The only person who seems to be disagreeing is you, but you're not saying anything different than what we're saying. Are you deliberately being contrary?

The OP presented the idea that the school scheduled two sororities together and two fraternities together unintentionally. Everyone operated off of that idea.

You brought up a counterpoint of "what's wrong with single-sex mixers?" when 33girl acknowledged that they should know which groups are which.

You were reassured by many that that was not what the OP was talking about, but if that were the case, there'd be no problem, and thus no point to this thread.

ASTalumna06 went back to what we were talking about.

You assumed once again that this must mean she can't possibly have considered that naraht doesn't know the motives behind the pairings. Really? We covered this already!

We acknowledge that. If they intended to pair sororities and fraternities together, then fabulous! Wonderful! That could be the case here. But it's humorous to think that they mixed them up, that's how it was presented to us, and that's what we're discussing.

For "social" I read "mixer". *puts on dunce cap*

I'm still curious as to why the school was setting up these socials - regardless of whether they intended to set up a mixer with two opposite-sex groups or a social event with two same-sex groups.

The confusion between AEPi and AEPhi strikes a particular chord with me (as an AEPhi) ... when we first became an AEPhi colony, random people kept coming up to us and asking when AEPi had gone coed (fraternities going coed at my school is not without precedent), or were we some kind of little sister group for AEPi, or what. I've said it before ... you'd think that people at arguably the top science and engineering school in the world would be able to tell the difference between pi and phi. But I digress.

With good reason. Who's up for a GC choral rendition?

No offense, WhiteRose1912, but I'm not arguing with you or your statements. I've got a problem with one person here and everyone else is just fine. My comments aren't meant for you. If you'll go back and read just her posts you'll see how illogical they are. That's my problem. She takes one side and then the other of the argument and then says she knows what the OP meant when, in fact, the OP has never come back and said what was meant. Understand?

OP Here...

Just woke up from a dream about a semi-post apocalyptic college life to find semi-post apocalyptic greekchat... I've been sick the last couple of days so I hadn't come back to the thread...

The original post was intended as the school is clueless enough to get its greek letters confused as to what is a fraternity and what is a sorority and thus *humorously* gets things confused enough to schedule two fraternities together and two sororities together.


Now that I've posted, can we go to everyone being mad at me?
