Like a storm cloud on a summer day or a hair in your food, the issue of hazing is the ever-looming aspect of Greek life that threatens to ruin everything. While every inter/national fraternity and sorority has a no-hazing policy, the issue continues to be a problem (in fact, last week a chapter at my alma mater was reprimanded for hazing).
Public speaking can be daunting, especially when the audience is a group of sorority girls. And if a brother isn’t ready, his speech may sound more like a foreign language than an announcement. While sorority members may overlook mumbling or think its “cute”, it really doesn’t reflect well on your chapter. Prepare your brothers with a public speaking workshop or a quick bullet-point presentation.
When you’re an active fraternity or sorority member, going Greek seems like the most natural thing in the world. However, for potential new members, joining a fraternity or sorority or even going through formal recruitment can be an intimidating decision and a staggering step to take.
One of the great aspects of Greek life is participating in fraternity and sorority intramural sports. Not only is it an easy way to stay in shape and avoid the freshman 15, it also allows members to get to know each other, bond, and come together in an effort for your chapter.
