Brethren, Wrap Up Thine Dicks

Posted on 28 August 2014

Alright fraternal brethren, imagine the following scenario, if you will: you and a choice slam-piece are getting all hot and heavy at a party. You’ve stumbled into your room and she’s inching the two of you backwards toward the bed. You’re eying the door, wishing you’d locked it. But it’s too late now. Fuck it, it’ll be […]


Top 5 Hazing Techniques… Online

Posted on 09 October 2013

Society doesn’t give the Brotherhood enough credit. Just like porn paves paths into new technologies, the Brotherhood isn’t far behind either. We might be hated, but we’re fucking innovators. If there’s a will, there’s a way. The brotherhood comes up with some truly ridiculous and incredible ways to challenge – and more often humiliate – […]


Pledge Socials

Posted on 02 April 2013

The hellish semester of pledgeship isn’t all bad. The Brotherhood needs to keep pledges sane, and continue to give them a taste of what’s to come once pledgeship is over. Every once in a while, pledges are rewarded with a #91 Pledge Social.


Rush Preparation

Posted on 14 January 2013

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes? Here’s your backstage access to what fraternities do to prepare for #2 Rush. While most outsiders consider a group of fraternity guys to be lackluster in their preparation skills, the truth is quite the opposite.



Posted on 25 November 2012

It’s that time of the year. Hell week can’t last forever. The Brotherhood says goodbye to Santa’s little helpers. Yet, while pledges are no more, a celebration is in order.  It’s time to initiate.


Pledge Accessories

Posted on 27 October 2012

You don’t think our pledges would walk around empty handed, now do you? Absolutely not. A pledge comes fully equipped with anything and everything that the brotherhood needs.

Fall Pledgeship 101

Posted on 18 September 2012

The honeymoon is over. The bromance that is #2 Rush has come to an end. Reality has set in, much to the dismay of all rushees. No longer does the brotherhood care where you’re from, or how much of a #49 Future Frat Star you may be. The brotherhood rejoices in the return of pledge rides, servants, […]


Pledge Class Pet

Posted on 07 June 2012

Brothers have bestowed upon their inferior pledges numerous responsibilities, yet none can match that of the Pledge Class Pet. In order to legitimize the overall fraternity, the pledgeship process and new member education as a whole, a unique experience must be garnered. There’s no greater way than letting a non-human element lead the way. Whether […]


Parental Problems

Posted on 23 May 2012

It’s one of the hardest hurdles to overcome as a freshman. Convincing your parents to rush and pledge a fraternity is as difficult as it gets. Some are blessed with Greek family traditions, while others are tortured by old school traditionalists. No matter how you were raised, you’re going to run into some form of […]


Living In The House

Posted on 29 April 2012

If a brotherhood created a bucket-list, this would sit right at the top of it. You’re not a true brother, nor have you truly experienced the brotherhood, if you’ve yet to live in the house. It’s the hub of all debauchery, and the home of all-things pledgeship. The bond you’ll create with your fellow in-house […]


Hazing 101

Posted on 02 March 2012

Fraternities in a nutshell encompass all that hazing and partying have to offer. It’s the cold hard facts, and the mountains are as blue as they get. There are numerous forms and fashions, with countless different objectives, dilemmas and situations involved. Whether society agrees with it or not, hazing exists, and it’s as relevant as […]


Alcoholic Pledgeship

Posted on 10 October 2011

With the transition of high school to college comes the expectation of social survival. Your dorm room gets smaller and smaller by the day, all-the-while your social life dwindles. Once you’ve grown a sack and decided to #2 Rush, your alcoholic education begins. You’re not only joining a Brotherhood, you’re entering a semester long class of alcoholic consumption.


Signature Books

Posted on 20 September 2011

When it comes to the Brotherhood, we’re all developing our inner-frat-star status with every day that goes by. Yet, unlike the typical #20 GDI, each and every frat star will be famous one day. In preparation for future celebrity status, the Brotherhood perfects their scribble-skills through the evolutionary concept of Signature Books. Yet, they’re way […]


Cost of Pledgeship

Posted on 10 May 2011

The decision to join a fraternity rivals one of marriage. The options of women, and that of fraternities, are endless. Yet, in the end, only one reigns supreme. The downside? The money, of course. Do I really need to explain what a wife does to your checkbook? You get the point. When it comes to […]


