John’s Story: Candle-Light Hell Week

Tags: ,


As promised, the PledgingSucks community will be heard. John, from an anonymous (badass) fraternity at Indiana University, tells his story:

“During my Hell Week, this was back in 2006, they had us live in this room for 5 days. We had 40 kids in our pledge class. In the room there is a giant fireplace. They lit a candle on the mantle of the fireplace. For the 5 days, they say: “do not let a brother blow out the candle”. Every time they (the brothers) blow out the candle,  we (the pledges) are told to be “SO FUCKED”.

Well basically at times 30 brothers would burst in room and a giant wrestling match would take place. A kid tore his meniscus and another brother his wrist. Read the full story

The Overachieving Pledge

Tags:


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 Pledge. Just as every pledge class encompasses a Token Fat Pledge, there will always be the one pledge that goes above and beyond. The dick-sucker, brother-lover, overachieving faggot who makes the rest of the pledge class look like shit. There’s always one, and oh yes, we want to punch him in the face too. Read the full story

Summer Session

Tags:


Society is extremely gracious in their acceptance of college as a tradition among youths. Yet, college will never settle. Hence, summer session. The greatest 4+ years of your life have not and will not be boxed into two semesters. When Spring comes to an end, you have one hell of a choice to make. Will it be a trip home to live with mommy and daddy, living a life of pure boredom and restriction? Or will you continue into the sun-filled gloriousness of summer session living in the moment of keg stands and sorostitutes? It’s your choice to make.

Brethren, Wrap Up Thine Dicks

Tags:


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 a good story if someone walks in. Your dick is already getting hard as she works your buckle loose and unbuttons your pants. You feel her hot breath against your ear as she whispers something…

“Do you have a condom?”

Oh shit!

We’ve all been there. Nothing is quite as much of a buzz kill as pausing things to go hunting for a rubber. You’re not an idiot. You remember sex-ed, all those gross pictures of warts and rashes. But you are as hard as a rock and ready to go. Besides, she looks clean, doesn’t seem like the type who sleeps around. But will the story be worth it?

Hate to be a debbie-downer, but we’re here to educate. For all your current brethren and freshman hopefuls, take this to heart. It’s apart of #89 Rush Preparation. Here are the cold, hard facts guys:

STIs are on the rise, particularly on college campuses, where only about half of sexually active students are wrapping it before they tap it. According to the Center for Disease Control, the two most common infections are HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and Chlamydia. Yea, that crazy shit. Both can be hard to detect, so even people who look “clean” can spread these diseases, which can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. HPV is particularly dangerous for women, who are at a higher risk for certain cancers if infected with HPV.images

EverydayHealth.com says that one in four college students has an STD. One in four! Take a look at the people around you, man. Do the math. You’ve surely got a few buddies who came to college with you. Yea, one of you are inevitably fucked at this rate.

Okay, enough with the preaching. For most of us, it’s not about being ignorant of the facts. For most of us, it’s a simple case of not being adequately prepared. And that’s the most difficult part about practicing safe sex—being prepared before the time is right. As one astute student put it in the Daily Sundial:

“I think that people generally tend to do a risk-versus-benefit assessment of the moment. Usually, that moment is not the best moment to make logical decisions.”

Add a little alcohol to the moment, and it’s even harder to remember to use a condom. Fox News cites one study that confirms that the higher a person’s blood alcohol level, the greater the likelihood that person would engage in unsafe sex. As much as a rubber stands as the ideal bro-hero cock-block, it also stands as the one piece of material allowing you to keep you dick working, keep your father-status at check, and continue on with the lifestyle we’ve come to love.

You’ve got to think about condoms like you think about beer. You keep the fridge stocked with beer, right? So why not keep the frat house stocked with condoms too? The #71 Alcoholic Pledge knows what I’m talking about. PledgeMasterAvatar

Just imagine walking into every room and seeing a candy dish full of condoms in all different colors and flavors. Not only are you letting your guests know what you and your bros are about, you’re also guaranteeing that love gloves will always be at the ready. Set the mood.

Take it a step further and have all the guys pitch in for a batch of condoms labeled with your frat’s letters. Look online and you can find any number of sites providing the personalization of anywhere from 50 to 10,000 condoms, and they’re cheaper than you might think. Investment, bros, investment. Don’t add to the list of #8 Why It Sucks to pledge by adding an STD to the list. 

