I was reading the GC members' worst nightmare thread, and I thought I'd start this one. I've heard so many crazy rumors about things that people supposedly do to their new members and I'd love to hear what rumors fly around the freshman dorms at your schools. Here's what I've heard from freshman girls so far:

We make our new members eat HoHo's until they throw up (this changes every year, I think the year I pledged everyone was saying it was M&Ms) :rolleyes:

Some one started one that we're really lazy and we'll all go to bed with our doors open and then we call our new members and make them come down campus to shut our doors for us (who comes up with this stuff??) :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Here's the grand-daddy (and this one rotates from sorority to sorority each year, currently people are saying it's someone other than us right now). Apparently sororities here make their girls sit naked on basketballs and watch porn....I'm not going to say the rest, it's just not appropriate. Yeah, like that happens!!!! Who in thier right mind would not quit on the spot if anyone actually made them do that??!! I know I would! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

POTENTIAL NEW MEMBERS: just know that this stuff is purely made up, no chapter in their right mind would do this stuff. If you're in college, you've probably heard it, if you're not yet, you will. Just know that it is bogus. All of us actives just like to laugh about what people who aren't in greek life THINK goes on. Trust me, it doesn't.

There was a rumor going around about one of the sororities saying that they made a pledge sit between two sisters and eat an entire jar of mayonnaise and if she got any barf on either of the sisters she had to start over. :rolleyes:

Supposedly one sorority had a file that contained Xeroxes each pledge had made of her breasts. Each pledge class had to make a middle of the night run to Kinko's and, um, copy themselves!
:rolleyes:

One sorority was rumored to have their letters tattooed on the inside of their thighs (this was back before tattoos were commonplace) :rolleyes:

Some other chapters in Texas thought we hazed. Listen to this. Too funny.

Apparently we had thsi thing called the "Wheel of Misfortune". We used it if our pledges got outta line. It was allegedadly a six foot revolving wheel that was placed in a baby pool of water. The pledges were strappd to it and there was a car battery that was next to it and had jumper cables that went from the battery to the pool of water. The pledges were then asked questions and every answer they got wrong, they got a spin on the wheel, dipping their hands feet and head in the water, shocking them.

Um, yeah. Wheel of misfortune. I wanna make a shirt withthat on it. :rolleyes:

Amen to that! Of course there are many greeks who like to sit around and make up stuff about other chapters. Its not just a GDI thing!

three words:

Circle the Fat

Hands down the silliest rumor out there on any campus.

SSS1365
12-11-2001, 10:00 AM
Gotta agree with the circle the fat one... Although a sorority here actually did do that way before I was a student here.

One about us that our NATIONALS came up with (:confused: ) was that we made our new members carry around baby bottles and drink out of them. I don't know where they heard this from, but it's ridiculous. :rolleyes:

Let's see... there's a long-standing rumor here about an off-campus (not even national) fraternity. Supposedly, their pledges have to get really friendly with goats. Also, every semester during their hell week they have to go the whole week without showering or changing clothes. I promise you that, unfortunately for those of us who have classes with them, the latter is true. But I don't think the goat thing is. Oh and another one about them is that the pledges do a "pick and stick" where they choose a sorority and they have to rape a girl from that sorority and she has to be wearing letters because they have to get pictures for proof. I never heard this rumor until my sorority was "picked." Funny how no one ever even attempted to abduct any one of us. :rolleyes:

These are rumours that i have heard:

We make our new girls carry around a can of beer in their backpacks to classes.

Circle the fat! (apparently all the sororities do this)

We make them wear white thongs to initiate and they have to run around in them. (um, i don't think when our rittual was founded there were such things as thongs!)

One of the frats has to be "friendly with sheep".

one of the frats have the brothers slit their wrists

dzrose93
12-11-2001, 11:17 AM
I think the fraternity pledges being friendly with sheep and the sorority pledges having their fat circled are the two most notorious rumors around today. :rolleyes: It's too bad that so many people choose to put so much stock in these ridiculous rumors instead of using their God-given brains to do a little research and find out the truth.

The "Circle the fat" rumor is on my campus too. I didn't know the rumor was so widespread.

Here are some others: sorting sprinkles by color, doing pushups in their underwear on top of a sprinkler, pledges have to go to a sisters room to change the channel on their tv, shmegging...

and the most wide spread rumor is of a fraternity that filled a bathtub full of water on the third floor of their house and pledges had to get the water from that tub down to an empty tub in the basement by filling their mouth with water and running downstairs (without swallowing or spitting) and spitting the water out in the tub in the basement.

Sad thing is that some of this stuff actually DOES happen. On our campus, and this is no rumor, one of the sororities has their new members sleep in their basement in trash bags. Another group does not allow their new members to go to their rooms for the entire last week of pledging. They carry everything in their backpacks, wear the same clothes and don't shower all week. Trust me, I sat next to one of the pledges when I was a pledge, and that girl REEKED!!! And one of my best friends in high school, while she would not really divulge what she had to do, told me that if they got to do the dishes at night at the house, that was a privilege!!

I know on other campuses, hazing does exist. On one of the campuses that I advise a chapter at, a sorority got caught by their national organization hazing. The group had two choices: repledge or be stripped of their letters. After they made their decision, they sat and with the president of the national organization, sent a letter to the president of all of the other national organizations on campus, telling them of all the hazing that went on in all of the sororities. Some of the stuff was hideous!

The circling the fat one, always seems to be the number 1 sorority rumor.

Sororities:
- you have to ask a guy three questions, like Can I do this... the last one has to be can I have sex with you? if he says yes, you have too
- military aerobic training
- making the new members sleep in the basement and do crossword puzzles all night
- walking to classes backwards
- mandatory library hours with no talking or studying
- cant call home you're entire pledge period

* some of these are just plain dumb

Fraternities
- making the new members run to sorority houses naked
- getting tarred and feathered in rasberry sauce
- im sure we all know about the brick and the string
- also the cookie in the middle
- being left in the middle of nowhere and finding your way home
- lets see how much you can drink
- strip teases

again, mostly dumb rumors

Here is a rumor. At least I hope it is a rumor. One of the underground fraternities here allegedly makes their pledge masturbate on a biscut. The last one to ejaculate has to then eat the biscut.

lionlove,

my friend had to sort sprinkles for her sorority when she pledged. she told me they had a blast though. and her boyfriend's (ex now) fraternity DID make them empty dirty bathtub water into a toilet bowl.

it's funny because i see you're from PA and this happened at a school in PA. i wonder if you're at the same school...

