I must say that there were very few women with technical majors in my chapter. We had a few bio majors and they had a very hard time. The time commitment was just too great for them to go to school, work (which we all did), and get wonderful grades in their major. Some superwomen can do that, but most people cannot.

I have a secret to confess. I pledged young. Very young. Very very young. I was part of a program that allowed students to skip the last 3-5 years of school (depending on the student) and go to college. The program director forbade us for joining sororities and fraternities. I'm sure you can understand why. Other than the sometimes improper environment in greek houses (we were good girls, though. honest!), ones grades were likely to suffer. And I agree with him. If I had to advise an Early Entrance Program student today, students for whom academics are the primary focus, I would suggest that they stay away from social sororities and frats on my old campus and maybe join a professional one. The few professional ones I knew about at my old school had very few social activities (if any) and were primarily networking groups and ways to improve your application to grad school. Some of the young students went that route and it didn't pose any threat to their grades. But as for the average sorority and fraternity member at my school, I am sorry to say that grades more often than not slipped.

That being said, I think that is one of the big reasons technical majors at my school don't join social greek organizations.
