From now until the end of the internet, Rebecca Martinson will be known as the mean girl who wrote a rabid email to her University of Maryland Delta Gamma sisters berating them for being “weird,” “awkward,” “boring,” “stupid,” retarded,” “ass hat,” “faggots” who were unable to properly socialize with brother frat Sigma Nu. When Rebecca wasn’t busy writing shame mail to her sorority sisters, she was working on a future career in comedy, composing racist, classist, size-ist Tweets. But since becoming infamous, she’s deleted her Twitter feed. Well, there goes her career as the next Lisa Lampanelli!  Should she make it through the rest of her college career at the University of Maryland — I imagine she’ll have to transfer — she’ll have to find some way to earn a living once she graduates. But what kind of job is someone with the gift of hate-spewing cut out for? We were wondering that very thing here at The Frisky. Her future doesn’t have to be a wash. We have some ideas for Rebecca… Keep reading »

Racist Sorority Photo Is Sad Reminder That Ignorance Is Everywhere

There’s really little use debating if the photo currently under fire from a Penn State Mexican-themed sorority party is offensive. It is, without a doubt. In a picture from the party, members of the Chi Omega sorority are seen dressed in ponchos, sombreros, and fake mustaches. That alone is questionable to some, but the signs they were holding were undeniably outrageous. One read: “Will mow lawn for weed + beer” and the other: “I don’t cut grass, I smoke it.” Read more…

During our senior year of high school in Texas, my friends and I often sat around and discussed sororities: which were the more “elite” sororities to join and which geeky Greek group to avoid. I was usually quiet during these discussions of sorority bashing and blasting. A year later, just watching my friends navigate the grueling process of sorority pledging was exhausting. Rush seemed to consume their lives. But even as a Tri-Delt double legacy, I had always known that sorority life wasn’t for me. Keep reading »

Campus Confidential: Advice For Next Year’s College Freshman

Fear Of Failure

Why Julie had to get over her fear of messing up. Read More »

There was a moment sometime during the weekend before finals week that I looked up from the copious U.N.-related documents assigned by my Intro to Human Rights professor that I had somehow failed to read during the semester and realized: “Holy shit my first year of college is basically over.”

I thought back to about a year before and tried to remember what I thought finishing my freshman year would feel like. I guess I thought I’d be far more sophisticated, secure and grown up in general. In reality — at least at that moment at time —I just felt a hell of a lot more stressed. But the truth is, I learned a lot over the past year, even if that transformation manifested in a number of small ways rather than one grand overhaul of my childish naivete.

So here are just a few pieces of advice for rising freshmen from somebody who just finished being one. Keep reading »

Campus Confidential: A Feminist Rushes A Sorority

campus confidential

When I thought about what my college experience would be like as a high schooler, I never for a second even slightly entertained the faintest thought of joining a sorority. As a self-identified feminist, as someone who thought Chapstick was a full face of makeup, and as someone who had about as much interest in enduring mosh pits of grinding frat boys as she did in microbial taxonomy (read: none) I had zero interest in what I, frankly, saw as an antiquated, possibly even anti-feminist and insulting tradition. Which is why when I pressed “send” on my Columbia University sorority recruitment application last December, nobody was more surprised than I was.  Keep reading »

Dallas Rapist Targeting Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Girls

A serial rapist in Dallas is apparently targeting alumnae of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority, a Dallas newspaper reports. Over the past eleven months, four black women in their 50s and 60s who are alumnae of DST in the Dallas area have been victims of home invasions between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. All were raped by seemingly the same suspect. Each woman said the rapist seemed to know personal information about them, which might suggest he’s targeting them through some kind of affiliation they all have. As such, the Plano, Texas, police department is warning DST alumnae (a predominantly black sorority) that arapist is afoot.

Sorority Girls More Likely To Have Bad Body Image, Eating Disorders, Study Says

That iconic image of bitchy sorority girls using a marker to circle the “fat” on a pledge’s body may not exactly reflect real life. But sadly, body image issues were disproportionately tilted towards those sorority wannabes according to a new study published in the journal Sex Roles. Ashley Marie Rolnik, who performed the study of 127 first-year college women at an anonymous Midwestern university, found that the ones who pledged rush week were more likely to judge their bodies by others standards and to have eating disordered behavior.

Yale’s Pi Phi Sorority Films The Rush Video To End All Rush Videos

We’re obsessed with unintentionally hilarious sorority girls here at The Frisky and the Pi Phi sorority at Yale soooo just became our new besties. If you remember, a few weeks ago we posted about Cornell’s Pi Phi sorority and their wackadoodle “fashion guidelines.” But Yale’s chipper chapter of Pi Phi ladies appear to be significantly less evil: Just watch their Pi Phi 2010 Fall Rush Video, which is loosely modeled on “Gossip Girl” and is inexplicably compelling. Seriously, it is worth watching for the entire seven-and-a-half minutes. [Guest Of A Guest] Keep reading »
