Greek Girls Gone Wild

Written by

It’s Bid Day 2009 – the conclusion of spring sorority recruitment and the much-anticipated culmination of several days’ worth of events with names like the Philanthropy Brunch, Development Night, and Preference Night. Such titles might sound mysterious, but recruitment more closely resembles a harmless enough string of parties and social networking, with a little bit of traditional Greek ritual thrown in. Until the end.

That brings us to tonight’s public service announcement: If you’re outside, get in.  Right this very moment, wide-eyed hopefuls are finding out if they’ve made it or not. Until sunrise, the rest of the Columbia population is under threat of brand-new sister celebrations gone awry. Stay away from College Walk, where according to the Sigma Delta Tau website, “festivities” will occur at 9:00. And close your windows – those screams may not be from an exorcism, but your eardrums are still vulnerable.

  1. AAAHHHH  

    the horror! the horror!

  2. SHHhhhh  

    these girls are annoying enough for being in sororities. do they have to additionally annoy everyone, too? stfu.

  3. exorcism  

    why have you guys not covered varsity's awesome preview at cupal showcase last friday night?? look's like the show will feature an exorcism or two, and it's freaking hilarious.

  4. 115  

    vshow rocked, and rocks, and is gonna rock.

  5. At least  

    This is the first and last time we'll have to hear sorority girls screaming something besides "stop".

  6. ahh  

    shuttt uppp.

    take a walk uptown and scream there? k thx.

  7. Ugh  

    Why do they feel they need to try to be the center of attention? No one cares.

  8. well  

    you know, i wish i was having as much fun as them right now

  9. why  

    do Barnard girls join sororities? Isn't Barnard pretty much a big sorority? How much more girl-centric do you want to get?

  10. seriously  

    shut upppppppppppppp

  11. All of you complainers  

    are simply striking preemptively against your future bosses.

  12. Glad I'm not the only one  

    who thinks Barnard is a big sorority
    But no, some BC girlz are alright

  13. Sorority Girl

    Hate all you want. You know you're jealous.

  14. Yeah

    Jealous of what exactly?

  15. hahah  

    forgive us greek girls from having a little fun. most of the time it seems like we are the only ones who do on this campus.

    • !!!  

      highty tighty god almighty who the hell am i? shim sham hot damn i'm an alpha chi!!

    • it's true  

      no one else has fun on the campus. that is to say, if "fun" is the same as having especially catty bitch fights, getting inebriated to the point of not even needing to be roofied, and just generally fulfilling every pathetic stereotype of american college women. you guys are an embarrassment to the rest of the females at this school.

      • for shame  

        Michelle Obama is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, so I'm assuming you think she's an embarrassment to the rest of the female population as well.

        I really believed this country had turned a new leaf when we elected Barack Obama, but unfortunately it seems like we are still using shame, stereotyping, and racism as tools against others. It really pains me to see that so many of my fellow Obama supporters are still clinging to the old norms and not walking with him into this new era.

        • Umm

          What the goddamned fuck does Obama have to do with this??? Racism?? Really???? I don't see any mention of race, either overt or implied in this entire thread--that is, until your ass makes an appearance. I don't care what race you are, I HATE you and your kind of people, who try to inject their irrelevant self-righteous bullshit into every conversation, if only to hide you own deep-seated racist thoughts. You're the type of person who laughs at "black humor" at home on the couch, but are too scared to do it in public. So you make up for it in the worst way possible, by being a hypersensitive douchebag everywhere else. And the tragic part is, you think no one sees through your bullshit. I hope you die in a ditch you self-riyhteous whore.

        • shame for you  

          Why the hell do you need to bring the Obamas into it? You argue that WE still use shame and you started with "for shame".

        • ????  

          what? racism? and wtf to the person who posted something about liberals? ladies cool it...we're just engaging in the venerable tradition of Columbia fraternity/sorority bashing. no need to make it all political and shit.

        • Wow  

          You're a fucking moron. k thx bye.

      • just stop.  

        why don't you let go our your dumb-ass 'legally blond' stereotypes. that's not what any of this is and you don't know what you're talking about - so either do your research or shut the hell up.

        who are you to be talking about what girls from these organizations do when you CLEARLY aren't friends with them, have never been a part of nor understand their groups and (i seriously doubt) have ever left your room?

        there are girls both in and out of sororities who act like idiots sometimes - that says nothing about the group as a whole.

        you're the embarassment

  16. whatever

    If you are so cool, why are there only 4 sororities so basically your NOT the shit. Should have gone to a greek school if you find the need to chug cheap beers in the basements of frats to have a good time.

  17. haha

    I find it sad that when I go to bars and meet guys they, reluctantly, ask if I'm in a sorority. When I respond "no", joy overtakes them like there biggest fears have disappeared. Sometimes they are frat guys. Shouldn't that say enough about the greek system?

  18. Guy  

    #30: your => you're
    #31: there => their

  19. Jaded  

    Urgh...three of them brought the party back to my floor.. Keep shrieking, bitches; won't make daddy love you.

    (Yes I'm crabby at 3 goddamn o'clock in the morning)

  20. look  

    sororities are obviously formalized cliques, but most girls need to be in some sort of clique, whether formalized or not.

  21. whyy  

    why does everyone on this campus have such a god damn sense of entitlement?

  22. such hypocrisy...  

    "an embarrassment to the rest of the females at this school"? Wow you sound pretty catty yourself...

    For a school filled with such open-minded liberals, you sound pretty intolerant of anyone with interests different from your own.

  23. now  

    everybody show up to tonight's meeting or you will be fined!

    I'd rather gargle with nails

  24. losers  

    Why do we have to hear the shrieking sounds of a group of bimbos excited about getting smashed on the weekend and fucking random frat boys?

    Can those sluts just shut up?

    • o shut the hell up  

      clearly you're bitter or you wouldn't care so much. shut up you effffing loser.

      just go get yourself laid. or read a book. probably the latter - you don't sound like you could do the first.

  25. if they're  

    so stupid, why do you care so much?

    i really don't understand people. if you don't like a particular group, who cares? just shut up about it and go find something else to do.

    sororities are about more than just "getting drunk and fucking frat guys." i mean honestly, so much work goes into keeping these organizations together and the friendships that are formed within them are strong.

    we could have gone to state schools but chose columbia instead for various reasons. soOoOoRy if we didn't want to give up everything that is part of a traditional college experience. if you choose not to participate in greek life, no one cares and no one gives you crap about it. so shut up already.

    • Why don't  

      you shut up? I'm pretty sure you don't get tormented in person by people who find Greek organizations pointless. Can't we comment on this article that just HAPPENS to be about your little club?

  26. i love

    when sororiwhores break the cock/liquor cycle long enough to come out and defend their devout--nay, philanthropical--lifestyle on teh interwebz. If only they took the time to wipe the crusty semen from their eyes and see themselves for what they really are.

    • sorority girl 2  

      that's disgusting. we sororiwhores and sorostitutes are actually quite devoted to the philanthropic organizations that we have spent years building partnerships with. It's really unbelievable how quickly some jump at the opportunity to tear us down without doing their research. now back to my cock/liquor cycle, you fuckhead.

      • being

        in a support group for chicks whose anal orgy vids got leaked on the net doesn't really count as philanthropy. And you should be glad you're just being torn down, as opposed to torn open, which I suspect is usually the case.

  27. Is celebration

    really that necessary? I mean, do they actually turn people away? Seems like anyone slutty/bitchy enough to want to be in a sorority at Columbia should be let in!
