A question to ponder while you're bored in class...
we all know that there are levels - good houses, medium houses, baaad houses. Clearly its best to be in a good house, better to be in a medium than none at all BUT
which is better, being in the worst house on campus (the ugly/socially awkward/really just sad girls) or a GDI? And by better, I mean which position is most likely to allow you a) to have some fun b) to find a man and c) to be the least pathetic
I know what I think, but what do 'yall think???
Being greek is not just about being popular, It helps to be in one of the best (if not THE best) houses on campus, as we Sorostitutes are, but being greek is about making friends for life, helping others and having a raging good time doing it. Even the socially awkward weirdo houses have frats just like them, and they can socialize and date in those confines. Being a GDI means you will be friends with just anyone, don't care as much about your future and have no goals. When we send girls through recruitment we can usually clearly see which girls will end up where, but what we tell them is true- you WILL end up where you belong. You wouldn't want to be in a top tier house if you were totally a weirdo misfit, you would hate it and never get out of it what others would. Conversely, if you are a nice girl with a good background and good social skills but you are certainly not outstanding in anyway, you will end up in a medium house and chances are you will have the time of your life and not pay too much attention to the fact that everyone else thinks you are mediocre.
That being said there is nothing like winning every award your entire four years in the chapter, nothing like having fratdaddies clamor to come to your events because they are "THE BEST", nothing like having parties and events every weekend. We all know our freinds at TFM think that if you aren't in the top 1 or 2 houses you might as well just go buy a hackysac and some cargo shorts and become a GDI. BUT the greek system doesn't work if you only have a few houses, those are lame schools in the middle of the country where being greek means absolutely nothing. True thriving greek systems need all the tiers, and if all the girls who got bids at crappy houses fled, then the whole thing folds.
As tolerant as I may seem, I do really hate when the really lame lower tier fratties I know post TFM's on their facebook, or when lower tier sorostitutes call them selves slampieces.
THAT, my sisters, is a title you have to earn ;)
