It's like GR for adults. Color me unimpressed. The stats were interesting, but the other stuff was merely fluff and opinion.

I hate these kinds of stories. For too many reasons to list. Barf.

The data isn't correct. AOII does not have 190 active chapters. It has 212 chartered chapters, 143 active. 2 planned colonies.

To be fair, the article said only positive things and didn't make derogatory remarks about anyone.

It was a cute, and ultimately harmless, listicle.

If anything, it was also good that they included NPHC groups.

It's not necessarily "positive" to say positive things about only a select few. Some of those categories are also nonsensical.

Yup, this.

Most of this is opinion, and categories like 'Best House' and 'Coolest Symbols' don't help our cause. And how do you pick the 'Best Charity Partnership'? I can't even explain why this is all kinds of wrong.

Plus, the title... ::cringe::
