Emory University Frat Rankings and Reps

NYCStudent4NYCStudent4 Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
Could an Emory student give a summary of the fraternity rankings and reputations? I'm a transfer student and I'm interested in fall rush.
Also, I know that Emory is mostly a Spring rush school, how difficult is it to get a bid in the fall?

    If you're a transfer Spring rush might be worth waiting for. Fall rush is mainly for guys who are already somewhat connected with a particular frat or just barely missed getting a bid in the spring. Plus, it's a lot nicer to have a bigger pledge class (which you'll have in the Spring).
    As a junior on campus here are the general reps of the frats:

    Top Tier:

    1. Sigma Chi - Lots of people on campus have problems with these dudes but they're studs. Most of them are either athletes or rich international kids. Girls consider them the best looking dudes on campus but some are self-centered and douchey.
    2. SAE - Very big 2015 spring pledge class with solid dudes. Have a pool which means some of the best parties when the weather is nice
    3. KA - Southern fraternity with good looking guys. They kind of do their own thing but girls like going to KA because the parties are fun. 2015 pledge class was probably the 2nd best on the row.
    4. ATO - Very well liked by the school, faculty and students Competitive rush process. The younger guys are great with girls and involved on campus. ATO's downfall is that many older guys dislike the fraternity and aren't involved at all.

    Middle Tier:
    5. ZBT - Trying to move away from their jappy Long Island reputation. Good with girls and have guys who are involved on campus. Losing their house to Chi Phi which is significant.
    6. AEPI - Jewish, Long Island kids. Most people on campus have a problem with them because of their arrogance. Honestly not bad dudes but they lost some guys to Sig Chi during rush this year.

    Bottom Tier:
    7. Kappa Sig - Smoke a lot, some of the brothers have a drug problem. Their house is actually the biggest on the row but it's in a bad location and they have trouble bringing people out. Some cool brothers but they also tend to have a lot of random guys in the brotherhood because they have to fill their house.
    8. Pike - Have a terrible reputation on campus which is kind of unwarranted. The older guys are cool and involved on campus (especially within the B-School). Last 3 pledge classes have been all over the place though.
    9. Chi Phi- Nice guys just starting a fraternity. Because they needed to fill their house they gave bids to a lot of random guys the last 2 years. Girls tend to skip Chi Phi Mixers because they're not very outgoing and social. Getting the best house on the row next year so that should be interesting.
    10. SigEp - Not really a frat. More of a club. Nice guys who are trying to get a house but I haven't really heard of Sig Ep having any sort of mixers or events.