Pledge Master

Posted on 14 April 2011

The Pledge Master serves as the single most important component of fraternal pledgeship. All pledge programs incorporate an exclusive brother who leads each pledge class through their semester-long pledgeship, and eventually into the brotherhood. The ironies and intricacies of the position are truly creative. WARNING: This post is the first of it’s kind. We’re not […]


Underground Fraternities

Posted on 06 April 2011

It’s a sad realization that universities all across the country are cutting down on the sacred tradition that we call hazing. They don’t appreciate the intricacies of the ritual, nor truly understand #41 why we haze. The unfortunate result of society’s trend is a solid kick in the nuts. Fraternities everywhere are being kicked off […]


Big Brothers

Posted on 02 April 2011

Each pledge is given a slight glimmer of hope throughout their semester of hell. While a pledge and his pledge class will become unified in their position against the brotherhood, a small group of brothers will serve as allies for the youngsters. A big brother is a much-needed ally for each pledge. Within the first […]


Pledge Attire

Posted on 28 March 2011

The entire pledging process involves a handful of nuances and rules that are merely made to be a major pain in the ass. From designated driving to serving dinner, the process as a whole incorporates both brotherhood necessity and brotherhood enjoyment. Believe it or not, pledges are used to positively enhance society. To separate those […]


The Future Frat-Star

Posted on 14 March 2011

Ever wonder where the brotherhood originates? I lose sleep over this exact question every night. With every new year comes a brand new batch of collegiate freshman. Fresh out of high school, a new line of guys enter the system to one day take the place of those today. Although pledgeship perfects those who are […]


Awkward Transition

Posted on 26 February 2011

The transition period between Pledge and Brother creates an eloquent awkwardness. It’s truly difficult to explain. For months, a pledge rivals his position as the scum of the earth. The Brotherhood makes life miserable. It’s inevitable that each and every pledge should hold a grudge upon the very brothers they’re fighting so hard to join. […]


Why We Haze

Posted on 02 February 2011

Society consists of an overwhelming amount of anti-hazing douche-bags. Wherever the pre-conceived notions came from, it’s pretty fucking obvious that the haters of hazing can be sourced back to GDI college life. Only those who have experienced all that pledgeship and brotherhood entails can truly comprehend the value and importance of hazing. We’re not talking […]


Anticipation of Pledgeship

Posted on 24 January 2011

Making the transition from high school hot-shot to university frat-star isn’t one of ease. For all you cocky shitheads who think that high school stardom matters, you’re so fucking wrong it’s not even funny. The Brotherhood salivates for pledges like you. There are two sides to the anticipation story. If you’re a freshman about to […]


FAQ: Fraternity Edition

Posted on 16 January 2011

Let’s face it, unless you’re currently in a fraternity, you don’t know shit about one. Seriously, Greek life has and always will remain private and exclusive. And fuck, we like it that way. Well, for all you naive youngsters chomping at the bits to join the greatest unified group of bros in the world, we’re […]


New Year, New Semester, New Pledge Class

Posted on 12 January 2011

Frat stars don’t make resolutions. Why not? Because frat stars live the life of their dreams, and they don’t need to make a bullshit promise to improve what’s already the best. Cocky? Abso-fucking-lutely. The New Year doesn’t represent shit for a bro, only the fact that his liver survived another year of binge drinking, his […]


Taking Advantage of Pledges

Posted on 08 January 2011

Pledgeship remains shitty for many reasons, but one more than any other: the Brotherhood uses their pawns for all they’re worth. Pawns…pledges…same thing. In other words, pledges aren’t pointlessly hazed (well, most of the time). We’re not talking about making a pledge wipe a brother’s ass after he shits. Although that might be productive and […]


Pledgeship Is A Party

Posted on 22 December 2010

With countless hazing horror stories plaguing all that is Greek life, some tend to forget how kick-ass a semester of pledgeship can be. Ask anyone who has endured it; it’s worth every second. With the New Year right around the corner, let’s not forget to count our blessings. For all the newly initiated pledges, welcome […]


Anti-Hazing Douchebags

Posted on 28 November 2010

Also known as GDI’s, Anti-Hazing Douchebags are all those opposed to the sacred ritual of hazing a pledge’s balls off. Who would ever disagree with such time-honored tradition? But hey, we can always embark upon ropes courses, trust falls and pledge class dinners to build unity, right? Fuck no, that’s not an option. All those […]


