21. W/ exception of service organizations (APO), they are elitist snobs

Skull & Bones, writ small. You tell me, why don't they have open enrollment like other campus organizations? Students learn to "self govern" and "manage a business" in non-greek organizations. The social "greeks" exist to screen out those who are "different". They are so determined to do this that members are strongly pressured to date/socialize only with other Greeks. There are professional/honorary fraternities which have academic requirements - fine.

Alpha Phi Omega is a coeducational national service organization that provides it members the chance to develop leadership skills through service projects on their campus, in their community and across the nation. While other groups volunteer, making the world a better place is not their primary focus. This is why more than 400,000 students have chosen APO since our founding in 1925.

We are an inclusive group, open to all nationalities, backgrounds and genders, and we welcome you to become part of our amazing organization so that together we can pursue a common goal - leading through service to others.


Joining a social fraternity or sorority greatly limits a student's social interactions to other Greeks. And then there's the whole problem with alcohol, date rape, etc. The most recent report:
Texas Tech Frat Loses Charter Following 'No Means Yes, Yes Means Anal' Display

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/08/texas-tech-frat-no-means-yes_n_5953302.html
The Phi Delta Theta fraternity at Texas Tech University was effectively removed from campus this week by the national office following an unsanctioned party where brothers displayed a "No Means Yes, Yes Means Anal" banner.

On Sept. 19, the Phi Delta Theta fraternity held a hurricane theme party where a "No Means Yes" banner was put up in addition to a display of a woman's genitals around a sprinkler. The national office investigated the incident after photos leaked online and announced Monday it was placing the Texas Tech chapter "in escrow" and removing members involved in organizational violations.

"When reviewing this reprehensible behavior, there was a clear lack of leadership that created an environment that was disrespectful to women,"
