There is one thing that puzzles me....it seems to me that the families with students in greek organizations don't seem to have the need to criticize those who do not choose to join, while those whose children do not choose to join seem to be much more judgmental.
Actually, I have seen such criticism -- although it more often comes from students than parents. I have seen it in two forms:
1. If you don't go Greek, you will have no social life on this campus. You will spend four years of Saturday nights in your room reading stuff on Web sites.
2. If you don't go Greek, you won't have a future because you won't have the leadership experiences and connections you need to get a decent job.
