Hey everyone. For those that have ever been in a fraternity, is the monetary costs worth all the fun? I know everyone has been suggesting that I just become friends with people already in a Frat but that doesn't really work out in reality. I know next to nobody at my new college. All of my roommates are total geeks that play video games all day. I wanted to catch some good parties on the weekends and I've already asked some of them and they all don't go to any social events at all. I'm really trying very hard to make new friends (I'm a very sociable guy so its usually pretty easy). But its hard to meet new people when you literally don't know ANYONE. So I was considering joining a frat to not only go to good parties but to actually meet more people and make some friends. Joining a frat costs dues though anywhere from $200-300 dollars. I have the money to spend but at the same time I don't. I have $1400 in the bank but that has to last me 9 months.
So for the people that have been in a fraternity would you say its worth it? Thanks again for any advice.