Now maybe you’re the type of guy who just doesn’t like condoms. You think they dampen your sensitivity, lessen the experience. The truth is you probably haven’t found the right condom yet. Condoms are like women—there are all kinds and you’ve got to stick your dick in a lot of them before you find the right one. In other words, condoms shouldn’t be a last-minute purchase at the check-out counter. Your dick deserves better, and the chicks you hook up with do too. Read the full story

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

Tags:


5. BlueBalled: 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, study (sort-of), serve dinner, get hazed, pledge drive, and pass out. Do it all over again tomorrow. There just isn’t enough time in the day to reward your eyes with YouJizz, or MILF Hunter. Your manly jewels are left lonely, day after day after day. You find yourself getting hard at the most awkward moments. It’s almost as bad as that chick from last year not finishing you off like a broad is supposed to. It’s a man’s issue, and it sucks. Thank you pledgeship, my dick still hurts. Read the full story

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 cheapest Wal-Mart clearance items serve as your newest mall hangout.  It takes a solid 12 weeks of hell to transition into the beloved Sperry’s, Polos, Guy Harvey, Costas, Chino’s and a visor. Even then, a few years is needed to truly develop a wardrobe of frat perfection. Read the full story

But, if you purchased $1,000 worth of beer, drank all the beer, turned in the aluminum cans for recycling, you would have $214.00! Therefore the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg Plan.”

The Token Fat Pledge

Tags:


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 such a pledge goes beyond words. As a fellow pledge, you need someone to look up to. The fat pledge is the guy whom every other pledge thinks to himself (or sometimes even says out loud)… “If he can do it, then fuck, so can I.” And most of the time the fat pledge has a sense of humor. There’s nothing better than a fat kid making fun of himself. It keeps the spirits high. During pledgeship, this is key. To add on to the value of having the token fat pledge in your pledge class, consider his ability to take down a keg. With beer and alcohol constantly being funneled down your throat, it helps to have a guy who can put a dent in the keg. If you’re that fat pledge reading this, I tip my hat to you sir. Your kind contributed to my successful completion of pledgeship. God Bless You. Read the full story

The Asshole of the Brotherhood

Tags:


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 and forever. While the list of reasons could easily fill up a yellow notebook pad, you begin to hate him for who he is, rather than what he does. He’s a fucking asshole. You question his parents, his sexuality, and his innate passion to live life as an asshole. You truly wonder how someone could entertain such a passion for fucking another over. Read the full story

Fear of the Unknown

Tags:


As a pledge, knowing what’s going to happen next allows you to mentally, and sometimes physically, prepare for the shit to come. Well fuck– where’s the fun in that? It’s like knowing you’re about to get punched in the face. The knowledge of the future fucks with your mind just as much as the actual punch does. As a brother in a frat, there’s no greater pleasure than knowing what’s about to happen to the hopeless pledges. Sympathy? Fuck no. While noticing the fear in their eyes, brothers get wet with masochistic hard-ons. And for the record, the ability to get off on such sick pleasure is rightly given due to the fact that each and every brother was once a pledge. But still, you better believe there are always the one or two pledges who shit themselves in fear. Fear of the unknown– who knows, sometimes you’d rather know you’re about to get punched in the face. It’s like standing in the wall during a free-kick at a soccer game. You just grab your manly jewels and hold on for dear life.

Rush

Tags:


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 is a “formal recruitment” period that (as Wiki so prophetically describes) usually consists of events and activities designed for members and potential members to learn about each other and the organization. Right— except this definition forgets to talk about the free food, endless kegs, easy girls, extreme promises, far-fetched lies and true man flirting. Read the full story

Animal House

Tags:


I think we can all relate to one historical past-time that fully encompasses all that is Greek-life: Animal House. Nothing sparks a national boner more than a few alcoholic frat boys with an overdose of testosterone and unlimited kegs to tap.  Although this epic film is a few years old (debuted in 1978), we can never erase the image of a black & white sweater with “college” embroidered on the front. Belushi is the hero of both young & old.

