Well, at a school like that, there are usually some older girls in the sororities too, so it all shakes out. My school had a few fraternity members who were 23+. They usually had steady GDI girlfriends and had joined the fraternity/went to mixers to hang out with their brothers - not hit on the 18 year old girls.

I'm glad a non-Greek high school student was able to chime in

How many of these threads do we have to read? seriously? do they think they are going to get a different reaction from everyone cause they are special?

and how do they know who to listen to when there is so many people saying different things? if its a traditionally southern school which we presume to be traditional white fraternities, why not just let EE-BO or EW take the question and nail with one answer instead of everyone arguing. Pay attention people.

Yes, in everyone's fuzzy warm opinion, everyone no matter age, race, whatever else, should get into a fraternity. And some places those things don't matter. But some places they do, so if you don't know what you are talking about, don't pump these guys up for let down.

Seriously, I wasn't aware that we had to read any of them.

As long as you apply all the teachings of your organization (our organization teaches the Scouting principles) in your life, age doesnt matter.

More power to SRB and all the greek fraternities whose pursose is to serve.

Sorry it took me so long to find my way over here.

The past couple years in particular we have had one or two older guys a year maybe (a lot of times about the same age as the seniors who came straight from HS) get bids after coming back from Iraq. I can't think of anyone in my time at the fraternity older than about 21 who pledged except for the military guys though. I'm pretty sure there may be houses who take older guys, particularly if they would have fit in with the top houses if not for age, but my particular house isn't one of them.

My inclination would be to say, hell, you have nothing to lose by rushing, but I wouldn't go in with real high hopes planning to be in a top house.

Why are you giving fraternity advice if you're in high school?
