Should I join or not?

Hello everyone, I am wondering if it is too late for me join try to join a fraternity.

I'm 24 and i have been in the military since i graduated high school and i have about 1 and 1/2 left on my contract untill i get out. I started going to school last this spring. I am also married and have a daughter. So i'm wondering if 1) am i too old? 2) is having a family going to be a problem as far as time and other requirements?

1) Depends on school/chapter 2) You will need a lot of time.

The thing is, do you really want to join a group of 18-21 year olds, whom you will probably have very little in common. You also probably won't go to mixers since you have a kid and are married (probably).

It depends on the type of organization you're trying to pursue.