Some of these stories are making me LMAO. The circle the fat and goat one fly around here too, but I figured those ones do everywhere so I didn't put them down. I think they were in movies, so that's probably why everyone's heard of them. Since some people put down some pretty vulgar ones, I'll tell the whole story with the basketball thing. Whichever soroity is unlucky enough to be the chosen doers of this for that year make the girls strip down naked and sit on basketballs. Then they pop a porn tape in the VCR and they have to sit there and watch it until the basketball's wet. It is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard of, although the biscut thing was pretty bad, too. Ewwwwww! How could anyone want to be a member of a sorority/fraternity that bad??? Not me. For all you members that said you know some of this stuff is not rumor, did you graduate a while ago or are you still in school now? I know my school was really bad about it years ago but they have cracked down to where it is nearly impossible to get away with anything so no one does. I hope some of this stuff doesn't go on! I guess I just can't imagine how being a part of a greek organization is important enough to humiliate and degrate yourself. Well, keep 'em coming, I am laughing so hard reading these!:D

I've heard the "circle the fat" one too, but it was from a chapter advisor. No one on my campus did that. (that I know of!)

Unfortunately, (and I hate to introduce a somber note into this discussion, but...) the "let's see how much you can drink" DID happen on my campus, and someone died. The pledges of a certain fraternity (that I will not name) were apparently told to collectively drink a certain amount of alcohol in one evening. One of them drank most of the amount (his share as well as several of his pledge brothers' shares), got sick, was not properly cared for, went into a coma, and died a couple of days later. He had a BAC that equated to 16 drinks in his system - and you metabolize 1 drink per hour - so he'd had a LOT to drink.

I'm just glad my sorority, as well as all other NPC sororities AFAIK, have a no-alcohol policy.

I know for alot of people the swallowing a goldfish rumor is just that, but back when our chapter started, girls used to have to on their hell night. If you look at our old albums its in there. But we definately are the non-hazers now... we dont let anything happen!

yeah that happened in my chapter back in the days when we were a local...food fights were quite popular also. Ketchup, syrups, eggs, mayo you name it. We cleaned our attic early in the fall and had a good laugh at the pictures...and a grossed out shudder too! YUCK!

Yes a fraternity on campus here does make the guys spend the last week of initiation at the house and they can't change their clothes or return to the dorm. I know this is true because I used to date the President and I have four sisters that have dated guys in this same fraternity. I don't think this is a bad hazing personally. Because they aren't harming anyone. Well unless you sit next to the guys in class.

I've heard the circle the fat rumor.

UMgirl

The not being able to change clothes and spend the week at the house is a hell week thing at UM, but I know people who have gottem around it.

12-12-2001, 01:02 PM
This is not really a hazing rumor, but it's kind of funny. A fraternity here makes their pledges carry around their pledge books at all times in the waistband in the back of their pants. So I was sitting in the library one day and I heard the alarm at the door keep going off (It does that if someone walks out with a book). I looked up and this pledge was trying to leave but the people at the circulation desk wouldn't let him go till they were satisfied that he wasn't stealing anything. He took everything out of his pockets and kept trying, but nothing worked. It was hilarious to watch him try to figure out what to do about his pledge book because they wanted to see it and he wasn't allowed to show it to them!

MoxieGrrl
12-12-2001, 01:15 PM
Wow....most of these are true on my campus.....

One sorority makes their pledges do "Kegs and Eggs"
Another makes their littles carry around bricks and answer to their name with ridiculous phrases...one girl had to say "Who me? The b*!ch with the big, big titties?"

The fraternities here do the most homo-erotic things ever. And wouldn't you know the worst offender is the one with the most macho guys?

I know that these are all true because everyone is friends with everyone at Bethany, and people have spilled to me. What I think is funny is that some PNM's won't pledge our house b/c we don't do things like this. They say pledging here doesn't sound like "fun"??!!!

At Duquesne, my roommate pledge a sorority where they pretty much controlled her life. She had to eat with them every day, could only go to class if she was with another pledge, had to address all sisters by their full name and say their hometown whenever she saw them, and look down as a sign of deference. She came home crying every night. And what she told me isn't all of it....

Another sorority at Duquesne did do the circle the fat, masturbate on a basketball things....the girls who pledged this house lived next door to me. Plus, they came to get them at 1 AM, made them dress like whores, and walk the streets of Oakland asking anyone if they were "looking for a good time.'

Ick...I'll stick with my "boring", non-hazing house!

Yeah Moxie, we had sororities like that too. I will never forget one night being in bed in the dorm when this loud knocking came at our door. I was like "what the hell, is the building burning down or something?". I opened up the door and it was a sorority looking for one of their pledges, and it was about 2:30 in the morning!!! Guess they had the wrong door, but they had two pledges with them dressed up in crazy get ups with the word "BAG" written across their foreheads. Lovely :) I'll stick with my boring non-hazing house as well :)

Was this one of the locals at Duquesne? When I was at Pitt some years back there was a Duquesne sorority called Tau Delta Tau that was pretty notorious for their bad hazing. I just wondered if they were still around and if this was them.

The craziest rumor has to be the lingerie pillowfights.

Yup, happens everyday!!

12-12-2001, 10:06 PM
Yeah, my boyfriend says that he WISHES that the rumor he heard about the ZTA lingerie pillow fights were true. ;)

In high school, I heard a rumor that one of the fraternities at UCF did something called the Elephant Walk. This is kinda gross so beware! Supposedly, all the guys stood naked in a line. They each had to walk with one thumb in their mouth and the other in...ahem...the guy in front them's buttocks. If the guy stumbles, he has to switch thumbs. UGH!!!!! YUCK!!!! It's not true though!

I held a leadership position on one of the student organizations my freshman year. The advisor was very anti-greek. She had gone to UCF and had graduated about five years before. She had the nerve to say to me, "When I was an undergraduate, they use to make all the new ZTA's sleep with at least one frat boy before initiation. Do they still make you do that?" I answered sarcastically, "Yes...after they circle our fat." :rolleyes:
And, no, ZTA never made their pledges sleep with frat guys!

