraternity in college. Actually started the chapter on our campus so I didn't have any hazing at all. It was mostly just recruiting others and doing what we needed to in order to be an official chapter according to nationals.

From the stories I've heard the Asian fraternities were the worst at hazing.

This guy and I are actually in the same fraternity. Different colleges though.

For example you weren't allowed to order pledge pushups at parties with girls, or even refer to a pledge as a pledge. We treated them like brothers from day 1.

The torture, the gay stuff, that doesn't happen in the vast majority of chapters. I won't say it never does because I'll still hear a story every now and then.

Bottom line is hazing is a law suit nightmare. I know it was common at one point but the vast majority of fraternities don't do it anymore. If they do, it's an individual chapter going outside the rules. If they are caught doing it there are major fines and sanctions.


Schools and fraternities are trying to put a halt to hazing, and it has worked mostly, but there are still some pockets of it... and yes, it is a law suit nightmare these days.. I went to FAMU and they hazed like crazy at that school.. They even hazed on the marching band... Somebody died recently too from hazing and they are in deep sh*t over it..

My mom was the regional lead of a sorority and I used to get calls at the house from girls crying and warning her of incidents that had happened on nearby campuses.. She used to pull her hair out worrying about trying to stop the hazing and keep her chapter from getting kicked off campus or sued over some BS the females were doing..

I was in a social frat. You definitely meet a lot of people and greatly expand your social circle

It helped me get my internship while in college

Some people get a lot out of it and some people regret it.. a lot of it depends on the person's personality and if they can keep up with the responsibilities and having to pay dues
