Exactly. Percentage.

If there are more IFC/NPC chapters, and a higher percentage of them do nothing but party, it would not be a stretch to say that by this reasoning, twice as many IFC/NPC chapters do nothing but party as compared to non-IFC/NPC.

2 of 5 non-IFC/NPC chapters only party. 7 of 15 IFC/NPC chapters do.
Thus, 47% of IFC/NPC chapters have just been acused of doing nothing but partying and not caring about their standards.

Um, only by your math...

I can make up numbers too: 1 out of a hundred NonIFC chapters party 4 out of 3 hundred IFC chapters party... NOW 1.33% of ALL IFC CHAPTERS have been accused of partying!

Seriously... you're taking this to a new level of overreaction.

Throw in one of your classic faggoty insults such as, "You have the mental capacity of an amoeba,"......and you have the perfect cliche Starang21 post. Congratulations.

I think it also has to do with the attitude of the "accepting" group (i.e. whites) toward those being "accepted" (in this case, Asians).

That's really nice. I like your creed

Brobuzz,
You are reading WAYYYY too much into my posts, lol.

I am NOT saying that NPC/NIC organizations aren't active on my campus. What I am saying is that I see the same few people from each organization out at philanthropy events...not a slew of the 100+ people in the chapter. GW's SigEp is one of the best SigEp chapters in the country and I respect them for it. GW's ADPi is also excellent.

My interaction with those organzations was NOT just rushees like you assumed. I saw them before, during, and after they were pledging all BEFORE I even thought about joining my own organization (I pledged in the Spring).

I honestly think you are blowing this way out of proportion. Nowhere did I say that all NPC/NIC organizations are bad...in fact if you look at the missions of ALL Greek organizations you usually have something along the lines of sisterhood/brotherhood, service, academic excellence.

When I only see the same 10 people from NPC/NIC organizations out at events, it makes me wonder greatly. Additionally, many organizations send their pledges instead, so the members aren't even participating. I have some very good friends who are in NIC/NPC organizations who are just as committed to their organizations as I am committed to my own.

You blew my post way out of proportion and assumed many things based either past experiences or preconcieved notions about what people "imply" in their posts.

I strongly encourage you to take a better look at my posts before you assume things, as you will cause unnecessary stress for yourself.

I like seeing that you still ain't changed, lol. Fighting the good? fight

Topic?

Why question anyone's reasons for joining their organization. It comes down to they did what made them happy, and I don't know that anyone has any right to JUDGE them for it. If they wanted to party and that's why they joined, cool. If they wanted so support a specific community? Also cool. One sounds way loftier, but it's all about connecting with other people on some level anyway.

Sometimes it has got to make you think though....

Thanks, I just realized that I misidentified "The Spirit of Sigma Chi" as the creed. I went back and edited it and included the whole "spirit". It's still one of my favorites.

Some people are curious about it, and I've encountered a couple of challenges, but for the most part, everyone's been really cool

Around here, most white people don't really know much about BGLOs and don't recognize my letters anyway, so they don't pay any attention. With people who do know - black or white or whatever - it really depends on where I am what kind of looks I get. I think a lot of times people think I don't know what it is I'm wearing ...
