no doubt you've heard and witnessed things that formulated this opinion. if any pledges want a frank opinion from a greek alum, find me for a candid chat on a chairlift or at a ski event sometime. I experienced the extremes, good and bad, of the greek system. whether you should join really depends on the type of person you are. honestly ask yourself, am I a strong leader or a follower?
if you're a follower, the people who join the greek system for the wrong reasons will decompose your soul. what sort of guys are they logically recruiting when the recruitment activity is beating a car to pieces with an assortment of weapons? in the pursuit of healing from the extreme bad I experienced from those followers in the greek system, I found skiing. well . . . two big mountain legends I met by destined chance at a motel pool told me skiing would help my injury.
if you look me up on the composites, I have short hair because I gave my hair to charity on philanthropy day of recruitment. two years as sorority treasurer helped me get elected to student body treasurer, business manager during a state legislative year . . . now there is a MIP exemption in Montana for underage victims of assault reporting the crime or more importantly for victims seeking medical attention. the MIP exemption is also for the underage friends helping the victim to the hospital.
Back to the thread subject. Griz rule! U of M allows you to ski everday and get your MBA at night. UM also boasts a year long world class Entertainment Management program with late afternoon classes and class all day Saturday, which is the busiest day of the week for skiing crowds anyway.