12-12-2001, 10:11 PM
My campus has it's share of rumors. Here are a few:

-Phi Tau's house has an underground tunnel to ZTA's house for "easy access" rendezvouses
-DZ pledges have to be gangbanged by 4 brothers of SAE prior to initiation
-Each KD pledge has to sit in the middle of a room surrounded by the sisterhood and has to survive an undetermined duration of belitiling
-TKE pledges are given a a puppy at the pledge inductions. they raise the puppy thoughout plegeship, get attached to it, then the night before initiation, the must slit the throats of the dogs.
(And let's not forget the rumor of my chapter, LMAO...........)
-APO "supposedly" invites Gamma Sigma Sigma to a "night of pleasure" with our new brothers right after inititaion.

Of course, these are all complete and utter BULLS**T!!!!

They didn't want us to beat them or make them sit on basketballs or anything, but they wanted more "drop off in the woods behind school and find your way back type of thing." It amazes me.:p

I will go on believeing that every new Victoria Secret Catalog is just outlining the life and times of a different sorority chapter :D

Some girl from home actually asked me if we had to 'get naked' during our rituals. I wanted so badly to say 'Yes...nothing unifies a group of sisters like seeing each other in the nude!' but she seemed so obtuse I was afraid she'd take me seriously!

As for you, James, and any other male whose fantasies of half-naked sorority girls frolicking about all day and night are now shattered, I sincerely apologize. You may now return to your regularly scheduled (if slightly perverted and *very* misguided) programming! ;)

Yes, it was a local at Duquesne. However, not Tau Delta Tau. They were gone by the time I got there. A friend of mine who graduated Duq asked me about them when I was there b/c he remembers them always giggling and saying "We've got "Taus" on our ta-ta's!" OMG....gag me...!

I think that they were absolved (right word? I don't know!) by a National.

A friend of mine went to Frostburg a thousand years ago and had the same thing as was previously mentioned.

The guys had to sit on a block of ice (naked from the bottom down) and once their asses were numb, they had to pass a cherry with their ass cheeks to one another. No one could ever do it because they couldn't feel anything.

Frostburg is NOTORIOUS for their hazing because there isn't much to do up in the mountains.

The KTE's (a local sorority) has done some really cruel things and have landed many many girls in the hospital and some have even had nervous breakdowns because it's so intense.

They should be shut down.

Well sadly out chapter did do a lil hazing back in the day our former president told us she had to carry a rock around with her at all time, as big as her love for tri delta. Well that was stopped quickly by nationals and the girls responsible were expelled from school and the sorority. Anyways I have heard some scary stuff about what chio at our school is supposed to do to their pledges, coffins and stuff, yuck! The frats at our school will all tell you they don't haze, but they do. The SN well they give all thier pledges a bottle of alcohol to drink before initiation, but their big brother can help. The DX make their pledges build a house that has to always have a brother in it during i week, oh and that is after the bottle of everclear they have had to drink and before they eat dog food in the forest and have to find their way home.... if only their nationals knew...

Circling the fat is when you stand naked or in underwear (depending on who's telling the story) and the sisters circle the places on your body where you need to lose weight.

Sigma Kappa nationals are beyond ultra strict. We had a "stoplight" exchange with Sigma Pi, and our nationals got mad because everybody had to wear different colors. (Everybody was wearing either red, yellow, or green to signal their availability)...Anywho.....

But here are some fun rumors...

*One of the sororities gets all of their new members very drunk...makes them take off their clothes, except their underwear, then their big sis buries their clothes in the ground, and the new members have to dig them up...after they find them that is.

*Another sorority does "drop-offs" they drop all of the new members off in a different parts of the ghetto (well...it is Long Beach...and the new members have to find their way back to the house

*One of the fraternities does Elephant Walk.......yuck

*Another fraternity soaks their pledges in oil and makes them wrestle each other.

-ewww....

Do you go to CSULB? If you do...do you have chapter houses? I went to visit my cousing at CSULB a few months ago and I didn't see any houses.

pbpck,

I am a CSULB alumna. Yes, Long Beach State fraternities and sororities do have chapter houses. The reason you didn't see any is because there is no Greek Row. None of the houses are "near" the university per say. Most are about 2+ miles away - one fraternity's house is realllly far (and in a realllly bad part of town).

Though, I sorta want to clarify lilsnakeyk's comment. Contrary to popular rap songs, Long Beach is not a giant ghetto! :) The areas around the college are actually quite nice. But yes, there are some bad neighborhoods.

To stay on topic....I haven't heard any crazy hazing rumors about Long Beach State as far as IFC, NPC or NPHC go. However, lilsnakeyk can probably vouch for me when I say that there's one Hispanic Co-Ed fraternity on campus that does interesting things! They make their pledges wear a wooden stick around their neck advertising their pledge status. They have to greet actives with rehearsed sayings and wear crazy costumes. About two semesters ago, I saw a couple of the guys dressed up to look like they were homosexuals. :rolleyes: BTW - these aren't rumors, they're true. This group, for some reason, makes no effort to hide the fact that they do these things. This last spring they got into major trouble for paddling a member during a scavenger hunt. The student was injured and ended up filing a police report. [big sigh] Rumors or not, hazing is just plain stupid.

OK, this is not a rumor - it really happened to a guy I was close friends who as at another university. This frat took groups of pledges (usually 4 at a time) to a goat farm, undressed them to their undies, covered them in honey, tied them to a post, and left them overnight. I know its wrong, but I lmao when he came home the next morning. Just imagining those honey covered men trying to fend off the goats - and god knows what else - cracks me up.

Also, when I was at UTK, I remember someone bringing a naked pledge to the courtyard (the middle of 4 dorms) and tied him to the flag pole and began singing "twinkle twinkle little star". I heard the singing and my friend looked out and screamed "ahhhh yeah that dude is naked!" Needless to say everyone was looking out the windows, and I guess his gf saw him, because she rushed outside and took her sweater off to try to cover him up! Haha!

We have the same rumors that everyone else here is mentioned. it's funny though, because every year I see athletic teams out on campus or in the village in their tied together in their underwear singing Backstreet Boys songs at the top of their lungs or something equally inane...

This has yet to get the attention of the campus newspaper.

