Taking the Initiative One saying that everyone says that all people who are in Fraternities and Sororitys drink alcohol and party but in my experience I have found that not all do In fact a lot of Greeks take time out of their busy school schedules to help out with the community plan non-alcoholic activities and interact and work with the people involved with Oregon State University while maintaining there grades The Greek system is a valuable resource in which the Corvallis community should recognize and respect Without it the local community would lose out on many chances to meet and interact with some of the best people around Many people think that Greek organizations are only out to party drink and score for the night For instance my friends think that since I am in a fraternity that I drink a lot and go to these huge frat parties But in fact I drank more in high school and partied harder than what I do now As you can see this stereotype is not always true Of course this activity may happen but at the same time these same instances go on in dorms and in peoples homes The Greek community however seems to be shunned because of it This is probably due to the fact that most fraternities and sororities have nice homes they do well in school and they seem to get far in life while still having fun A lot of the general public might be jealous and envious This is not a reason to look down upon the Greek people I have seen first hand that a Fraternity can do well without the presence of alcohol In my house Phi Gamma Delta we have chosen not to have alcohol as a part of our everyday life We have seen what alcohol can do to fraternities About five years ago Phi Gamma Delta was closed down due to lacking grades
