Obviously from the first post, I was not a frat guy, didn't want to be a frat guy, didn't want anything to do with him. However, when I went out to rush it all changed. I really met a lot of quality guys out there that were having the best times of their lives. I was a little jealous almost. My motto in life "Don't knock till you try it," once again, stepped in, but it was for the best this time. The frat that I joined has the highest GPA on campus. A few presidents and validitorians have gone through it too. Last night at the party, really showed me how much these guys care about each other. Every other minute, more high fives, hugs, and "I love you man's." It was a little unreal. My pledge class alone is going to be great. I know not all of my friends got in, but there are still a lot of guys there that are going to make it great.
The one thing that bugs me about the whole thing though, is the label that I'm going to get around campus, especially when I wear my letters. It's nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, I'm proud to be a Sig Ep. What's going to get me is the fact that I'm going to be looked at as "a frat guy." Even when I told my parents, my dad made some crack about "where's the beer," or something to that effect. People will judge me before they even know me. The truth is, I don't drink. My friends know that.
Overall though, I think from now on, most of my posts are going to be about the frat. Not all, I'm sure there will be some random thoughts about this and that, but the crazy nights and hardcore parties are going to come from that. I guarentee it. Hopefully I made the right choice. I trust these guys, so we'll see what happens. If you ever get the chance to rush or look at frats, check them out. You might be surprised. Until next time, ciao.
