Mason is conservative but most definitely not in the South.

Former commuter schools are not frat


When did I say it was frat? It's not.

Politically it is very conservative. It's not fratty or Southern. Make of it what you will.

Damn. I'm most likely going to UGA in the fall, but I'm not the fratty type at all. I guess I'll have to try to fit into that whole thing somewhat.

Bumped. I enjoyed reading this thread. I honestly do not know what compelled me to google the frattiest law school thread on TLS.

Kind of amazing as to what some people believe passes as frat.

If your college makes you have on-campuses "houses" that are essentially glorified dorms = Not frat.

If your college doesn't tailgate/have big-time athletics = Not frat.

If your college isn't close enough to get to a beach and/or the mountains for your fall/spring weekend retreats = not frat.

If your college doesn't have a horse derby within driving distance = not frat.

If there isn't some underlying, persistent conflict between the greek student body and the GDI student body = not frat.

If your college administration ultimately sides with the GDIs in said conflict = not frat.

Basically, UGA, UF, FSU, Bama, Ole Miss = FaF.

ETA: I love my Alma Mater, but UNC isn't frat.

That's a pretty shallow definition of what it means to be frat... I'd say there are 3 main types: bros at southern and state schools, country club/preppy kids in the northeast, and liberal arts frats that exist as a counterculture to hipsters/nerds/social justice warrior types. There's some overlap, sure, but classifications can be made.

For me, being generally fratty is having an attitude that you're fighting against BS to have a good time with your friends. Doesn't matter if you're (consentually and respectfully) slamming biddies at a mountain weekend, doing weird candlelight rituals your wealthy grandfathers made up in 1940 on opium, or having a party in the cornfields with a keg because there's nothing else going on in a 20 mile radius. It's all in the same spirit.

Bros, being fratty as fuck means being elite as fuck. The true fratbro can get shitfaced 4 days a week and still beat the curve. Moreover, when he kicks ass with effortless grace he does it not because any conscious effort but because when he wakes up in the morning he just naturally pisses excellence. The guy who's graduating with a dogshit GPA and/or at a dogshit school can bro out all he wants but he's just a poser. It's not about connections, wealth, or if your parents came over on the Mayflower. It's about being cool as fuck shit, chill as shit fuck, and if you pull.

Imo Duke and UVa have this pretty much on lock because their UG reputation trump any and all pro-frat-justifications that the rest of the T14 can marshall.

The horse derby criterion is too strict.

If someone's dad isn't chartering a yearly plane to a triple crown race (or at least Saratoga Springs), then you joined the wrong frat.

Exactly. So there's clearly no need for it to be within driving distance.

clsballer1 wrote:There are differences between fratty and bro

1. Don't have to be in a frat to be a bro. Being in a frat does not make you a bro. An unusually high percentage of bros are in frats due to the fact that the frat lifestyle is conducive to bro'ing.

2. Being a bro is not about what you wear. Most bro's naturally wear brolo due to its stylishness and comfort. Wannabees equate clothing with brohood because it the only way they can pretend to be bro's.

3. Bro's usually don't really give f*ck about anything. However, they are generally smart and can get good grades, plagued by the itis, prone to crushing brews, slaying sorority chicks(whether in a frat or not), possessing a general unexplained swagger.

4. Fratstars are bro's
edit. fratstars go on month long benders, drink, smoke, and bang more girls than the everyone. Yet they seem content doing these things without advertising them to the world via douchey clothing etc.

This is accurate

Disagree for the bolded, plenty of rich frat kids at midwestern schools have their parents buy them vacations to Mexico for Spring Break, and it's pretty fratty down there. Also, nobody gives a crap about horse racing outside of the south unless there's a horse going for the Triple Crown, and even then people only care about the Belmont and then stop caring as soon as the Belmont's over.

Otherwise you're on the money.

Sorry bro, midwest is per se unfrat and just because you've been to Senor Frogs doesn't make you frat. There's only NE frat and Southern frat. If you use the word "fratstar" then you're just a bro - not frat.

And lol at Belmont. 1) It's all about the derby. 2) Of course people stop caring as soon as Belmont is over bc Belmont's the last leg.

Stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to, bruh.

I am closely acquainted with both UT and SMU. I go to UT and am a Dallas kid. SMU is a AAA grade frat repository. UT flirts with frattiness, but there is enough variety to keep it subdued.
