How The Frat Guy’s Mind Works

Everyone’s brain works differently. Here’s the journey a thought goes through in a frat guy’s brain. Start at "Am I Talking To Someone With Boobs" and work counter-clockwise.
This is the first stage any frat guy’s thought goes through. If the answer is no, the thought continues on its full course through the brain. If the answer is yes, then he defaults to a series of scripted phrases that are used solely for the purpose of having sex with the boobed person he is talking to. Some common phrases are:
  • "I can’t believe you wrote a ten-page paper. That’s crazy!"
  • "I got a case of Zima at my parent’s summer house."
  • "You’re from [insert name of city/state]. I grew up near there!"
  • "I eat meat, but I am also a "Vag"-atarian."
  • "What made you want to major in [insert name of major]."
The process continues as the thought arrives here, where it’s checked to see whether or not it can be scrapped, and replaced with a quote from the film "Old School." When confronted with everyday statements such as, "Do we need some more milk," "I’m having dinner with my parents tomorrow," or "What’s on TV," the frat guy can (and will) respond with some of these common quotes:
  • "You’re my boy, Blue!"
  • "We’re going streaking!"
  • "Once it hits your lips! It’s so good!"
  • "Earmuffs!"

Since the frat guy is under constant pressure to one-up his "Bros," every thought must enter the Embellishment Stage. At this point, the thought is "enhanced" with the addition of sexual conquest numbers or amount of alcohol intake to make tthis thought more appealing to its audience. An example:
Original Thought:
During Christmas, I saw a woman I went to high school with.
After It Has Gone Through The Embellishment Lobe:
When I went back home, I saw this big-tittied chick that I boned right after our homecoming game when I ran over this 265 pound black dude to score the winning TD. I had, like, 30 brew-dawgs that night, too.
If a frat guy is not currently "boning some slut," getting "totally demolished at keggers," or "partying my face off," then his self-esteem can get dangerously low. At this point, the frat guy feels the need to put down others, which, in his eyes, restores him to his rightful place as Alpha Dog. If a frat guy’s ego is fragile when a thought enters this stage, he immediately aborts his current thought and scans the area for possible targets and begins a harsh barrage of insults. Some common examples:
  • "Hey, look at the nerd. What a stupid nerd."
  • "Fat girl alert. Three o’clock."
  • "Yo, why are those Argentinians always hanging out here?"
  • "Check out those fags, bro. Total fags."
No frat guy thought is complete without a one-word description of the person you’re speaking with.  It can be either be the opposite of that person, e.g. (when leaving after hanging out with a group of friends) "Later, fags."  Or it can be an aggressive derrogatory remark meant to engage someone in a possible phsyical altercation (When leaving after hanging out with a group of enemies) "Later, fags.

    Actually, you get exactly what you pay for:
    You pay for your rent in the house; for your food; for your attendance at parties, events, celebrations; plus sometimes a shirt, or a sweater; And occassionally for charitable donations (in my experience usually an optional cost seperate from dues). The ability to make friends is usually a result of the whole “people/social skills” thing.

    I am It’d be really cool to be all high and mighty and think that’s ridiculous somehow and that I’m a mindless drone force fed that response, but sadly no. In truth, I paid just as much to my university for the same. People join fraternities for personal reasons, much like everything else they do. If people like this guy above want to somehow think that a simple affiliation is proof positive of some ignorant stereotype, well, by all means go for it. I’ll never run need to tolerate him or her in real life I’m sure.

    That being said, I take the graphic for what it is: entertainment. To that end, I think it’s pretty funny.

    a) looks good on paper, but how true is that? you and i know.
    b) the fact that you think that fraternity guys are NOT paying to make friends only shows how you can justify being part the whole system. some of the dues I’ve heard people pay to belong in a frat/sorority are ridiculous.
    c) so does everyone else. unless you like to be woken up in the middle of the night to have to run laps around the track.
    d) uh huh. i went to a tier 1 university and there were still stories of haz…oh wait, maybe they called it team-building or establishing brotherhood.

    This was the fraternity man of the 80′s and 90′s. The Greek system is actually turning around and the men are more respectable now, not the people you make them out to be. There’s a thing called risk management tat was developed and now the fraternities are going back to the old days. Thanks for the dated stereotypes. Real cool dude.

    this is so true! because in real life people conform to every low budget college-comedy movie stereotype, and actually act out and say the asinine things that hollywood writers 20 years out of college believe its like.

