Joining fraternities is like joining a powerful group in a university. Even though certain risks have been identified, people are still very eager to join to gain power and protection. They are blinded by the privileges offered to them. Tristan Zantua, 3rd year, Information Technology, University of Santo Tomas

I think its because most of them just want to get favors from the brotherhood. Some want prestige since ordinary people seem to regard frat members with a high impression and find them superior or astig. Membership in fraternities may protect them from people who attempt to hurt them physically. Myka Cruz, 2nd year MassCom, Centro Escolar University

Most people think that joining fraternities can expand their professional network. While most are usually just after the promise of guidance and assistance from their senior frat brothers, others only join fraternities to feel accepted or worse, just to feed their ego. Despite the known dangers of joining fraternities, many believe that the perks that they get from it still make up for any harm that it might cause them. Jose Miguel Perez, 2nd year proper, Dentistry, University of the East

Brotherhood and legacy Lack of Security Sense of Belongingness

According to Maslow: -humans need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance For example: some large social groups may include clubs, co-workers, religious groups, professional organizations, sports teams, and gangs. small social connections: family members, intimate partners, mentors, colleagues, and confidants.

need to love and be loved Many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and clinical depression in the absence of this love or belonging element. may overcome the physiological and security needs

lack security in their own homes. They look for people who will look after them. They think that these people want a boost of confidence. They usually long for a sense of belonging. It makes them feel secure. It also may be because they think that joining fraternities would prove their worth or perhaps they see similarities among themselves and the other members of the group.

They tend to ignore the numerous consequences that come with it because they know that they will be backed up all the time. If they are the type of troublemakers, they join for greater power. But sometimes there are people who join frats just to temporarily get rid of their problems.

misjudged by the public due to the increasing number of cases in hazing, hence there is hasty generalization. liking for what that fraternity stands for, legacy, brotherhood, professional connections, and other personal reasons. We should keep in mind that not all fraternities are bad, just like there are good Christians and bad Christians, good Muslims and bad Muslims, and so on.

Students still join fraternities because of the benefits that they get from it (financially and emotionally). Despite the risks, they still consider the brotherhood more important than any other physical injuries that they would face. Also, maybe its because people can see more of the good purpose of the brotherhood rather than the possible adverse effects.

There may be many college students who do benefit from pledging to fraternities and sororities. vital part of many college students' college experience, but it isn't for everyone. In addition, fraternities and sororities oftentimes charge costly yearly memberships.

Excessive drinking---Your body could be chemically addicted to alcohol Conformity---You're pressured to conform to the group. Time---Greek life takes up a great deal of time.

Expense---Not only does it cost to join a fraternity or sorority, but there's also a strain to keep up with your frat brothers and sorority sisters Friends---When you go Greek you're expected to be bonded to your Greek brothers and sisters.

Parties--- Fraternity and sorority parties are known for their out of control parties.

Initiations---Maybe not all initiations are dangerous, but enough have been publicized to let us know many are not safe (especially fraternity ones.) Hazing. It is quite illegal and can involve very negative repercussions, including expulsion from school.

All Greek fraternities will have hazing rituals and this is deemed necessary for all pledges. However, the rituals are usually amplified each year and students are made to endure inhumane treatment. Hazing rituals can be divided into three categories: subtle, harassment and violent.

Subtle Hazing: Social isolation, Assigning Demerits, Deception, Drills/Tests, Humiliating Acts and Public Ridicule Harassment Hazing: Sleep and Bathing Deprivation, Verbal Abuse, Threats, Sexually Degrading Acts, Acts of Physical Discomfort and Emotional Anguish Violent Hazing: Forced Alcohol or Drug Consumption, Brandings, Beating/Paddling, Mistreatment of Animals, Abductions, Sexual Assault and Life Endangerment Acts
