—comedian and movie star Will Ferrell
I never thought I would identify so strongly with Will Ferrell, but I feel him so hard on this subject.
The worst decision I made in college was joining a sorority.
The best decision I made was quitting it.
Sororities and Fraternities (whatever else they may do or good or bad) create an in-group, which in turn creates an out-group at the same time. When I was in a sorority I spent most of my time with my “sisters”. I had very few friends outside of the Greek system at NDSU.
We had a bunch of chants about how awesome we were… and some songs about how sh*tty the other sororities were.
I hate things that create an us-them mentality. Hate them hate them hate them. I hate Americans who don’t like foreigners. Also I hated being in the cage that Greek Life is… all your friends are rich white people. ick. Also I didn’t have enough money for that nonsense.
Something I don’t hate: Duolingo. It’s really really really helpful for learning languages. Y’all should try it. Duolingo.com