We used to do something like that at debate tourneys! You know those sheets of star stickers that have red, gold, green, blue and silver? Well you got one, two or three stars...

Red: Signifigant Other - Stop
Yellow: Dating - Proceed with caution
Green: Single - Go!
Blue: Special Prefrences (can be added to above)
Silver: Will do anything (kinky really... and can be added to above)

It was funny, but also handy to see who was available!



Also, my friend from HS was in a 'local band org' if you can call it that, at his school. We had heard that they had to 'have relations' with a sheep to get it. I didnt believe it, so I went up to him and asked him if it was true. All he did was look at me and say "Im in the fraternity arent I?!"

My favorite hazing rumor is of a sorority on campus that has a rep for being spoiled Daddy's girls. They apparently make their pledges go to each sister's house or room and catalog their wardrobes. After that, sisters ask them, "How many pairs of black pants do I own?" and "How many Steve Maddens do I have?" and the pledges get yelled at if they don't know. :rolleyes:

We have one fraternity on campus that has since lost it' charter for hazing and has gone underground. During the last week of pledging, none of the boys could say "I"- they had to refer to themselves in the 3rd person ("George says hi,"). Also, they weren't allowed to feed themselves- their pledge brothers had to feed them. It ws quite a sight to see these dirty boys in the cafeteria, saying, "Nate wants another french fry" and Scott feeding him the fries... not really subtle, were they?

ok, i've heard every rumor in the book. i've actually had a rushee ask me if we do ookie cookie. somebody mentioned it earlier. everyone jacks off on a cookie, last one to finish eats it. if that was the case i wouldn't be a tke. anyway, these things used to really happen. note to nationals: we've gotten rid of hazing since i've been a pledge, so no need to get all uptight.
of course we ask every candidate if they're allergic to wool (supposedly all tekes have an affinity for sheep). i've never seen a sheep in my life though. ok, baptismal: brothers spend 2 weeks doing whatever they want in a bucket and the pledges on the night before initiation have to dunk their heads in it. butt signing: we all had to get our signatures on our butts from a list of certain girls on campus. pledge train: act like a choo choo train and parade through all the sorority floors.
here are a couple of unfounded rumors, but things that i've been told are true by members of their very own house... elephant walk. switch: like elephant walk with one thumb in your mouth the other thumb, you know where, and switch! pledges (sorority) have to be able to squat on a champagne bottle and lift it off the ground. the best is a rumor in security, that they busted an underground fraternity with their pledges sitting in a trashcan full of water with wires pulled out of the lights in the ceiling. oh, i have so many more stories, but i've rambled enough.

A couple of years ago a NPC sorority here got in big trouble for hazing their pledges. It's a true story, not a rumor, as several people I know, including my roommate that year, were at the party and saw everything. Anywho..

It was their Bid Night party at a club off-campus. The initiated sisters encouraged the pledges to get as drunk as possible, and told them that they'd stay sober and watch out for them. They didn't. The sisters ended up writing things like "I'm a hot XYZ pledge and I'm not wearing any underwear", "F*ck me", "I want your dick", and other disgusting things all over their bodies and then sent them to walk the mile back to campus in the middle of the night (a horrible neighborhood in which a rapist was loose at the time) by themselves, completely sloshed...there was a huge snowstorm that night, and luckily nothing happened to any of the pledges..well, a couple went to the hospital for alcohol reasons, but none were attacked, miraculously.

Some things written here that people thought were rumors do happen, but are usually exaggerated. For me I I'm not sure what I can say. For the final week of my pledge semester all the pledges had to stay at our house. We weren't supposed to be anywhere else besides class, without telling somebody. The idea of that wasn't to haze us but to get us to spend more time together to bond. I personally also did a lot of crazy stuff too, that nobody said they were going to kick me out of the fraternity if I didn't do. People should just be a little open minded and realize there is probably a little truth to all the stories.

When I was a freshman at SMU, a Pike pledge came up to my all-girl floor with his big brother and a permanent marker and asked every girl on the floor to sign his body. He couldn't go back until he was #1 covered with sigs, #2 his penis was signed! I signed his stomach, and I heard rumors about which girls had signed butt cheeks and, ahem, you know...but who knows.

06-27-2003, 04:37 PM
These are rumors at my campus, but I am pretty sure they are true:

i have heard rumors of making pledge classes eat an entire pack of cigarettes(even the box and plastic).

i have also heard that a fraternity ties their pledges hands behind their backs. the pledges must put the fire in the fireplace out by waddling to the toilet and getting a mouth full of water to spit on the flame.

blind-folding pledges and telling them to drop their boxers while an entire sorority sits watching.

beer bonging a gold fish.

supposedly during a certain fraternities hell week their pledges have to clean up one of their parties by drinking whatever is in leftover cups and beer cans(cig. butts, chew, etc.)

At another school I have heard of the elephant walk. Don't really want to describe it.

My favorite rumors about our house are 1) naked pillow fights in the basement (its locked and there only one key so no one can get in there) as part of inition which we then watch every year in the spring and 2) we take our NM to the nearest corn field ( oh about 30 min away BY CAR) and drop them off and they have to find their way back to the house for inition ( and the non-existant pillow fight). As we all know, none of this is true :-P although i love being asked about it cuz i get to laught at them and tell em its true knowing that in reality our NM's get spoiled beyond belief :-P Some of the ones from the other houses are : steal at least one thing from every fraternity house, the infamous coffin and dead owl and one of the fraternities appearently had to keep live mice and take them to class with them and at the end of the week ( after attached to them) they had to kill em or feed em to a snake or something.....riiiight :rolleyes: those are the recent ones from our campus....

A fraternity at my school (who everyone wishes would just drop off the face of the earth people all of their members are TRASH) makes their pledges go to Panhellenic when the sororities are having meetings and take pictures of their chapter rooms.

Okay - the set up at my school is there is one huge dorm for sororities. Each sorority has their own chapter room to hold meetings and rituals. Luckily that night when they openned our CHAPTER ROOM DOOR to take a picture of us during meeting, it was only agenda and not ritual. We lock the door for ritual anyways - but still.

It just irks me. What if another sorority abesent mindedly forgot to lock their door for a ritual meeting, and these jerks openned the door and took a picture of it?

