    College Fraternities College fraternities have always struck me as being an organization of guys who spend their time drinking beer and having their "social gatherings" (parties). Just moving to Austin recently (which is by no doubt a "college city") has made me want to know more about the sole purpose of these fraternities. For these reasons I chose to select this culture for my essay. The definition of a fraternity is defined as " chiefly social organization of male college students, usually

    The Positive Influences of College Fraternities According to Webster's New World Dictionary the definition of a stereotype is: a fixed or conventional notion or concept.

    Should Fraternities Be Banned From College Campus The frequency of binge drinking at fraternities and sororities leads to an “Animal House” style of living. (Dr. Henry Wechsler, Harvard University) Students celebrate the end of the week by flocking to local bars for $2 pitchers. They prepare for the big game by tailgating in the parking lots with coolers full of beer. Fraternities use keg parties to help recruit new pledges.

    of sororities and fraternities, people have been skeptical about if the pros of the clubs outweigh the cons. Every year, when freshmen go to a school that offers Greek life, they have a choice.
