I dont know shit about the Greek culture, however, I think I can profit from them on ebay.

Which ones are the most populated organizations?




If you have ever been picked on... been called a dweeb, or a nerd...

You should be able to do a fairly minor amount of research to discover which Greek organizations have the most chapters, active members, and alumni. That said,

I think I can profit from them on ebay.

Most of the national organizations probably aren't going to be really happy about that. And, I'm assuming, they've all got hefty legal staffs. Fraternities tend to have a need for lawyers from time to time.

You probably wouldn't have too much problem just using the greek letters on merchandise. Probably can't copyright that. But, I'd stay away from their coat of arms/crests or any other logos.

|Zach|
04-19-2005, 09:36 PM
I will say it is kind of a saturated market. All of them do merchandising through their own national organization and they do a lot of business with local places at each campus who have places just for Greek Life.

heh. lawyers? pfft. on ebay, you get a slap on the wrist for selling copyright material... they then give you your listing fee credited back to your acct.

so basically, you profit until they tell you cant profit... then move on, with a little red slap mark on the hand.


-Zach... yeah it could be a saturated market, but I cant find this product on ebay... except for one frat and the prices were crazy. I could make 2-3 times on my money.

What product are you trying to sell, specifically?

When I was in school we got catalogs of shit in the mail almost every day. Then there were the dudes that just showed up at the house with a truckload of merchandise. There was no need to look to ebay for our fraternity merchandise related needs.

The only thing I would look to ebay for is some rare collectible related to the fraternity.

If you can pull it off than more power to you. I wish you the best. I think the reason you couldn't find something on E-Bay is because frats and sors. do not have to go to E-Bay to get everything they need merchandise wise

Like this is an example for the AKL's

Bah. That's an illegitimate criticism... I never paid for a single friend or a single enemy I made in the house. What I did pay for was a great lesson in organizational dynamics while making some of the best friends I could ever dream to make...

It's not like you have to stop being friends w/ all non-Greeks when you join a house.

Well, maybe there are houses like that at MU. I wouldn't join them. They're cockfaces.

Besides frat parties are SHIT compared to house parties (in my experience)

then again I've only been to (two) rush parties.

I can't speak for MU, but I had a pretty good time at many fraternity parties in college. By the end I think I was less interested, though. I was spending more and more time at the bar, and less and less in a darkened fraternity house watching a bunch of 18 year olds get their first taste of beer.

I had a pretty good time at a few GDI parties in school, too. GDI parties were sweet because I drank for free. BTW, when I say GDI parties, I mean parties thrown by a UMR recognized organization called GDI. They changed the GD to "general delegation of" for their name, though. Great f*cking organization, if I do say so. Their entire mission was to throw parties. You could buy a "temporary membership" for five bucks at any party (which, got you a cup for the night).

No one made anyone stop being friend with GDIs at Mizzou. It did limit them getting into Fraternity parties but that was about it.



What they don't understand is that they aren't being held out of parties because of status reasons at most places... It's a liability and charter issue... If there isn't quality control of some sort, the organization is put at risk, along with all of the history built up.

There are plenty of elitist dicks though, I'll give you that...

It's not like you have to stop being friends w/ all non-Greeks when you join a house.

Well, maybe there are houses like that at MU. I wouldn't join them. They're cockfaces.

It's not that I'd HAVE to stop hanging with my gdi friends, it's just I hang with em all the time now, and if I joined a frat I figure I'd be too busy to hang with them a lot. That'd probably suck. But....I donno. If I don't join a frat I'll be getting a house with 3 of my friends. I think that'd be a lot of fun. I'm just afraid I'll regret not trying out the frat thing.

Get into the house with the plan of being in there for two years... Then find three or four of your best friends and rent a house. You'll get the best of both worlds... There should be no reason you won't be able to keep your old friends...

Wow ... they had frat talk on sports radio earlier today. The guys on the show sounded like bitter bastards that didn't get a bid or just didn't pledge.

It's what you decide to make of it. There are great chapters and shitty chapters. I think an overall structure of a fraternity at a national level sets the tone, but ... you go to one campus in Texas and Fraternity A sucks. You go to another campus in Florida and Fraternity A kicks ass.

Your "coolness" or ability to make friends shouldn't be based on letters on your shirt. I was in a fraternity throughout college, and I had a blast.

I had some great friends that didn't pledge... if it's not your gig, don't bash it just b/c some fraternity guy pissed you off in another life.

If you need a fraternity to define you, then you have issues... if the fraternity can help you grow then good for you.

In the 12 years since graduating, I've had different thoughts about the whole experience, but I wouldn't change a thing. There are so many insane stereotypes and I'm sure some shit happens at other campuses - hazing, etc - but we didn't get into that.

I laugh at people that bash fraternities... and I laugh equally as hard as some of those guys that 15 years later, act as if they never left.