  13. Jason says:

    Obviously the writers of both this article and these ridiculous comments have never actually learned anything about men in fraternities, other than perhaps watching a few comedy movies. Greek organizations have higher campus involvement across the board, have produced 17 of the last 25 Presidents of this country, and are generally better off than their non-Greek counterparts after college. So ridicule us if you feel it necessary; we’ll be busy taking solace in the fact that we will, in all likelihood, be richer, happier, and more successful than you. And to the person who mentioned the old (and frankly tired) stereotype of “paying for your friends” I have a question for you. If a person paying to live in the dorms makes friends with his roommate, is he paying for his friends? If someone moves into an apartment building and befriends the guy two doors down, is he paying for his friends? If you pay the taxes in your city and get to know your neighbors, are you paying for your friends?

    Next time you morons decide to talk about something you don’t understand, why don’t you just shove your thumb up your ass and focus on a topic you can at least vaguely comprehend.

    Jason, there you go continuing the stereotype. What’s with always wanting to shove something up a dude’s ass?
    Also, I’m wondering if any of you notice a difference between frat boys at colleges out in the sticks and frat boys at colleges that are more urban.
    I go to a college in the city and hardly notice the stereotypical frat boy but i’ve also visited some friends who go to colleges out in the sticks and they’re literally everywhere you look.

    All I know is that most of the former frats I work(ed) with are kind of annoying once you get past their false, brotherly front. They don’t seem to continue their education at all, and frequently spout knowledge/suggestions/ideas that’ve been obsolete for years. I can’t expect anyone to comprehend how terrible this is without having had worked in a situation detailed as such.

    So, following the stereotype that exists whether some of you like it or not: If you want a position of authority that doesn’t require knowledge of job position and accordingly, make tons of money regardless of the fact, join a non-progressive fraternity! You’ll be set for life…

    I was in a fraternity for 2 years… this article, despite its lack of evidence or support, is pretty much spot on. Of course, it does not take into account the nearly 1% (wow) that actually do some good for their communities and schools. The movies aren’t simply perpetuating stereotypes… they exemplify truth to a very large extent.

    Paying to live in a property or paying the goverment and paying to be part of a group are two different things. If I pay rent and don’t talk to my neighbors, I got exactly what I paid for, a roof over my head. If I pay my taxes and don’t talk to my neighbors, I got exactly what I paid for, not getting kicked out by the city. If I pay to be part of a frat and I don’t talk to anybody in the frat, then I didn’t get what I paid for. Does this logic make sense to you?

    And I’m just curious which frat handed this cute little paragraph to you to make you memorize so when this moment arrived you could be the valiant knight with the irrefutable logic? Bro?

    Rip on the greek system all you want but the fact is that most of the influential figures in sports, politics, and fortune 500 CEO’s/leaders in this country have been in the greek system. It provides a vast networking system for members to connect. Not to mention there are many advantages to being in a fraternity. Being able to help out the community through organized activites. Donating to charity. The greek system at my school donates over 2 million dollars a year to cancer. Another plus is there are regular events to meet new individuals throughout the greek system. Why wouldn’t you want to meet more people?! Life is about networking and meeting new people. I went to a school with over 30,000 students. If you want to meet a good amount of people a good way to do it is through the greek system. I had two jobs and was in the greek system while attending school. It was just a way for me to meet new people. Was I paying for my friends? Hell no..Do I like everyone in my fraternity. Hell no! You’re not always going to like everyone.

    Most people don’t like frats because

    1. You would never get in/ or you didn’t get a bid
    2. You are socially awkward
    3. You don’t understand the concept that knowing people gets you places.
    4. You are too afraid of negative stereotypes
    5. You only want to be friends with your highschool friends in college rather than break out of your shell.

    a) most fraternities expressly forbid fraternity funds paying for alcoholic beverages
    b) the fact that you think that fraternity guys are paying to make friends only shows how much you misunderstand the whole system

    You see, I think it is funny that you list these for reasons people hate frats. From what I have noticed, a lot of the kids that join frats do so because they ARE socially awkward, they are too scared to break out of their shell on their own and resort to paying money for their friends… or should I say their “brothers”. haha If you want my respect don’t be afraid to be your own person and break into the college seen a true individual, make new friends on your own, not in a house… network yourself, not through a frat.

