Nice Move

If you REALLY hate GDIs then these are the schools for you, because apparently they have the fewest drum circles and long boards.

1. Welch College (TN)-98%
2. Lyon College (AR)-92%
3. Washington and Lee University (VA)-86%
4. DePauw University (IN)-76%
5. Sewanee–University of the South (TN)-67%
6. Millsaps College (MS)-60%
7. York College (NE)-60%
8. Wabash College (IN)-52%
9. Transylvania College (KY)-50%
10. Dartmouth College (NH)-48%

Nationally, fraternity membership at universities is obviously at a much smaller percentage.

At the 951 ranked college and universities that reported fraternity participation data to U.S. News in a 2012 survey, an average of 8.1 percent of the male, degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in fall 2011 were members of a fraternity.

We are the 8.1%.

    Welch College: A Christian Community of Faith and Learning. Sounds FaF. US News and World Report Rankings are all bullshit anyway. The first year they did their MBA rankings they listed Princeton in the Top 25 which would have been awesome for Princeton if they had a Business School.

      I am a DePauw alum and yes, there is a lot of beer, but there’s also just as much liquor. Tailgates suck, the school is liberal as shit, the school likes to meddle in greek life, the girls are slightly better than average with very few dimes, and some of the sororities and fraternities are a joke. However, the most of the fraternity chapters are nearing 150 years old so there is a lot of history, the top few fraternities can rival state school chapters, and there is nothing to do in Greencastle but drink and rage.
      tl;dr DePauw as a whole sucks, but the fraternities as a whole are strong.

      I graduated in May, so things should be about the same. The truth is that students at DePauw don’t know much about greek life outside of the DePauw bubble. My father and 2 siblings were all greek at state schools so I have references to draw comparisons and to view DePauw from another perspective. DePauw students party, but DePauw as an institution is becoming increasingly hostile toward the top-tier houses. Also don’t try to defend the tailgates or girls, because that will only show your ignorance. To clarify my previous statement, DePauw as an institution sucks, but the fraternities are strong.

    There’s no way a school has 98% of the kids there worthy of a fraternity. Part of what makes fraternities so great is only the top kids at a school are in them. So fuck off Welch college.