Well obviously you can see why we all hate them! Ugh. If someone said hey I know blah blah's ritual would you like me to tell you - I would defintily say no. That secret is something you have to respect, and obviously these guys didn't.

Oh well, they already got kicked out of their big house a few years ago and now have to live in this crappy house. Their membership has completely dropped - and they wonder why.

To add to this delightful list:

Erm, hazing _does_ happen. Circle the fat isn't just a rumor on my campus; a member of a fraternity mentioned to one of my sisters that his fraternity had participated in some heinous hazing on behalf of certain sororities.

And a frat on my campus got disbanded and is currently under investigation because they had a bonfire inside the school-owned dormitory with all their pledges sitting around in diapers. I think the guys are all idiots and that those sororities who want them back as a legit fraternity are on crack. Any GLO who does that to their NMs and school property doesn't deserve to be called Greek.

gottabegreek
06-28-2003, 08:33 AM
Hazing on my campus does occur, but that's probably because greek life here has been around since almost the beginning of GLOs!

Our nationals has really strict rules regarding hazing and we follow them but because we are the only house on campus that "doesn't haze" people don't believe us and think that we just do it behind closed doors. One of my sisters got into an argument with another greek about the fact that we don't make our NMs do anything horrible, she just couldn't believe it.

Of course we have heard tons of rumors about other houses, and Of course, these are rumors but most of them are probably true, or at least have a seed of truth in them somewhere.

Just to name a few...

handing out your phone number to random guys on the street
midnight summons
circle the fat
dressing up in funny outfits chosen during hell week
actives getting their NMs completely drunk...repeatedly
spelling tests of actives first and last names


and from what i hear, the fraternities are even worse...

As for the last 2 posts, I don't believe that anyone ever has or would circle fat. It's pointless anyway--like it would encourage people to lose weight?:rolleyes: --and when new posters bring it up right off, I'm suspicious. *Somebody* seems to be trying to dissuade rising freshmen from rushing.

Lunarwolf
06-28-2003, 10:14 AM
I'm not trying to dissuade anyone from rushing. I'm just pointing out the unfortunate fact that hazing does indeed occur and rising freshmen should be alert for any gut warnings. I mean, a lot of what I've read on this thread is rather amusing in a ridiculous manner, but unfortunately on my campus, hazing does occur in the aforementioned fashions. Let's not forget the fraternities making their pledges march single file behind a brother in exactly his footsteps...*sigh*

I'm proud to be a member of my sorority, especially since AST doesn't haze. However, we seem to be the only ones, because all the other sororities on my campus have, at the very minimum, a 'Hell Week'. What goes on during this period varies from group to group, but just making your NM's have to deal with an additionally stressful time before they can hope for initiation is hazing regardless. One of my friends was exhausted by her Hell Week, and her sorority just runs them ragged with errands instead of abusing them emotionally.

Anyhow, I was just trying to give a cautionary heads up. Sorry if I seemed to have some weird, dubiously heinous motive behind my post.:cool:

I laugh anytime someone brings up the goat thing because of something that happened to my boyfriend.

For intiation, they always go to some random obscure place out in the middle of nowhere the night before. Well they were outside and it was pitch black but the actives knew where they were going. All of a sudden they heard a cow moo. My boyfriend's pledge class got the crap scared out of them because for a split second they thought that all those things they'd heard about what fraternities do to pledges was true! Of course though, it wasn't. It gave everyone a good laugh though.

Now they all laugh their asses off about it. I do too because I can just imagine the horrified look on my boyfriend's face.

I agree, carnation. Circle the fat doesn't happen...as often as people believe. However, it did at one point 6 years ago on my campus. A fraternity brother that is a friend of mine showed me pictures they stole from a sorority house. It was horrifying.

If any PNMs are reading this...DON'T let these rumors discourage you!!! 99.9% of the time that's just what they are...rumors! Maybe things did happen at one time, but rules and people joining GLOs have changed for the better.

I was sitting in our late-night diner one night and I saw some guys eating at full speed and talking about how they had to get to the house. Apparently, they had to gain 5 pounds in one day.

ok, i have a novel hazing rumor thingie:take a leak or f*ck a Teak (TKE)
yup, the girls had to stand outside the TKE house and either pee in front of everyone or go inside and well.....
everytime i tell this to TKE, they all cheer jokingly.

i heard the basketball thing, but it was on newspaper.

lets see, there is the group that makes the new girls make out with each other (personally, I think a guy made this one up for his fantasy)....
we do have a few things that happened back in the 80's, but the rumors that they still go on exsit- there is scavenger hunts where you have to steal property and take pic in front of all the girls houses and be back by 2am; a frat held a loaded gun to someone's head, the beatings, etc etc etc

Potential New Members: Most of what's been written have been rumors, while others have been truths... Please note that what we post on this thread is not how all Greek Organizations are, and only a very small percentage of Greek Life actually have to experience these pratices...

Unfortunately, I know a lot of greeks that have gone through a lot of crap during their pledge period.

These are just some that I know of... (All from different orgs, schools, etc.)

A friend of mine and his pledge class had to steal a street light, and bring it back to the house.

There is a frat that makes it's pledges dress in drag before they will be initiated.

Some of the greeks I know were paddled regularly as pledges.

Another fraternity makes it's plegdes make their class paddle by hand... Once they're done, they are to present it to the brothers... Then the brothers will paddle the pledges until the wood breaks.

The military style line ups are very common around here. I know a girl that now walks with a cane, because she messed up her knee from dropping during her line up.

Uniforms are also very common. One group has to wear black suits and ties during their whole pledge period, another group wears jumpsuits, but the most common uniforms are sweats. And the sororities aren't allowed to wear make-up and HAVE to have their hair a certain way...

I looked through a fraternity's photo album during Welcome Week, and saw some really nasty stuff!!! Pictures: There were pledges in their uniforms... Then there were pledges taking off their uniforms, showing some speedos underneath... Then the pledges were doing push ups in their speedos... And the last picture was of the actives masturbating on the pledges backs! :eek:

A lot of groups on campus have the No Talking rule, during pledging. Some groups only allow the pledges to talk to the actives... And some groups will allow the pledges to speak to someone if that person addresses them. But they have to keep it at a minimum.

I know of pledges having to carry around certain items, like bricks, pledge keys or manuals, the wooden pledge tiki around the neck, etc.