    A bunch of Isaak Hayes’ after the Scientology episode of South Park.

    Some of the commenters have taught me that fraternities now a days might not be good at taking a joke or applying a reference to an amusing stereotype rather than a to real individuals. While I acknowledge the tarnished image of fraternities I think that the best thing to correct that image would probably be continuing to support the positive actions that several of you have spoken of rather than allowing people to read your comments and say “stupid frat boys cant take a joke.”

  34. David says:

    Eh, depends on the fraternity, some are like that, some aren’t. I’ve met guys from other fraternities who are exactly like that and other guys who are polar opposites. Of course they don’t laid very often but whose keeping track right?

  35. HeHateMe says:

    When I got to college there was a rush event across the street I went to. Typical frat guy was giving us the low down on frat life-”yeah we like to party, if u need to study you can always find someone to study with you, but we know how to party, and we play IM sports, but we party most weekends”…and this continued for 5 minutes. At the point he realized he was losing me and my roommate he brought over the “smart kid in the frat” and told us how many credits he was taking. Wow 21 that’s impressive…..”yeah well I’m on academic probation so I guess I need to party less.
    Reason’s I didn’t join:
    I don’t want to pay someone elses beer tab.
    I can make my own friends.
    I value sleep.
    I don’t want to be someone’s bitch for a year.

    @ Jason

    I am sorry but it is time to face it that there are members of fraternities that act like this (I know some and I know some more that don’t act as the “comedic” chart implies). Just like every other group in the world has people that act like assholes that affect the opinions of how society see the group as a whole, christians, muslims, etc. All of these have the same problems. Just because you paid money to get into it doesn’t grant you immunity from being ridiculed.

    Also it is easier to have a higher average when your group has a minimum of usually 2.0 on GPA’s and smaller than the other groups being compared. Just like you can’t help people who represent frats being dicks, we can’t make every dumbass study.

I also heard a lot more disturbing shit, like hazing activities. At 3 in the morning, you would be surprised how much the drunken frat boys really, really want to see that garden hose shoved up the young recruit’s “lily white ass.” Disturbing, sick shit. Yeah, I called campus security, to no avail. So I called the police the next time, to even less results. At least campus security suspended these guys for two days!

    the reasons people join frats

    -too white to join a real gang
    -too insecure/shallow to understand you don’t need people to fufill you or have others affirmation to make you feel like a somebody
    - like to show how you can pay for having others to do so
    -you’re spoiled and stepdad/mom is paying for it anyway
    -to get a thrill out of doing stupid stuff and knowing you’re likely not to get in trouble for it
    -can’t make your own friends pass your own exams.

    It’s a stupid picture. I’m in a fraternity and i looked at the picture, it made me laugh for a second and that’s it. I can’t believe there are that many of you who seem to have problems with fraternities. People join fraternities because they want to be around like-minded people, who enjoy hanging out together. There are a lot of stupid people in this world and its true, some of those people do join fraternities, but you can’t let a few rotten apples spoil the whole bunch. It’s narrow minded to think that all fraternity members want to do is drink and get with girls. My fraternity does a lot of work on campus and have raised a lot of money for an organization to find a cure for Alzheimers. Now for the people who feel its nothing but a waist of time, that’s ok for you to think that, you’re entitled to your opinion, but is it really fair to knock something that you don’t fully understand?

    now i know the stereotypes aren’t for everybody, but the overwhelming majority of frat guys that i know (including 3-4 of my friends) fit the profile and have average/less than average grades. there’s this frat douche in some of my EE classes, and he barely squeaks by. once he was in one of my project groups, and instead of meeting with us one Friday, he “had a party he couldn’t miss” and fucked some way-too-drunk slut, then bragged about it while we congratulated him for not helping us with the project. and they wear those gay hollister shirts and frayed backwards hats.

    IMO, it seems all they care about is “scorin’ some pussy” to assert that they’re manlier or something, by getting with some drunk finance chick that 100 other guys have plowed.

    and just cuz you’re in a frat doesn’t mean you’re the only ones who help the community… at my school, there are countless clubs and service groups that will take anyone who wants to help.

