is there someone out there who would be willing to provide info on each frat at emory the way others had provided info on the sororities?
and could you also provide info on each dorm--the goodm the bad, the ugly?

much appreciated!

    I guess this is similar to this thread:

    What benefits/drawbacks are there to joining a fraternity? Is it generally worth it, or just a waste of time?
  • SherBearSherBear Registered User Posts: 221 Junior Member
    i appreciate your responding.
    would you be so kind as to provide the link to the referred to thread?
  • jmw123jmw123 Registered User Posts: 345 Member
    Oh, lol. I was just saying my question was similar to this thread, so I'd just post it here. Wasn't an actual link. Sorry.

    Won't the two new freshmen dorms being constucted on eagle row be finished next fall?
  • NorCalDadNorCalDad Registered User Posts: 753 Member
    For all incoming freshmen, there will be plenty of time for you to get to know the fraternities (and sororities) much better. Recruitment does not occur until the Spring semester. About 30% of students affiliate with the Greek system at Emory.

    Meanwhile, see this link for more info. regarding Emory's fraternities and sororities: http://www.emory.edu/GREEKS/index.html

    of course there's plenty of time.
    these queries helped to shift the focus and alleviate some of the waiting energy.
    now that my S got accepted, we've got plenty to think about.
    thanks or the link.

    aepi- jewish frat. lot of obnoxious long island jews.
    ato- decent enough, kind of square. pride themselves on their gpa.
    beta- drug frat, cool guys tho.
    chi phi- kind of a conglomerate.
    dtd- "dorks that drink"... did not have rush this year, got their house torn down last year
    ka- redneck frat... stereotype isnt completely true though.
    kappa sig- off campus frat, decent mix of people, but small and kinda dull.
    phi delt- cool guys, big conglomerate. smokers. big pledge class every year.
    pi kappa phi- boring as hell, off campus.
    sae- southern/international frat... cool guys, their sophomore class is boring as hell.
    sig chi- soccer players... kinda preppy but by and large cool guys.
    sig nu- steroid pumped baseball playing jerks (mostly).
    sig ep- boring off campus frat.
    zbt- the nice jewish guys.

    plus there are 2 unrecognised off campus frats, APES and pike. apes is just aepi but with more cocky long island jews, not sure about pike.

    hope that helped.

    interesting and cool screen name.
    today is james joyce's bday.
    has recruitment begun yet?
    will u rush?
    if so, where'd u be interested in?
    do guys live in the houses?
    r they nice?

    thanks for the candid take on the frats.
    do both guys and girls vie the frats similarly?
    i really appreciate ur time!
  • dgeblldgebll Registered User Posts: 478 Member
    For the record, that's probably the most stereotypical description that I've ever seen. Almost none of those houses live up to those stereotypes.

    Don't believe what you read, just wait and make your own decision.
  • elvellonelvellon Registered User Posts: 129 Junior Member
    regarding housing, I live in Complex, and it's generally nice- tons of people live in Complex or Harris, so you'll probably be close to some friends. The downside is the longer walk to get anywhere other than the library.
    But next year I think the new residence halls will be open. I'd suggest trying to get into those.

    Did anyone else find daedalus' description disturbing? One of the things I liked about Emory was the diversity and open mindedness. I found his descriptions of his fellow students to be racist and close minded. Very disturbing. Is this what Emory students are like? I am not Jewish, but am now wondering if there is a lot of anti-Semitism on campus? It's just not something I have come in contact with in my life.
  • MBJMBJ Registered User Posts: 706 Member
    band.....ignore it
  • 2hot2handle2hot2handle Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
    anti-semitism? is that a joke? everyones jewish, and if you arent, you will undoubtedly have jewish friends.

    and i happen to agree with the stereotypes of the frats. all of my friends are in sig chi, sig nu and aepi and theyre the ****, but, they are categorized....

    like is said about hte sororities, you have to make your own decision and this year, hte pledge classes for every frat are INCREDIBLE and people i expected to be in one frat are in another and its just where you feel comfortable!!!
