professional networking? i've never seen anyone get a job because they were in a frat, in fact most of the people i know that were super into that stuff are the manager of applebees, so yes if you want to professionally network with the outback manager then a frat is going to be awesome for your career, otherwise you're better off concentrating on your degree.. frats are good for meeting people because you're too stupid to meet them on your own, and banging super hot chicks.

I have personally seen plenty of people get jobs simply because they happened to be fraternity brothers or sorority sisters of people who had the power to hire them..

And people who focus on "chicks" and the partying aspect of Frats are being narrow minded and only focusing on what it means when members are undergrad students..

In school, frats means parties and girls, but once they get out, they have connections with many people they have never met simply because they are of the same fraternity..

Dont think a guy who kappa wont hire another guy who is kappa when everything is equal... or maybe not equal..

It matters on a professional level.

I was in a social fraternity in undergrad, professional fraternity in d-school. Had some great times and made life-long friends.

I didn't do it when i was in college, but looking back i think i shoulda tried to join one.

It gives you a good group of people that will be your friends for at least those 4 years of school.

And some of the people i know who were in frats (my roommate from freshman year, and this other kid) still talk to some of their frat bros.


And of course, you get automatic access to the parties and you get to invite people in for free...which gives you power and automatically makes you the Shit, so then everybody wants to get to know you.

I know some of the ones at my alma mater, Ohio University, got closed down for various reasons.

I was still able to meet tons of people, party, and have fun without being in one.

Everyone kinda joins their own group in college. Even if you're totally against frats, clubs, etc., guess what? That makes you part of that group of people. Nothing wrong with that at all.

One word of advice: not all frats are the same. People have an image of a stereotypical frat douchebag and believe me those types of houses exist, but there are all kinds.
