OMG: Looking back, joining a uW Greek society was the worst decision of my undergraduate career.

  2. Last winter I attended a recruitement event out of curisoity (for one fo those "Greek" organizations). It was a festival of obnoxious persons trying to convince me their lives were better than mine. Also apparently they get to decide who is cool enough to join and you have to pay them every term. Needless to say I didn't come back.

    1. And do you want to know which group is even worse in my opinion?

      The goddamn motherfucking obnoxious cockgobbling fuckheads in UW's Young Liberals.

      I support the Liberal party but holy fucking shit, they are so fucking annoying. Every single one of them. They make me want to dip my left leg in kerosene and set it ablaze.

      Do you know how you will know if somebody is in the Young Liberals? They'll probably mention it to you right at the start of your conversation with them, but you won't notice because you will be too freaked out by them jacking each other off to a picture of Justin Trudeau's hair.

      Holy shit, just fuck them ten times over.

    2. 3a - this is such an extreme response to something that is not relevant to that which is being discussed.

      I totally agree with you though. they are really annoying.

    3. 3a/b yeah, they're so self-righteous. Honestly, every time I consider voting Liberal all it takes is 10-15 minutes listening to the crap that comes out of the UWYL, and I'm right back to voting Conservative.

  7. I don't need someone to tell me that I am good enough to be among people like them or not. Its just trying so hard to be cool, I cant stand it.

  8. I'm curious, what was so bad about it? (Other than having to pay to join a bunch of people who decided if you were "cool" enough)

  9. I like how people at Canadian universities try to keep making it a thing. Like, it's not gonna happen, you go to a public university, also you go to Waterloo.

    Stop kidding yourselves.

  11. I went to there recruitment events with the sole purpose to get laid. That didn't work out but they did think I was cool enough for them. Then I thought hey why can't I just be your friend without paying you to be my friend. But with that thought I started comparing them to prestitutes. Later that week I went to a strip club got laid and made a few new friends. So I guess they did do something good for me.

  12. All the frats seem to be people trying to pretend they are more outgoing than they actually are, and that it will help them pick up girls.

  13. I never respond to things like this but I felt like all these awful comments needed to be addressed. I don't think there's a problem with wanting to make a greater contribution to the university community, and local and national philanthropies (the focus of Greek organizations, along with leadership and scholarship- not getting laid or 'paying for friends'). But then again, I came from a different university with exponentially more school spirit, and noticed more kind and involved people there so I have different values than many of the students here who don't even express even the simplest forms of common courtesy, such as saying excuse me or holding open doors. I feel like I'm constantly surrounded by self-absorbed academic types who can't see beyond themselves and their text books or take a second to connect with others.

    I'm not saying that everyone here is like that (I have met some awesome people at UW in various organizations) because I don't want to make a blanket judgement call based on my own general experiences- and you shouldn't either. Simply because you had a bad experience with a Greek organization doesn't mean that they are of little value to others.

    Yes, I am a member of a Greek organization so I have a biased view, but I'm not a member of various other organizations on campus and I don't go around bashing them with informed and narrow-minded opinions.

    I thought this site was about 'missed connections', not increasing negativity in our school community...

    2. Cry harder. It's paying for friends, end of story.

    3. No, this site isn't about 'missed connections'; fuck off until you actually know what it's for.

    4. @b +1

      @15: Doesn't look like any greek society has ever been about "leadership and scholarship", just a connotative notion of what friendship is supposed to be like. I've met people in fraternities and sororities, they're all pretty absent and uncreative, I wouldn't pay to be friends with any of them.

    5. @.a. Haha
      @b. Maybe for some people, but most of us have plenty of friends outside of the clubs we belong to on campus.
      @c. Regardless of what it's for, no need to be a jerk.
      @d. Do some research, read the mission statements, clearly you're talking to the wrong people.

  15. Greeks: when you can't make it in the world on your own but have money to buy friends to support your loser ass.

  17. I don't have anything against them, infact some of my friends are in them and they are really nice guys, but I just don't see the charm, and not close enough to them to ask them why they do what they do.

  18. Hey, to each their own. It never appealed to me, but I have plenty of friends who joined Greek Societies and loved it. Whatever brings you happiness, really. :)

  19. I'm a little confused. Why can there be clubs for Chinese students, arab students etc but not Greek students? Also from the amount of reply this post have I'm surprised at the number of Greek students in our school. 2 years and I only met 1 student from Greece.