    I’m going to start out by saying that this entire page is filled with, and based off of, trolling, but I will go along with it. I am not in a fraternity but my best friend is. When he gets out of college he has a job lined up for him with a six figure salary. Joining a fraternity is not simply paying for friends. He has openly told me, when asked about the topic, that there are brothers who have flat out never paid dues but never have been kicked out either. There is a difference between frat boys and fraternity men, as stated earlier. And if you do any research you can see that the greek system does a lot more good for the communities they are parts of than they do wrong. It is complete hypocritical bullshit for GOD DAMN INDEPENDENTS to condemn all greeks when it is those same GDI’s that go to “frat” parties and support the houses by giving up their money for a chance at some pussy because they are not invited to any other parties or social events.

    #2 The majority of these people commenting are gdi’s who were deemed unworthy of a bid, even by the lower tier houses that blanket bid. Since you’re not part of a fraternity, and thus not invited to parties, formals, etc your fragile ego is imbued with feelings of envy and self-pity, along with the feeling of being left out or excluded. Hence, your automatic reaction is a defense mechanism that finds any and all stock insults you can hurl at fraternity men.

    #3: Everyone in college drinks a shit ton, smokes some herb and tries to get laid. The only difference is that fraternity people are more visible because we roll in larger packs and late night or pre-game at the house, as well as have organized parties there. Being more visible than others makes you a target to be judged as a horny, alcoholic retard who cares more about being intoxicated than going to class.

    #4: Greek organizations raise more money for charitable purposes than non-greeks. We also donate more community service hours as well. Furthermore instead of going to class, taking notes and then parroting back the information for four years we actually confront challenges, accept leadership positions and work together. We plan parties, rush events, charity fundraisers, balance the chapter’s budget, plan alumni events and other things that gdis cannot do.

    This is perfect. A HUGE majority of frat kids, and others are exactly like this. If anything, college taught me how to avoid hiring and promoting people like this because they’re so narrow-minded and short-sighted. Anybody like this (and there are a lot of them) are extremely stupid. They are only capable of stating the obvious and/or asking lame-ass questions. Exactly the kind of shit that lands you in an average job with an average salary with dumbass kids and a shitty marriage.

    Yea its hilarious because at the college I attended the average GPA for fraternities was always above the all mens GPA average. As a community our Greek system raised over $100k for charities and some even give out scholarships to kids so they can attend college. But yea we are all just a bunch of drunken womanizing assholes. I guess thats what happens when someone who has never been in a fraternity takes all his knowledge of fraternities from Old School and Animal House. I also knew much more engineers and management majors in the Greek system than independents, and both are ranked very highly in the country.

    i lived next door to a frat for a year in college, and these geniuses would get drunk every weekend and piss out their window. if that isn’t classy enough – they’d actually be pissing onto their own cars! idiots!

    these are our future leaders? the thought nauseates me.

    oh, and before we start singing praises about how great frats are and how all these people in power were in fraternities, let’s not forget George W. Bush. yes. that’s right. in a frat, was the president, STILL a HUGE IDIOT.

    Roxy – Well like I said. Not all fraternities are the same! There are bad ones and good ones. But don’t hold all fraternities/ sororities accountable for some students actions. There are plenty of people outside the greek system that cause problems in college! It’s not just the greek system. How much money did you donate to cancer? I bet you didn’t raise over 2 million dollars. lol How many times have you held events for elementary school children. I bet none. That is just a small portion of the community services the greek system contributes to in the city I went to school.

    Also – many influential women in this country are in the greek system. George W. Bush was in Skull and Bones. That is not a Fraternity. It’s a secret society. Maybe you should learn some more about the greek system before you bash it because apparently you don’t know much.

    I have worked overseas in London and many students in the UK are jealous of the opportunities the greek system provides since they do not have one.

  115. Alex says:

    Maybe there was some confusion. George H. W. Bush was in a fraternity (DKE I believe), but George W. Bush was in the Skull and Bones.

    Either way, fraternities have a lot to constructively offer college students. I’m sure there are some terrible ones and terrible people within good ones, but all of the fraternities where I live are a great asset to the community.