A few organizations have the "moment of breakdown"... Where their pledges aren't allowed to cross (during the night of initiation) until they breakdown and cry.

Then there is the ever present "branding" that goes on.

Well there were no real descriptions of the hazing activities that took place amonngst the national sororities at my school.. however during rush last fall the local sororities were telling PNMs that "the nationals think they're better, but really they just cost more and they haze" Umm... so why is it I see women walking around campus in matching sweat outfits and ugly pins and "greeting" people "hello big sister?" cause I KNOW those aren't members of my sororoity... nor the other two NPC orgs. on campus...

One of my sisters was in a local sorority and dropped before she initiated because she was hazed so badly. This was a while ago, so I don't know if the sorority still does it, but she said they each had to carry a live goldfish with them 24/7, whether it was to class, to a bar, in their car, etc. They also had to carry a brick wrapped like a present in their backpacks. During Hell Week, they had to wear bells on their shoelaces so sisters could hear them coming.

They had a point system in the form of a matchbook. If they did anything wrong, a matchstick was taken away. If all their matches were taken, they were forced to depledge. They were also woken up at 3am one night and forced to wear robes, slippers, and curlers in their hair. Then, they drove around doing chinese fire drills.

Another sorority made thier pledges wear a ponytail for everything they did wrong. Imagine seeing a girl with five or six ponytails walking through the quad. Why some girls put up with this is beyond me...

Ok so not to sound bitchy or anything, but I have to get this off my chest: it seems that a lot of people on this site have a serious problem with local sororities. I have heard a lot of stories about the awful things that local sororities do and how they haze and have poor leadership, etc. Well I would just want to say that I am in a local sorority and I can't say that any of the rumors I've heard are true. We are very involved with the school and are in extremely good standing with the administration. We have won Club of the Year at my school for the past 2 years in a row and have sponsored a vast variety of community service projects at my school including a penny drive for the Pediatric AIDS foundation, 2 blood drives, Take back the Night, etc. In addition, I would just like to say that WE DO NOT HAZE. I just pledged this past semester and I was never once made to feel inferior. The sisters definitely listened to us and when there were things that we felt uncomfortable doing we were told not to worry and we just wouldn't have to do them. As a result, I have formed a very close bond with my sisters and whenever I put on my letters I feel so proud to be part such a wonderful organization. When I hear comments from members of national organizations that are degrading to locals, it makes me angry, because while we may not have a national board behind us, we have a great executive board and 30 sisters.

One fraternity hazing I witnessed:
For a big sis revealing, the actives made their nm's get dressed up in strange outfits and were blindfolded, they had to stand in a line and they had to pass a stick with a cup of water on it down the line, if it was spilled, they had to start over. Then they made them sing, and for the finale, the big sis' had to buy a huge mug and before the pledges could see their big sis, they had to chug the entire mug of beer, some guys were refilling the nm's mugs if they weren't going fast enough.

I also know of a hazing having to deal with a very angry horse. All I know is that one fraternity has this horse, that they don't feed for a while and the pledges get to meet this horse at some point. The guy who told me about this wouldn't say anything more.

One of the Asian fraternities supposedly makes all their new members ejaculate on a cracker and eat it...there is no contest, they all get their own ejaculate cracker.
I've seen one of the Asian sororities making their nm's dress up in various crazy things...one day they were in Ralph's dressed up as Smurfs (complete with blue paint, diapers...etc.)

That is wonderful that YOUR local sorority does not haze. (I'm not being sarcastic, really, it is good.) However, not all local sororities are like that. The local sororities and fraternities at my last school hazed - openly. Because locals don't have a national board, they differ a lot from campus to campus and GLO to GLO.

With all due respect, chapters of national GLO's differ from each other sometimes as much as nationals do. There have been many instances where even though the national board of a GLO is against hazing, a certain chapter has had its charter revoked due to hazing (this has happened several times at my school). Yet whenever that happens, people don't automatically jump to conclusions and assume that all the members of the GLO are bad and condone hazing, they just think that that one chapter was a bad seed. My point is that people group all locals together and take us all to be the bad seeds if one chapter of a totally unrelated GLO screws up.

I don't think anybody on here was doing that - this argument has been had before. People were saying "The locals at my school do blah blah blah..." which is equivelant to saying "The chapter of QVC at my school..." I wouldn't assume anything about a local I know nothing about. However, I can name about 10 locals off the top of my head in Wisconsin that DO haze and embarass the Hell out of other GLOs. Yes, I realize there are nationals that haze - that happens on campuses besides yours. However, I don't think anybody came on here and said "Every single local in the whole world hazes because the one on my campus does." That would be like saying "Every single Gamma Phi Beta is beautiful because the ones at Miami are." It's flawed logic. We were all relating stories about our campus. If you re-read my post, I said that locals differ from campus to campus because they are local and have no national board. Nowhere did I say they are horrible terrible hazers because they have no national board. Don't infer things into posts that aren't there. I was trying to make the point that I was not talking about all locals, but rather the ones at Wisconsin - Platteville.

DaisyKLP, I think you need to relax!

The point of this thread is to relate the usually HILARIOUS and NOT TRUE stories we've all heard about greek hazing.


Does anyone remember that movie about the sorority house that was knocked down? There was a dead baby inside the walls! This would have been like a Lifetime special from the late 80s, from what I remember.... and it was billed as made-up, not "based on a true story," but still.

OH -- also, "Outer Banks," by I forget who, has the main character, Kate, join a sorority -- I think Omega Omega Omega? it was made up -- where the initation ritual involved big and little sis kissing. Of course, later in the book one of her former pledge sisters attacks the others in a homicidal frenzy.

Daisy KLP,
I am well aware that there are locals that do not haze, and I would never intentionally say anything that would promote the image that ALL local ALL across the country haze. I DO know from experience (I was a pledge of one of the locals at my school) that MOST of the locals ON MY campus DO haze.. (btw LadyJ that sorority still does use the matchbook system) and the NPC orgs all thought it was funny that locals were spreading the rumor that we haze. I was by no means attempting to down play the importance of local orgs becuase they are important and do some great work for the community and campus... I just happen to know the ones on my campus happen to haze too.

