Greek Girls Gone Wild

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. How says:

      @How do you even let it go that far? Rapid application of duct tape to the mouth prevents any unwanted outbursts…

    2. In fact says:

      @In fact she wasn’t just yelling “stop”. She was short of breath and meant to get out the full “stop not fucking me in the ass while we watch tapes of you fucking your ex.”

  • Glad I'm not the only one says:

    @Glad I'm not the only one who thinks Barnard is a big sorority
    But no, some BC girlz are alright

  • Sorority Girl says:

    @Sorority Girl Hate all you want. You know you’re jealous.

    1. but.. says:

      @but.. Except we”re totally not….I’d rather be planning my own weekends in NYC, not having someone else plan them for me.

    2. thanks... says:

      @thanks... but I don’t need a big annoying club to make friends.

      1. yeah says:

        @yeah and that’s probably why you don’t have any.

    3. very jealous. says:

      @very jealous. I was crushed to learn that my lifelong dream of joining a sorority would not be possible, ’cause I have a penis. Damn you, manhood!

    4. ... says:

      @... that is precisely the attitude that leads to a situation where you people think that it’s okay to scream out in the middle of low plaza for an hour. get over yourselves.

      1. ?????? says:

        @?????? what do you mean, “you people”?

        1. probably says:

          @probably “African Americans”

    5. who wouldn't be jealous? says:

      @who wouldn't be jealous? don’t we all wish we had an excuse to get drunk with the lowest of the columbia and barnard female crop and go out to try to get fucked by the same ten frat guys every weekend?

      1. Well says:

        @Well That’s just a description of Delta Gamma.

  • Yeah says:

    @Yeah Jealous of what exactly?

  • hahah says:

    @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.

    1. !!! says:

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

    2. it's true says:

      @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.

      1. for shame says:

        @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.

        1. Umm says:

          @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.

        2. shame for you says:

          @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”.

        3. ???? says:

          @???? 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.

        4. Wow says:

          @Wow You’re a fucking moron. k thx bye.

          1. not to be says:

            @not to be a dissenting voice, but technically, it’s “kthxbai.” yarly.

      2. just stop. says:

        @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

  • whatever says:

    @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.

  • haha says:

    @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?

  • Guy says:

    @Guy #30: your => you’re
    #31: there => their

  • Jaded says:

    @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)

  • look says:

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

    1. a... says:

      @a... clit clique?

  • whyy says:

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

  • such hypocrisy... says:

    @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.

    1. idiot says:

      @idiot since when does liberal equate open-minded or accepting, my friend?

  • now says:

    @now everybody show up to tonight’s meeting or you will be fined!

    I’d rather gargle with nails

  • losers says:

    @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?

    1. o shut the hell up says:

      @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.

  • if they're says:

    @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.

    1. Why don't says:

      @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?

  • i love says:

    @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.

    1. sorority girl 2 says:

      @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.

      1. being says:

        @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.

  • Is celebration says:

    @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!

    1. pretty sure says:

      @pretty sure they’d never take you.

      just shut the fuck up guys. if you aren’t in one then why do yo care so much? seriously, grow up. get laid. get a job. just shut the fuck up.
