Most Hated GDI of the Week: Administration

Behind every successful Greek system in the country there is a conniving, pure evil entity pulling the puppet strings to their favor. While we as organizations understand the reason we exist (read: partying to an unsafe extent on a regular basis) this diabolical institution throws out garbage like “social probation” and “dry rush” to quell our belligerent tendencies. I’m speaking, of course, about the dreaded administration that oversees us all, and makes our pursuit of a good time just a little more difficult.

I’m sure a few schools out there may have a decent, Greek-friendly system, but for the majority of the country the battle between fraternities and the campus bigwigs is an ongoing struggle. Naturally, it’s a completely unfair fight, and we face the hammer of the law consistently from these fiends. I’m all for ensuring safety and people not getting arrested. That’s just fine. But I’ll never understand why some administrations take a personal vendetta against the Greeks they oversee. There’s a fine line between dangerous risks fraternities (take ziplines from the roof for instance) and a totally normal night of fraternal extravagance. I don’t see police officers making arrests for jaywalking, so why would administration feel the need to stifle our daily habits?

I’ve seen what’s happened recently in schools like Texas and South Carolina, so I know I’m not alone on this one. We are, as a whole, being fucked by the long dick of the law, and we must stand together to prevent these gross overpunishments. Between all the social limitations, suspensions, and “double secret probation,” we are at a pivotal crossroads over which we must persevere. My advice? Keep doing exactly what you’ve been doing. They can rip the charter from my cold, dead fingers if they want it that badly, but I refuse to sit idly by and let this obvious discrimination of Greeks continue. We are the future leaders of this country, and the current leaders of our respective campuses. No organization holds even a sliver of the sway that Greeks as a whole have, and it’s about time the admins began taking note. I don’t care what letters you slap on your chest, in the war between Greeks and administration, there is only one brotherhood.

And to any administrators that somehow stumble across this column, I have a message for you as well. And no, it isn’t a “Fuck you,” believe it or not. All I can say is: lighten up. You were in college once too, and I bet damn sure you’d still be able to pull a decent kegstand if you tried. Most fraternities have existed for over a century; 100+ years full of blackouts, slampieces, and good old fashioned tradition. We’re not going to let you change the way we do things now, so don’t even bother.

    Our Greek Advisor D-Bagged then tried to pay alumni dues 15 years later when she got the job… when she was called out by the sorority she called hazing hotline on them… Needless to say, this is a major problem.

    For being a site that certainly loves to bitch about people feeling like they’re entitled to things, this article was full of bitching and feeling like you’re entitled to things.

      Although I don’t agree with campus administrations being unfairly biased toward Greeks, I agree. Certain administrators on some campuses do want to stamp out the Greek system, but instead of complaining about “rights” and waving signs like a bunch of GDIs, there are much better and classier ways to approach this age-old issue.

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen you agree with an article. I fail to see how asking the administration to remove the boot from our throat equates to being entitled.

      Czar, I do agree with many of the articles posted. I just don’t post in those ones because why post stuff that basically pats the writer on the back? Just nice move it and get on with your life.

      Also, it’s a thinly veiled if at all adolescent “fuck the police” article. “We’re in fraternities, we deserve to have a good time!” “You used to be in college, stop spoiling our fun!”

      Seriously, it sounds like a retarded class president letter of a principle of a high school. At the end of the day, there is no reason why it’s in a university’s best interest to let underage drinking and episodes of public debauchery run rampant. Just take the blows the administration gives, and keep doing your thing. We get it, school admins suck. Life goes on.

      I’ll agree with CandC on one point, whining is NF. This is a classic liberal vs. conservative issue. Administrators do not just hate Greeks because they’re fucking GDIs, but as liberals it’s because they see our organizations as the last bastions of conservatism on campus. Their goal is to eradicate conservatives from campus. What we need to be doing is not whining, but doing something about it. How is it that the majority of our elected officials have been Greek, yet nothing has been done to protect our freedom of association rights. Remember this when it’s our turn to run this country. Thank you, I will now step off my soap box.

      I know who it is you inane dolt. You are probably aware as well that the character is played by Jeremy Piven who is FaF. Secondly, he was an administration figure against an illegitimate “fraternity” made up mostly of r tards. As funny and quotable as the movie is, it hardly relates. Now, sit the fuck down.

      Not “FaF” enough to save Pike from the complete and utter embarrassment they put on themselves and the rest of the greek community.