Things like pledge class greetings, pins and bandanna worn around the leg or arms are done by most GLO's on campus (not by us however! We jut have a small pin). I have heard (and seen) other things, such as seprating sprinkles, militarty line ups where they are quized on informatiom about the group and about sisters personal lives as well (what they like, if they have a bf, #, address, etc) One group dosen;t allow its pledges to speak to guys at all for the last 4+ weeks or so of pledging. Scavanger hunts also are done by a few GLO's

I heard the circle the fat rumors at IU...the Zetas were the ones who supposedly did it. (Not true according to the girl I knew who pledged freshman year.)

The elephant walk rumor I heard about two different houses that got kicked off campus for hazing. No idea how true that is...it's not something I wanted to ask. :eek:

I know the Phi Beta Sigma chapter at IU does brand their members...I've seen some of them with the Sigma branded onto their forearm. Gave me the creeps the first time I saw it.

I found this thread when I used google to find an old hazing article about a local high school. I've been very entertained!

My college boyfriend was in a frat and I always asked him about his hazing stories because they were so funny. Here's what he went through, and I assure you that it's all true because he wasn't clever enough to come up with this stuff on his own (hence, why he's my ex now, ha ha).

-They'd boil cans of beer in a pot and he'd have to drink them. He said most guys chugged theirs to get it over with.
-The pledges had to wear shirts and ties all week when not at the house.
-When at the house, the pledge would wear a shirt designed by his big brother. Most of these were white T's with the nipples cut out.
-The members told him that one night's ritual (sorry if wrong term) was really bad and kept insinuating it involved a sheep. The pledges were terrified when they were led blindfolded into a room and the members kept "bahh-ing" at them. Then two female strippers showed up and put on a girl-on-girl show complete with toys.
-Pledges were put in the back of an SUV with their feet submerged in ice water while the members drove around town.
-Paddling. He showed me his paddle. It had a groove in it from being spanked so much.
-They could only eat whatever the members gave them. I forget details, but it was gross. The pledges were escorted to class to make sure they didn't try to sneak food. My ex's friend hid a $20 bill in the lining of his tie and they snuck out of class to get food. After they were allowed to eat normally again, they all went out to dinner, but no one could eat much because their digestive tracts were all messed up.
-When a pledge had to go to the ER, they'd leave him at the ER doors because they couldn't let anyone know about the hazing.
-Members used pledges as maids, errond-boys, etc..
-If not in class, they had to be at the house.
-No showering.
-They'd be woken in the middle of the night to do push-ups, sit-ups, etc.
-Once they got a bid, pledges couldn't have sex. First night of Hell Week members asked who got laid last night. The kid that raised him hand got paddled.
-Pledges would have to jump off the roof and hope the members would catch him.

That's all I remeber. I heard that when a guy gives a girl his pin, his frat brothers do something evil to him. Since I was so amused by his stories, and we were so in love (blah, blah) he did give me his pin, but told me at our school it wasn't considered a big thing. Wonder if that's really true...

I was lurking about, and I read what a big deal pinning or laviliering(sp?) a girl is. I just wanted to say that when we broke up, I gave my ex his pin back, along with all of his shirts. My two best friends were in sororities at their schools, so I know how important those letters are. I hope all others do the same because my friends are always so sad when they see their pins on eBay! Sorry for the off-topic post.

Well, i got a couple of true stories that border on kind of weird. The first one was a scavanger hut where one team of girls came to my house with their list. On the list was the items photo in a franternity house, photo of a guy in his underwear, and the interesting one - topless photo with a guy. I'm serious here, dead serious.

This is a more darker one. A franternity and a sorority locked their pledge classes in a basement with four kegs and two boxes of condoms. They were told they could only leave when everything was empty, everything.

A thinrd story, one of my friends is a drug dealer. I was with him in the car when he got a phone call from a "new member educator." She had one simple request, 4 ounces of maraijuana. Apperantly she was going to have her pledge class smoke it all. If you've ever smoked weed you know how much that is.

My last story. In front of our DG house there is a hug bronze anchor. At the end of the year the neighborhood fraternities would take a bike lock and attach it through the underwearr of their presiden't boxers and onto the anchor. Then the rest of the guys would run up to the door and ring the door bell, or just make a hell of alot of noise to get the girls to come out. Once the guys hear girls coming they get the hell out, leaving the president bike locked to the anchor in his underwear. Thus leaving him two choices, get put on the sexoffenders list or run home naked.

Here is yet another story of hazing. One of the sororities on campus last year had their pledges dress all in white. Not nice white, but undershirts and sweatpants. The sorority had them all congregate outside of the museam (where i happened to be leaving my class). In the middle of everyone, broad daylight the older sisters in their token suvs drove up and hurried them into the trucks. From there, apparently they drove tohem to the house where in the basement the sisters stood them on tables and began to throw things at them. Most of which was raw meat.

I heard a rumor that a certain fraternity makes its pledge class get completely naked. Whoever in the class has the largest genitalia has to wear a firehat, and whoever has the smallest gets to hold a bucket. I guess when they line up, those two people always have those items on them. I have no clue what that means or anything, but it raised my eyebrow when I heard it.

It's hard to keep up with the scandals at the OU houses. Some of those places just have no clue about discretion.

The rumors at OSU for some houses were pretty disgusting as well. The chapter that immediately comes to mind had a hole in the wall where pledges had to 'prove' how much they loved their house (use your imagination).

Probably the craziest thing I've ever heard about Greek-related was from OSU where someone blew up (with dynamite) a goat on Farmhouse's porch. That almost has to be true. No one could make up something like that.

04-26-2006, 11:15 PM
OU? OSU? Ohio or Oklahoma?

As for all the U of Mich stories, it's no surprise that 9 GLOs were investigated and at least 3 closed last year due to those types of behavior. We had a couple U of Mich threads in the Risk Management forum last year and almost a death a year. No deaths this year, no groups shut down for hazing this year. Hopefully it will continue to improve.

ktsnake: In regards to your comments about alcohol and hazing combined, don't forget about the people who died of water intoxication or who suffered from extreme exertion. Back in my day (early to mid 80's), most hazing I saw occur was combined with alcohol. In some cases, groups continued the same behavior but substituted water, thinking that it couldn't hurt to drink tons of water.

