“Pledging is the best time you never want to have again” is an overrated phrase. It’s a humblebrag crutch used by brothers to get the point across to whoever they’re talking to that “Boy oh boy did I have it rough back then! I was hazed really hard and made it through because I’m a man!”
You’re not a man, child. Real men constantly push themselves. Real men never stop trying to get better. Real men pledge twice by moving into this luxury Murray Hill apartment in Manhattan.
We are three guys in our early 20s looking for a for a pledge (and hopefully, a brother) to live in the fourth bedroom of our apartment in a luxury building. We prefer that the individual has previous fraternity experience in a middle to top tier house, but it is not required.
The pledge would be signing a lease starting July 1, but only able to live in their room after an undetermined time period where they will pledge your loyalty to the apartment and secret brotherhood therein. The reason for this is because they will be sleeping on the kitchen floor while the bedroom is used for ritual activities and such forth. If interested, the pledge could begin the program prior to the lease formally beginning, as well.
We have drafted a rigorous program that draws several comparisons to that of Sigma Nu, Theta chapter. For several weeks or even months, the pledge will be tasked with maintaining upkeep of the apartment during the day and then hazed by the tenants into the night when they get home from work. There will be additional surprises throughout the program.
We offer tremendous upside in terms of network opportunities, providing a sense of belonging, socialization, etc.
If you think this sounds like an interesting living arrangement, please reach out and we can further discuss the details. Dues are $1,700 per month.
Sigma Nu – Theta, for those of you wondering, is the University of Alabama’s Sig Nu chapter. I can only imagine what kind of tips and tricks these three “guys in [their] early 20s looking for a for a pledge (and hopefully, a brother)” picked up from the Tide’s presumptuously difficult-to-join Sigma Nu affiliate. The “additional surprises” bit is definitely included here as a scare tactic, too. Fear of the unknown has been proven to break men you’d have thought unbreakable.
After 30 seconds of research, $1,700 seems to be a pretty average price for a Murray Hill apartment, though it may be an above-average price depending on just how luxury we’re talking here. Price doesn’t matter, though. You’re not signing with these guys for a well-priced downtown unit. You’re signing a lease with these guys because you want to be a MAN..
