Greek ranking

http://www.bestcollegereviews.org/greek-life/

No. 48? I have doubts about this organization. Perhaps their data is old.
At the height of things we'd have been in the top 25 but how can we even be in the top 50? Have other schools cracked down as much?
*Upon further review this rating is worthless horsesh*t clickbait.

How could you have the audacity to suggest that a place that says we're located in "Eaton" get the rankings incorrect?

After all, it only says there's still 10 active chapters instead of 9 current chapters.

Other info are pulled from greeklife.lafayette.edu. Chances are the site e-mailed a bunch of advisers for a summary and ranked that way.

That being said, things are looking up at Lafayette for fraternities and sororities. Record number of students registering for recruitment this fall, an interest group becoming a colony in the next 2 months (good luck to both groups competing for the spot) followed by full recognition next year, and congratulations to this house.

My house had a $100,000 or so annual budget. We -- teenagers mostly -- dealt with the school, vendors, contractors, parents, the cook and other employees.
We dealt with federal paperwork and whatever else came down the pike.
Every house needed a core of six or eight guys to keep the place in order.
Being part of that group was an experience worth more than any class I took.

+1

We owned our house and everything came from our own budget.  Not a dime from the college.  Alums kicked in when we needed some roof work done and some new storm windows but other than that we were on our own.

We all grew up fast and learned to accept responsibility.  Yes, we painted the walls in some bizarre colors and the hot water didn't always work as it should. Pub nigh clean-up was a chore, and shoveling snow before 8:30 classes required bribes, but there never was a dull moment.  As the chapter president, it was something I'll never forget.

It's kind of sad that today's kids won't really get to enjoy that experience.

Except for snow-shoveling, I think all of what you describe is possible for students to experience.

By no means is it the universal experience, but it is available.

I think Chi Phi will eventually come back. Maybe in a year, maybe two. They are still officially recognized by their nationals. College is moving slow to add organizations.

nationwide the universities have clamped down on frats. Unsanctioned parties are not happening anywhere and the penalties are severe. Greek life is far from what it was, and that is probably a good thing.