As for things like throwing raw meat at new members while they are standing on tables... I just don't see the point. Why would that be fun for anybody? What purpose would it serve? It certainly wouldn't have a place in Alpha Gamma Delta's Purpose, Mission, or Values. And, why would we want our new members dressed oddly in public? I would think we want to show off our new members as the terrific women they are, not as scruffy in underwear shirts and sweats. It just makes no sense to me.

That's no lie. I'd have agreed about 10 years ago that there was nothing to do in this sleepy little town (OKC).

Bricktown though is on par with any entertainment district I've been to in the U.S. and I live within walking distance.

Tulsa is also a very nice place.

As for Texas being better, I guess you might say that because they have 21-24 million? people and Oklahoma has a little over 3 millions that Texas is far superior? I'm not sure how that translates to quality of life or things that matter, but whatever.

You're absolutely right though, there' s no reason to say ignorant things about other states on this board.

Some rumours from Canada, cuz I know you're all just dying to hear what we talk about up here eh?! ;)

During initiation we require new members to cream corn wrestle and invite a fraternity to come watch. I told my little this as a joke cuz she was freaking out about the "lingerie pillow fights" rumour. It's now become my family line's tradition to tell their little some otrageous rumour about initiation, don;t worry we tell them we're joking.

Fraternities are required to tell about every girl they sleep with in great detail at Chapter meetings. (I'm gonna go ahead and assume this is true cuz you know how the boys love to talk)

Local sororities supposedly do circle the fat, sleep with frat boys and other various rumours that have already been mentioned.

I do know one rumour that is true, sadly because the group in question was dumb enough to post photos of it on an website. Pledges were required to get scantily dressed and clean the entire house of a fraternity. Ugh

Time for another story. This was what i had to due for initiation on the waterpolo team. I was picked up at 3:00 am and had to ride in a trunk in total scilence with the rest of the new guys to one of the senior's houses. From there we were blindfolded and our hands were tied and then we were led into the woods. From there they left us with the instructions to find our ways to the public pool. From there we had to do bear crawls across a soccer field and then run to the closest dorms and grab take-out menus. From there we each had to eat a can of sardines and a jar or hornmeal chili. For those guys who decided that that was too far (it was okay for anyone to backout, that way no one would get in trouble) their portions were to be eaten by the remaining guys. I ate two cans of sardines and a can and a half of chili. Then i had to walk the 2 miles back to my house arriving promptly at 7 am.

All in one trunk? Just how many "new guys" were there?

There were three vehicles and six to each. All were suvs so we had some room but i was ontop of one guy and another on me. Two guys couldn't fit in the back, so they had to sit on eachother's lap in one of the other seats.

Delt pledges go to chapter meetings -- unless they're "Ritual" meetings which many chapters have once a month.

Don't even think about calling Delt a joke.

In fact, it's offensive to call anyones fraternity or sorority a joke.

I have never heard of pledges being allowed to go to chapter meetings. Our are allowed to go to normal meetings, but not chapter, and we sure as hell don't allow them in the chapter room before they are initiated.

I am still in a fraternity, and always will be. I don't care to discuss affiliation....but i'm sure you can figure it out if you look around.

Pledges only go to pledge meetings, after initiation they are to go to chapter meetings. And yes, you are only allowed into the chapter room after initiation.

You don't care to discuss affiliation? To me it's not the fact that you're in a house, it's WHAT house you're in that matters. But you have made a point that you are a SAE, but what's with all of the name changes ( SAETX, georgewallace ) ?

Don't really see what you are trying to say...but oh well. They blocked my first two names or something like that and they wouldn't work, so I just made random names.

That's not true in all fraternities. Delt is a case in point.

The worst I've heard from my campus is some rumor that a certain fraternity makes their pledges carve out a pumpkin around halloween, makes them put it on their heads, then the brothers beat it off with a stick. I can't verify this, but if its true might I be the first to say that would suck some major ass.

Alright time to settle this. In my franternity we hold a very large distinction between "chapter room" and "ritual room." The chapter room is where all members, initiated or not, come to have chapter meetings. A chapter room can be any room in the house provided that it is large enough to hold the meeting. The ritual room, where only initiated brothers are allowed in, is specifically for items used during ritual.

The following aren't rumors. These actually happen here... or at least used to.

One of the frats here made their pledges stand out on the plaza wearing only 2 socks and nothing else - one sock on their foot and the other... well I think you can figure that out. - that frat has since been kicked off campus after a pledge died on a night.

One of the frats brands the pledges with a number on their butts.

One elephant walks

One tapes a handle of vodka to each of the pledges hands and tells them they have to drink it all (they don't have to drink the whole thing, just until they're ridiculously drunk)

One makes the pledges carry around bent nickels in a bag at all times

Another has a "lost your bet" week where the pledges have to do/wear random things - one guy had to have a korean flag on him all week - and they can't shower for a week

Most of the frats do a 7-mile hike up a mountain on a weeknight and everyone has to be at class the next day (they usually don't get back till 7am or so)

Everyone does pushups, situps, etc. in the creek in 20-30 degree weather, even the sororities.

Here are some rumors about my frat - It's a Christian fraternity and so people come up with some weird stuff they think we do. 1. They think we flog/beat the pledges with a whip (we don't) 2. They think we tie them up to a tree as if we're crucifying them (we don't) 3. They think we brand them (we don't... unless they really want to. So far only 3 people in the history of the frat have done so lol)

I've heard that the goats are particularly incensed by pledges who don't use punctuation. This makes them even hungrier.

OK, this is not a rumor - it really happened to a guy I was close friends who as at another university. This frat took groups of pledges (usually 4 at a time) to a goat farm, undressed them to their undies, covered them in honey, tied them to a post, and left them overnight. I know its wrong, but I lmao when he came home the next morning. Just imagining those honey covered men trying to fend off the goats - and god knows what else - cracks me up.

Also, when I was at UTK, I remember someone bringing a naked pledge to the courtyard (the middle of 4 dorms) and tied him to the flag pole and began singing "twinkle twinkle little star". I heard the singing and my friend looked out and screamed "ahhhh yeah that dude is naked!" Needless to say everyone was looking out the windows, and I guess his gf saw him, because she rushed outside and took her sweater off to try to cover him up! Haha!

i dont understand this does the goat eat the pledges underwear they eat anything as far as i know does the goat then lick the honey off of them is this what this haze is about