    I second that! A “frat” is what you see in the movies, basically just a drinking club like you see in “Animal House” or “Old School” for the younger readers. In reality, fraternity men have to do a lot for the school. For one thing, most fraternities have to maintain a certain GPA, usually somewhere between a 2.4 and a 3.0. If it is any lower, the school will punish them or their national council will punish them, like take away funding. In addition to this, fraternities have to do community service, set up a philanthropy, and attend educational seminars. There are a lot of pros to joining a fraternity, but also a lot of cons. Some of the pros: partying (why most people initially join), networking (job for after college), experience (something to put on a resume). Some of the cons: now this is going to sound very “frat-guy-like”, but one of the cons is that GDI’s hate you. Dues money can add up and people will judge you based on their perspective of your house. You’re no longer Jerry from Sigma Pi, you’re just “that-pi-guy.” Not all fraternity people are bad, some are, but not all.

    This was pretty funny, but I’d have to say this is NOT limited to frat guys. This could be extended to the following groups:

    - High school jock
    - Semi drunk guy at popular nightclub
    - Drunk guy at office party
    - White trust fund kid
    - ANYONE who thinks a backwards baseball is an acceptable fashion statement

    The frat guys I personally knew didn’t fit this mold, and were more the ladder climbing, pre-Facebook, networking types in business or political science and had a lot of charity work under their belt, but then again, I wasn’t going around looking to be friends with a bunch of rapey douchebags.

    From what I know, this is more the behavior of frat boys at party schools.

    Hey, chill out guys. Most frat guys are total broskies. Lame ass broskies. Its a fact. I’m not in a frat, but some of my best friends from freshman year joined frats.

I’m drawing my conclusions from real life D-bags, NOT comedy movies. And people don’t just create stereotypes for the hell of it. Its based off of something. And don’t worry, letting some of your brothers get you dangerously drunk, eat eggs and gross shit till you puke and make you there bitch for a year is totally going to make you a successful person in the adult world.

    Your friends ditched you because they shared more experiences with their brothers than with you. And it’s not all bad stuff like getting “dangerously drunk, eat eggs and gross shit till you puke.” It’s hanging out at parties, doing community service, and other stuff like that. They share those experiences which makes their friendship stronger. Everyone has their own place. Fraternities are not for everyone and there is nothing wrong with that. And yes it is a stereotype, not all fraternities haze. So do some research next time.

    the bottom line is that college students as a whole love to party, get laid, have lots of friends, experience as much as they can, and then go on to be successful in life. I am the president of a fraternity and here are some simple facts: We do party, we do love girls, we are extremely explicit on the manner in which girls are treated i.e. as ladies and persons of high esteem, our cumulative house gpa is nearly .8 higher than the average gpa for men at the university and has been so for at least five consecutive semesters, our house was founded as an academic literary society, the academic standards of the house are in fact higher than those of the university and academics is one of our main concerns, in my state more successful persons have been generated in my house and greek row as a whole than any other organization and i’m talking governors mayors ceo’s lawyers doctors professors deans religious leaders etc. It is absolutely astounding to me how so many young, intelligent people can stereotype an entire academic demagraphic based on “animal house” or the decadent and uncharacteristic fraternity that is their only experience of greek life. Are there some bad ones out there? yeah there are, but by and large the vast majority of fraternities are value based academic organizations that greatly benefit their schools and communities. For those of you who are nay-sayers out there i would encourage you to at the very least educate yourselves on the topic before taking such an aggressive, naive, and narrow-minded stance. My best wishes to all

Everyone is just as guilty from the executives to the avg. americans in the working class like yourself buying houses they can’t afford..or trying to make profit in the short term with a potential increase in housing values but housing market burst so everyone was shiz out of luck when they tried to sell the house for profit or they lost their job.

    While not all frat boys are bad.. the normal ones don’t get labeled frat boys. There are way, way too many people in the greek system who behave exactly like this. There are far far too many people that go into the greek system because this is what they think it is.

    There were precisely 2 students murdered at our school during my time there. Both were frat members killing other frat members. And everyone involved was completely wasted. And this is at a school with a relatively ‘respectable’ greek system.

    And yes, some people are right – this varies a lot by school. What might be a reputable, decent greek system at one school can be a stereotypical booze and rapefest at another.

    Just because you have an experience, doesn’t mean everyone else will.