Eh, a lot depends on what house you join. Your pledge semester you'd probably be pretty busy... but, I always found time to do my own thing all through my fraternity experience. Even during the year and a half I was social chair... course, I guess my ability to always make time to go out and party is what made me such a good social chair.

Kappa Alpha Order has cannons.

The longstanding urban legend is that nat'l pulls their cannon if they initiate a black.

The UMR chapter doesn't have a cannon anymore because it exploded in 1970-something when they fired it as part of their little sister initiation. Killed a dude.

I wasn't aware that the MU chapter's cannon exploded recently. Sheesh, you'd think they'd talk to the guys a couple hours down the road from time to time. Also odd that you mention the funeral home thing. The UMR chapter's house looks like a funeral home.

Fraternity charters are public documents. Do you think a clause like that would exist in such a document?

Further, there are gonna be chapters on campuses without a black cultural house... or at least, there wasn't one there when the chapter started.

The whole cannon thing's bullshit, too. Hence my characterization of it as an urban legend. If you ask a KA whether or not it's true, the most common response is for them to smirk and say, "Well, we still have ours."

The thing you need to ask yourself is this: how many black men would WANT to join KA? They're the "southern gentleman's" fraternity. They're very open about being based on the values of Robert E. Lee. I'm not pissing on REL's grave just for being on the losing side of the civil war or anything, but how many black guys are going to feel comfortable, much less desire, to be a part of an organization that has pics of the dude and rebel flags all over the place?

Additionally, such an atmosphere has a tendency to attract a certain subset of white pledge. Even if you have some respect for Southern pride and whatnot, who wants to be in a house that's known as the campus repository for jokes denigrating your race?

Does this make KAs bad people necessarily? No. I've had plenty of friends that were KAs. It's just a unique aspect to their fraternity.

But, KA is a house with a pretty strong theme. I should go look up where they even have chapters. It'd be interesting to see what states they're even in. I gotta say, though. But, a KA chapter with a bunch of blacks in it... or even one or two... has got to be about as rare as an AEPi chapter with a bunch of non-Jews.

You obviously never attended a TKE party at SMSU during the heyday ... we had a full DJ booth, mixing board, lighting system, and an average of about 900+ people on Friday nights.

Of course, the dumb****s got caught with a keg at a party a few years ago. After 52 years of continuous operation and tons of crazy stuff they get the house shut down because they can't be discreet with it.

When I pledged back in 91 we had 3 national frats and 1 nat sorotiy and one local sorority.

We had us, KA and Sigma Nu.

Sororities Zeta Tau Alpha and Lamba Beta Phi which turned into Alpha Sigma Alpha.

Sigma Nu got kicked off campus. So we are now down to two frats.


MSSU is like a community college. They only have about 800 living on campus. The avg age of a student is around 33 I believe.

When I was in college Julio Leon was not big for the greek system. He is comng around now I think.

I was Kappa Sigma at University of Arkansas. I don't think Kappa Sigs are all that great nationally, but our Chapter is, historically, one of the best. It's the Xi chapter, and it's known nationally as Fabulous Xi (sounds gay, I know).

Some notable Kappa Sigs:

Jimmy Buffett.
Jerry Jones.

Woah. Didn't realize that Lamar was also a Kappa Sig:
Jimmy Buffett - Musician
Bob Dole - Past Senator and Senate Majority Leader
Robert Redford - Actor/Director
Jerry Jones - Owner Dallas Cowboys
Lamar Hunt - Owner of the Kansas City Chiefs
Ted Turner - Owner of Turner Broadcasting
Dan Dierdorf - Sports Commentator
William Hewlett - Co-founder of Hewlett-Packard

I'm going to have to use my secret insider influence as a brother to tell him to fire Carl.

I'm not big on doing the elephant walk with 15 guys, for the priviledge of giving them $500/semester to "be my brother".

I eventually got my pin pulled because I wouldn't pay money anymore. Before, I was living in the House, getting room and board, so I could justify spending the money. Once I moved out, I thought it was stupid to have to pay semester dues just to be a member, so I stopped paying. They quickly pulled my pin.

As for the infamous elephant walk, we never had to do that. The worst we'd get would be drunk assholes coming home from the bars drunk and calling the pledges out at 3am for an impromptu "lineup". They'd hustle you all downstairs into the basement and have you do pushups and get yelled at for a while.

Our chapter made some rush posters with him one year. It said, "Rush TKE and get some!"

Of course, the Jesus squad at SMSU weren't real happy with that ...

Title 12 Major Offenses of Members

Apparently you're confused and have forgotten the question.

I'm not interested in seeing the specific bylaw you're referencing. My question is, do you believe your chapter to be the exception, or the rule?

Wait... I know the problem. The word rule is throwing you off, yes? Allow me to rephrase...

Do you believe that most chapters of KA Order are like yours in the respect of zero tolerance of n*gger jokes, or do you believe your chapter is in the minority?
