So, I have had multiple encounters and experiences with frats and sororities. I rushed freshman year and accepted a bid from a fraternity. After ~1 week I was booted before I had even been given a pledge manual. I had already been a designated driver for 2 "brothers", met with other pledges outside normal meeting times to hang out at the house and had made friend. I was given no reason for being booted, even after I asked directly. Later on, I talked to some of the other friends I had made and learned that most of the fraternities around the area of the one that booted me had a reputation for being dirty and for DATE RAPE.
Honestly, getting booted was a great thing for me. I have been dating a sorority girl for 3+ years, so I've gotten an insider view of many of their activities. She spent a year in the position that was 3rd from the top in her sorority. I must say that sororities will take over your life if you let them, and they will do so if you don't find time to do other things on your own. I had to fight just to see her 2 nights out of the week, which were usually spent doing homework together (the kind of homework that involves no communication). However, her sorority at least had good intentions in mind. Although they certainly make it easier to obtain alcohol, drugs, and sexual intercourse, it is not a requirement.
Overall, I have found that sororities can be a lot of drama, but are generally good in their nature. However, most of the social fraternities need to be watched carefully (2 people almost died, like ICU trip "almost died", during initiation in the last 5 years at my college).
I like to say that social fraternities and sororities are bad, but the individual people in them are good.
