    Has anyone in this thread heard of the Square Root Club? At the Toot, it was when the square root of your semester GPA was larger than your real GPA. For non-STEM folks, this means your semester GPA was less than 1. For those who took Complex Variables, it could only be worse if your GPA was imaginary.

    I remember helping my fraternity brothers and in some cases pledges either avoid or get out of the square-root club. (In the 80's).

    @StudentsR1st We were just telling our son last week about the test files all the frats had in the late '70s.

    @CollegeGrad79 I thought the bad tests were just as helpful as the good. At some point houses were told requiring pledges to show us their tests and attend study sessions was hazing. It singled out the pledges. We did support each other and sometimes a few houses would work together.
