Stuff Frat People Like: Back to School

It’s amazing the difference a few years make. Back in our younger days, the end of summer symbolized an end to freedom and had a cataclysmic effect on our happiness. Middle and high school summers were full of stacks of summer reading and dread over the upcoming hours of scholastic captivity. Now, in your years of fraternal excellence, the complete opposite is true.

No matter how you may have spent your summer, be it working or relaxing or even staying in your collegiate town of choice, the beginning of fall is something you’ve eagerly been waiting for. While you may have been happy to be away from the dull responsibility of class for a bit, lets be honest you were ready to get back to the Frat Castle within the first week.

The new year represents a whole new beginning, and it’s always good to set a few goals before you chug that first beer in honor of a fresh start. These goals could be anything from completing your sexual gauntlet of sororities, going out a minimum four nights a week, or even to raising your GPA. Whatever your ambitions may be, I suggest you get started right away to make this year your best yet. And if you’re a senior (like me) this holds doubly true. This is our last chance to make a mark on our universities and frat our undergrad asses off. By all means we will capitalize.

Finally, you will have pledges to answer to your whims once again (“These boots aren’t going to shine themselves!”). A whole slew of gorgeous freshmen girls will be gracing your sororities on campus (too easy). Kickoff to another amazing college football season is just around the corner (though I don’t plan on remembering the games). I could go on all day about why a new year is great, but I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know.

The summer has ended, brothers, and we are on the cusp of a year so full of debauchery and blatant disregard to our livers that our mothers are literally fearing for our lives. We only get three and a half years of fratting (three if you’re a spring pledge/aka pussy), and by God we’re going to make them the best we can. When you pour that first glass of whiskey, chug that first beer, or toss that first ping pong ball into a cup, remember the repetitiveness of your summer and remember to enjoy every moment of some of the greatest years of our lives.

      Today my father asked me, “What booze are you bringing to school?”

      Neither of us have shown any concern about getting school supplies.

      ^Bro, you and your father are frat as fuck. I’m amazed at the fact that there are fraternity men out there that are worried about partying supplies before school supplies.

    Sounds like your summers sucked dick in HS, I had summers in Charleston, getting ready for football season, and the classic Texas tradition of Two-A-Days, complete with scrimmages vs worthless scrub teams… And what the fuck is summer reading?

      as we speak OldSouthPancakeHouse is sitting in a dark room wearing his lettermans jacket and watching varsity blues and friday night lights on repeat.

      What is that supposed to mean? Because he didn’t know what summer reading was nor had the common sense to assume what it may happen to be?..

      I went to an all male Prep school. I looked forward to going back in the fall. I think the Percentage of Graduates who joined Fraternities after is like 87% or something. I think around 80% of our faculty was greek in college too.

      Summer reading is reading that is done in the summer. OldSouthPancakeHouse was probably too busy fucking the sleeve of his favorite letterman jacket to realize this.

      I mean, believe it or not, college athletes come from high school football teams that have two-a-days. But, let’s have a small group discussion about not knowing what summer reading is. It’s goddamn self explanatory. Regardless, I never fuckin’ had two a days, and I doubt Old Mancake House did either. Just another nerd on the internet trying to look cool to a bunch of fuckin’ other nerds he’ll never meet.

      ^Sorry we have a two pike troll limit on this site. They are RushPike69 and the Piker. If they do slip up, then don’t worry son, you may make varsity soon enough.

      Motion to bench RushPike69 for underperformance the past few weeks and see if BlazersKhakisNattys has enough game for the big leagues. Besides, it would get rid of RushPike69 for awhile.

    4 years? At the rate I’m going I won’t graduate until my 6th or 7th year

      You might want to take an 8th year to figure out the whole they’re/their concept.

      You fucking moron. I’m not the grammar police but they’re called doctors. Which I’m assuming you won’t be one.

      Doctors are overrated. And I’m going for a 4 year degree which is going to take me 7 years. Mississippi Fratstar, you are really fucking stupid considering you didn’t read the part that said, “At the rate I’m going…” Cheese dick.

      ^ This. My slam’s old man is a doctor in a family clinic. He encourages her brother to abort pre-med and try a different path. Apparently there’s some sort of presidential healthcare thing going on that’s going to give doctors the big democrat dick in the butt.
