I think it’s atrocious. Part of being Greek is honoring your founding principles and treasuring ritual. Why then, did they perform a ritual on camera? No, we don’t ask questions about politics or the economy during rush. It’s not a job interview. And we’re not that shallow. Sure how a woman presents herself at recruitment parties can have an effect on her membership status, but it’s very low on the totem pole. Nobody drinks (at least not technically) during the recruitment period.

I just don’t understand why these women would try to belittle the Greek system just for a reality TV show. If a British university wants a sorority that badly, Panhellenic has 26 amazing chapters that would gladly colonize. I’m an Alpha Gamma Delta, and we were founded as an international women’s fraternity. Still founding chapters in Canada.

I agree with the atrocious comment. I’m appalled by whatpeople think of sorority women, and the stereotypes that have come about. TV shows that portray the lies, is something no one should be watching or gaining knowledge from.

I’ve never seen the show, but I can only imagine. Most portrayals of Greek life in pop culture are GROSSLY out of line with the norm…at least what I experienced. I was president of my sorority (Alpha Chi Omega), and I listened to Interpol and Death Cab and was a brunette with a pixie cut and a penchant for NPR. I also graduated fourth in my class. Not at all what pop culture portrays as the “typical sorority girl.”

Rubyroad10: I’m an Alpha Chi, too! I was also president! So great to find out, not too many of us on here.
