I just heard of another frat death is Tx... I have never been in a sororiety, nor do I particularly even like the idea behind them...seems elitist and even racist to me. Can anyone explain why hazing takes place or drinking to death? Are the young pledges told they have to keep drinking? Is there real abuse? Why would anyone want to join so badly that they allow themselves to be treated this way? The deaths of late finds me shaking my head again. I guess I dont get it because I am more a loner and would not jump through hoops to join any group, even as a teen. So i dont understand why anyone would. None of my.kids are "follow the crowd" kids either...i do know that frats/sororities differ, but dont they all have a Hell Week? If you bothered to answer or comment, thanks!
