I need ideas on our pledge process. I need ideas on how to make pledges do something that has an underlying meaning behind it.
My fraternity needs help with easy and quick fundraisers. Were low on money and have a lot of big events coming up. Any ideas?
First off my fraternity only initiates a pledge after his grades are out and receives a 2.75 GPA and 2.5 cumulative, but our current fraternity president is keeping guys around off the books several semesters later and charging them dues but never fully initiating them or recognizing them nationally.
I was up at my chapter today, and a new member said something that pissed me off. I wanted to take a minute to share my reaction because I think it might be helpful to others.
I’m our fraternity vice president, but do a lot of the president’s work as he’s working a lot (it’s like having 2 presidents ). We gave a bid to a guy some brothers don’t feel fit “our normal image” and next week they will try to cut him early. Some brothers feel he is “sloppy seconds” as he rushed a different fraternity 2 years ago and quit. Other brothers feel that he may not keep quiet about certain secrets.
Do you have any tips/advice/suggestions about hosting successful fraternity parties? We just had a Rave, and the music was great and the lighting was sweet, but for some reason people would wander in and then wander out 10 minutes later.
Our fraternity had a great rush and now we have a large pledge class. What is the best way to start a pledge program to get these guys quickly involved? We are worried that some guys may quit, and that is the last thing we want. Thank you.

What kinds of things should a fraternity look for in an fraternity alumni advisor? What things should they avoid? Is age an issue?
As a president of a fraternity I understand that motivating members can be a hard challenge. After all, one reason officers take the challenge is too better their members for the rest of their lives. That may seem like an impossible task, but I have a bit of a solution to this leadership problem.
So rush week is this coming week (I’m a freshman btw). My parents (who aren’t keen on the “Greek-life” thing) told me that I’m allowed to rush, however I can’t accept any bids for this year. Basically they want me to not join a house until my sophomore year. Does turning them down for this year hurt my chances on still being a part of their house next year? Cause I don’t want them to think badly of me because of that. Should I just wait until sophomore year?
