I don't think there are any male Gcers from LSU here to help with KA leg policy. sorry. Best bet is to get your dad to contact someone and find out. And like I said the sooner the better.

When I hear someone have that much negativity to their environment, I usually suspect someone of playing poorly with others and having adjustment issues.
And this. Frankly, what I suspect is someone who all of his life has heard comparisons from his parents between "home" and where they live now. Often in those comparisons, "home" takes on a somewhat romanticized patina, with the the good parts coming to the fore (and being exaggerated), the bad parts being forgotten and stereotypes on all sides being reinforced. When I read statements like the OP's, I tend to think there's a somewhat skewed, unrealistic expectation going on of what the South is like.

GetMeOutOfHere, you aren't coming off as a douche at all. You're coming across as someone who's enthusiastic, who may have an image in your mind that isn't quite realistic, and who as result might be trying just a little too hard.

To the OP, I'm from Texas and have traveled all over the U.S. and some countries abroad. To your credit, I think you're right in your assumption that certain regions have more self-absorbed people than other areas of our country. At any rate, give LSU a shot without going in with preconceived stereotypes about the fraternities. You just might find your own fit.

Really? I lived in Baton Rouge for 17 years and have lived in the northeast and southwest. My brother and sister in law who had lived in Louisiana/Mississippi their entire lives moved to California a year ago for work and have meet the most wonderful and gracious people as I have in all the places I have lived. Sounds as though someone else is a little self conscious.

No fooling. People from Texas are interesting, to say the least.



Born in TN, raised in NorCA, schooled in SoCA and AZ, live part time in CO. "I love everybody"! (would link to Lyle's album but that's pushing it, even I know that).

To AOPiA and AzTheta, I've been in Mississippi for a long time now. Maybe I need to "get out" more, but, at any rate, I'll always be a Texan. To our credit or discredit, you know we can't help it!
That being said, I do so hope the OP will have a positive experience at LSU, coming from so far away. Love you girls!
