I don't want to be too critical about the process because admittedly, I don't know much about it as neither my husband nor I "went greek" in college but...I can't help but be concerned about the process and the toll in might take this semester.
From what I understand, the pledges have to be available all hours of the day and night and perform lots of chores, driving, etc. I do know they have some time set aside for studying but I can't imagine it is enough given the rigor of the school. Now my son did assure me there is NO alchohol hazing involved, so that is a big plus. Aside from that, I'm just concerned about the time commitment, sleep deprivation, stress about school work and the length of the process which I understand can be up to 8 weeks. Is that possible?
I'm really not an overly protective parent (aside from this post) so I guess I was just looking for some words of wisdom from some of you parents who have gone through this before. This is our oldest child, so all this fraternity stuff is a mystery. I'm really hoping the payoff is worth it.
