Black Greeks....

Last year fall I was a freshman at TAMU-Commerce, and I didn't know anything about black Greeks or the other Greeks until I got to college...Since my mom had grown up in Nacodoges she knew all about the Greeks...She tells me all of the time that she is my biggest supporter...But she will not pay for me to HBCU or to be a Black Greek...I understand that yes if I decide to pledge I'm gonna get hazed...But how can I tell the person that is suppose to be my biggest supporter that this is something that I really like for you support me with....

Second the sorority I want to join just got a new group of girl and one of them is a really good friend of mine... I feel that if I join the sorority that she is in that she's gonna be harder on me... Than the other girls...

But will you really have time to pledge with remedial English and appointments for tutoring at the campus writing center?

QFP - there is so much wrong with this post beyond grammar and English, where does one begin?

Who ever said that parental support = parental bill-footing? Many people pay for their sorority/fraternity experience on their own - even those whose parents are/were supportive of their decision to join.

You may have actually had to *gasp* step away from the interwebz and *gasp* ask people that you actually know in the org you were interested in.

Crazy I know.

But they'll be meaner and will haze you harder than people you don't know who aren't in the chapter/org of interest.
