Well, bad news for new college freshmen seeking to become the new Fall recruits for Frats and Sororities on campus. In a move to discourage hazing and alcohol abuse on campus, school administrators are banning frat recruitment and rush for the coming school year. So far, Princeton University (read it here) based in New Jersey and the University of South Carolina (USC) (read more) have made it official on their campus.



Personally I think the move is appropriate. I have nothing against frats, but it is very unimaginable what some of these frats make their new recruits do in order to pledge, and for some reason, these new college students are willing to go above and beyond to meet these demanding requirements. As a new college grad, I personally made a commitment to myself never to join any of the frats because I did not want to live by any one's rule besides the school. Yet, I still had a lot of fun and even attend some of their parties on campus.

My suggestion for new college students is to focus on their studies and if you are joining frat, join at your own will. The reason is, many of the frats will deny you or even kick you out if your grad falls below their minimum requirement. This was exactly the case for my roommate who was trying to impress his so called "brothers" and spent his entire day and night trying to please them in order to pledge. Unfortunately, he went against my advise to spend more time on his homework and get good grades that he ended up being placed on probation and denied by the very same frat for low GPA. Joining frat to impress somebody or to get close to someone will absolutely lead to disaster and make you do things you would not normally do. So, only join at your own will and make it known to yourself what is acceptable and what is not, and any deviation from that, you should reconsider whether to stay or leave.

For those who have no desire to join frats but still want to have fun, form your own crew of people you know and trust and organize your own parties (believe me people will come).
