Greek Life: The Real Story

A Listmania! list by Debbie (90210)
The list author says: "The sad fact of most American universities is that making good grades is easy if students go to class, do the readings, and study for exams. The much greater challenge is dealing with social pressures and lifestyle decisions that can prevent students from making it to class and hinder their ability to study. It is when personal lives impede on academic lives that grades begin to plummet. To prepare for college life, students need to prepare for the overwhelming social madness they are going to encounter on campus.

The best way to prepare is to read college life stories written by real students. I'd start with Smashed and the Fratire series about FSU because they aren't silly, humorous books, they are serious memoirs about things like: date rape, alcoholism, drugs, hazing, social pressures, and violence on campus."