Brother Hazing

Posted on 16 November 2010

For all you naive folk out there, pledges aren’t the only ones getting their shit rocked. Think about it, pledgeship only lasts for a few months. What the hell is the brotherhood supposed to do without pledges to haze? It’s like having a girlfriend to screw on a daily basis, then breaking up. It’s not […]


The Drunk Pledge

Posted on 08 November 2010

If you really wanna fire-up the brotherhood, shotgun a beer. But we’re not talking about your average Saturday night rager. If your dreams of frat-star status are truly worthy, you’ll get fucked up on a daily basis. As a pledge, there’s no better way to earn respect. Well, assuming you’re pledging the right fraternity. Let’s […]


The Ideal Pledge

Posted on 18 October 2010

As brothers, we’d all love to have Hooters girls driving us around, serving us dinner and getting hardcore hazed. And in this case, sexually hazed. Well, we can’t all win the lottery now can we? Society has been pretty generous to keep fraternities and pledgeship around for the time being, so we won’t be too […]


GDI: God Damn Independents

Posted on 07 October 2010

For every hero, there lies a villain. For every frat-star, there lies a GDI. Let’s delve into a vocabulary lesson. GDI: God Damn Independent. For those in college who choose to live a life of solitary confinement, a meager contact list and ice cream socials, this lifestyle is for you. They forgo the opportunity of […]


The Importance of Secrecy

Posted on 24 September 2010

Well fuck, isn’t this an entire website devoted to the revelation of pledgeship secrets? You bet your ass it is. So what about secrecy? I’ll shove it up the brotherhood’s ass, that’s what I’ll do. Look, the importance of secrecy remains immense in any brotherhood that hazes their pledges’ balls off. Just ask Tiger. A […]


The Pledge Who Does Nothing

Posted on 16 September 2010

Now let’s face it, we’re all in college and we all don’t really give a fuck about getting shit done. That’s self-explanatory. If you’ve ever pledged a frat, or have any intention to do so, let’s just say that your GPA isn’t your primary concern. I’m not hating, I’m congratulating. But hey, there comes a […]


Pledge Class President

Posted on 12 September 2010

The leader of all leaders. Oh, the irony. The word “president” comes with an air of confidence, importance and meaning. Well fuck that. Welcome pledgeship, and welcome Mr. Pledge Class President. No longer does the commander in chief have control, but rather, this president inherited a pile of shit unknown to the average #20 GDI. […]


The Overachieving Pledge

Posted on 31 August 2010

We all know the little douche-bags who sit in the front row of class or lecture. When the professor cracks a miserable joke, they burst out laughing. They’re fucking annoying, they make us bros look bad, and you want to punch them in the face. This, my friends, is the GDI equivalent to The Overachieving […]


Top-Ten Reasons Why Pledging Sucks (#5 – #1)

Posted on 27 August 2010

5. Blue–Balled: Alright, this gets a little personal. We’ve mentioned this before in the “You Know You’re A Pledge When…” post, but this must be brought to the forefront of all the bullshit. I fuck you not when I tell you that pledges have no spare time. You get up, go to school, serve lunch, […]


Top-Ten Reasons Why Pledging Sucks (#10 – #6)

Posted on 20 August 2010

10. Frat-Mart: Your wardrobe makes the transition from Hollister and American Eagle, to food-stained, ripped, wrinkled, khaki pants, along with dollar-store polo’s and worn-out boat shoes. Doing laundry? Fuck no— there’s no time. Your outfit is thrown on and off countless times no matter how wet or rank. For the time being, the Salvation Army and […]


The Token Fat Pledge

Posted on 10 August 2010

Every pledge class comes in all shapes, ages and sizes. While fall classes are always larger than spring classes (number-wise), there will always be a token chubster in each pledge class. I don’t care if a fraternity has a reputation for being skinny, good-looking and athletic, every pledge class needs its whale. The importance of […]


The Asshole of the Brotherhood

Posted on 07 August 2010

If you’ve been through it, you know what I’m talking about. There’s always that guy. Whether it’s his job in the house, or his job in life, he’s there at the worst times. The guy you would seriously punch in the face if given the chance— the guy you will hold a grudge against always […]



Posted on 02 August 2010

The ultimate week of man flirting. Whether you’re a library nerd or a hardcore partier, every college student should experience a week of rush just for the hell of it. If you don’t know what rush is, then you’ve missed out. Usually occurring the first week of school in both the fall and spring, rush […]
