|8 hours 45 min ago||I dislike the atmosphere in South Bend||
and would not want to live there for my 4 undergrad years.
However, Northwestern would be really hard to say no to just as Michigan at an in-state rate was too hard for me to say no to when I was 17.
|14 hours 31 min ago||it isn't for everyone||
but I along with many of my friends in Greek Life believe joining was far and away the best decision we made in college.

I agree the whole thing is childish on all sides (lynch, nfl, media) but it is in his contract. Many jobs require people to do things they do not like to do.
|1 day 12 hours ago||no one is making him play for the NFL||
Part of his job's obligation is to speak to the media. He gives up his right to a certain level of privacy by signing an NFL contract. At some point, if the NFL really wants to make a point, they will have to have him sit out games.

Remind them that Jordan Morgan went 6-2 versus them in the regular season and that they haven't won in AA since the absolutely absurd non-call on Peedi's game winning shot attempt exactly 5 years ago to the day (yes that call still haunts me)

are politics, no need to talk about it here
|6 days 16 hours ago||Michigan||
is very picky about what JC they take students from for the general srudent body. They have a few feaders like WCC. My uninformed guess is that not many or non of these feeder schools are powerhouse JC football programs.

it is easy to do at even decent high schools, but at some, you need to plan this out from the time you are a freshman

moneywise I don't know but probably not because ....
numbers are at just about an all time high (girls houses have gotten massive with many pledge classes breaking 60 girls a year or higher)

are the ones that can actually bring the hammer ... but even then, sig was kicked out of nationals and keep being a thing by just shortening their name
|1 week 13 hours ago||but you are wrong||
for example SAE isn't in IFC because IFC kicked them out in 2011. SAE still exists though. They aren't the only ones, I was just going with an example of the "frat that does mudbowl." And again, at Michigan, IFC (student peers, not the college) kicks frats off, but this does not mean they stop being a thing. SAE still owns their house on private property and has the right to assemble there

Well, your daughter is a girl so if it is a social fraternity, she will not be able to join anyway. She will be able to join a sorority.
- Higher GPA than campus average (it really isn't close)
- Massive fundraising
- Lifelong friendships
Oh, and plenty of posters on this post are Greek and Brian has employed at least two Michigan Greek Life vets to work for his blog.
No one is condoning the destruction. They went overboard. They pay like adults, life moves on.
|1 week 17 hours ago||this is very false||
Nothing like calling the largest umbrella student organization on campus worthless, A couple thousand U of M undergrads are Greek. There are 60ish chapters, Combined, they blow every other student group out of the water in fundraising (as long as we can count the Greek Life kids in dance marathon which we should seeing as it is very Greek.) Not to mention, it generally teaches students how to be men and women.
These guys (and the girls that were with them) messed up in a bad way and will have consequences for that. Life lesson, pay up, move on.
|1 week 17 hours ago||The right to assemble is||
The right to assemble is protected by the Constitution so as long as it is a public university ....
|1 week 17 hours ago||nope||
to your first question. For many reasons, greek life at Michigan does not have a ton of connections to the admin. The houses not in ifc or another council have none. The unconnected are generally protected because they are at a public school so the university cannot take away their right to assembly which is protected by the Constitution.

|1 week 6 days ago||As always, if you are a student||
Take JUB's class. It isn't offered every semester nor is it always in the same department (Am. Cult or School of Ed), but it is an amazing class. You learn a ton, the speakers are great, and you may even get to have that beer with JUB ;)
|1 week 6 days ago||Greeks take their basketball seriously||
I did my study abroad work in Athens and while there, the two Athens area teams were in some sort of playoff and the fans rioted every game. They explained to me that they preferred it on a club level to soccer because their teams were good enough to compete with all of Europe.
Also, Athens is sweet and much love to Air Georgia

I grew up in Midland, it is not for me now (single, post-grad) but it does have some huge benefits especially for families
Facts (Could be Pros or Cons Depending on your View)
- Very Republican
- Very Religious
- Solid schools
- Community vibe
- Superior youth sports set up (awesome facilities for soccer, tennis, hockey)
- Always ranks highly on great place to raise a family
- Highly Educated (one of the highest PHd rates in the word thanks to Dow)
- Biggest for me: You are two-ish hours from everything the state has to offer. AA, Detroit, Lake Michigan, our weak ski resorts, the bridge, etc. If you don't mid a short drive, everything is day-trippable
- Tons of green space, forests, and parks
- Lacks diversity
- Downtown is at best ok
- Nothing is just right there (see the 2 hrs to everything)
- No Post Grad Singe scene (I often hit up BWW when I am visiting my parents; not just for dinner, but as a place to go out because it is almost the only place open after 10. It is that sad)
- Lacks AA's cultural events

|2 weeks 3 days ago||I mean I have issues with MSC as well||
and it has nothing to do with her halftime speech or sports for that matter.
Like any leader of a large group, certain decisions will have a negative effect or at least the illusion of one. My issue(s) with her were fairly small and not something of overall interest to this blog.
She was a GREAT fundraiser which very unfortunately is basically all that matters.
