I've never been in one (or college either). It would never have appealed to me to get picked for my looks and race (let's face it, few sororities are mixed race) and money...and I don't like to follow the crowd. But some people who were in them think they were a lot of fun. Since I've never been in one, and the topic came up a few days ago, I'm going to ask here if anyone was in one and if it is as snobby as I perceive it to be (I could be way wrong) or if everyone drinks a lot and if you are told which boys to date and not to date...all the stereotypes you hear, but can't really know about if you have never joined one. If you have/had a child who was in one, do you feel it was good for him/her? How does he/she feel about the experience now? Any feelings about them, negative, positive, or neutral? Any thoughts at all?
