Some of these activities may be true but the reality is that fraternities and sororities are way more than that. A fraternity is a brotherhood. “It is¬†an organized society of men associated together in an environment of companionship; dedicated to the intellectual, physical, and social development of its members”.¬†According to Fraternity Info, The Greek system is a network of about 5 million alumni members occupying different important leadership roles in society.