Pledge Class Pet

Tags:


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 it be the first day, beginning of hell week, or somewhere in-between, most respectable fraternities incorporate some form of pledge class pet into their pledgeship. The pet becomes apart of the brotherhood, and more importantly, apart of that pledge class. Whatever the animal is, it has a name. After enduring weeks of pledgeship hell with a pet by your side, he or she becomes apart of your story, slavery and pledge lifestyle. On one hand, it’s a distraction to get you through the pain. On the other, it’s a comical storyline for the brotherhood to play puppet-master with. In addition, #53 Pledge Attire applies to the entire pledge class, so don’t be surprised to find a suit painted on a pledge class chicken or pig.

Over the years, stories have surfaced involving all sorts of animals. Some you’ll be familiar with, and others you’ve never heard of. Either way, the lessons taught by caring for such a pet span far and wide. Why does the brotherhood do it? Take a wild guess. Because they can. And, well, it’s fucking hilarious to watch a group of college freshman attempt to care for a wild animal. 

The most common animals are those that usually don’t have long life spans in the first place. Stories from around the web involve pet pigs, chickens, roosters, and other farm animals. In most cases, the pledge class has to go out and catch/buy their pledge class pet. In other cases, the brotherhood introduces the pledge class pet in some dramatic manner. The #13 PCP usually makes the decision. Yet, just as every pledge usually has a role or title, there’s usually one pledge solely responsible for the pledge class pet. One more thing: the #62 Cost of Pledging goes hand in hand with the pledge class pet. Remember, you have to feed it, and make sure it doesn’t die. Medical expenses? Try taking the Pledge Class Pig to the vet.

By no means is there some legal disclaimer protecting the safety of these animals. In more cases than not, the Pledge Class Pet dies. How does it die? Well, however the brotherhood deems fit. If it’s a pig, there’s a roast. If it’s a chicken, there’s bound to be a head lying around somewhere by the end of the semester. 

Sound off in the comments below. We’d love to hear your pledge class pet story…

Parental Problems

You’ve just made one of the largest decisions of your life by going to college. If you were lucky enough to have had a few options, then get ready for a few more. If you’ve already surpassed the question of whether or not to pledge, on comes the greatest decision of all: the choice of fraternities. Your timetable isn’t on your side; your decision will be made during the slim days of #2 rush, and you’ll never look back. Yet, choose wisely.

Brotherhood Communication: The List-Serve

Tags:


Ever wonder how the brotherhood stays connected? Just as some of the most simple aspects of every-day life are transformed into greatness through fraternities, even the most basic form of communication is taken to the next level in the brotherhood. With modern technology on the rise, most-notably crack-berries and i-phones, brothers are constantly in touch with one another. In a matter of seconds, your entire fraternity can read about your ridiculous one-night stand, watch the video of your buddy getting arrested for pissing in public, or gawk at the picture that last night’s slam-piece never knew was being taken. Then again, all fraternity list-serves garner even more #16 importance for secrecy. Check out the recent email from USC Kappa Sigma that got ’em in trouble. It’s hilarious…

What The Letters Really Mean

Tags:


If you’re somewhat new to the fraternal way of life, there’s nothing more confusing than the Greek alphabet. Strewn across every fraternity and sorority house on campus, along with every other sweatshirt, jacket and rearview car window, Greek letters have and will always remain a fraternity and sorority commonplace. While it doesn’t take a genius to match a symbol to a name, these letters often times symbolize way more than a few Greek words. Going down the lines of #59 fraternity stereotypes, each fraternity and sorority garner quite a few more hidden meanings, both good and bad. Check it out…

Fraternity Stereotypes

College represents four years to let-loose. It doesn’t mean we’ll be pulling keg-stands and hazing pledges ten years down the line… right? Anyways, #1 Animal House painted the picture for all to see. Yet, no fraternity is the same as another. Not everyone can take a pull like Belushi. Let’s take a look at the common stereotypes, ranging from fist-pumping Guido to button-down southern class.

Big Brothers

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 few weeks of pledgeship, each pledge is given (or chooses) a big brother. While there are a few rules to go along with the process, the theory is priceless. Your big brother will help you along the way. We all know a pledge needs all the help he can get. Once your big brother is chosen, the shit-show of all shit-shows occurs. That’s what we call Big Brother Night.
