Wow. Just.....wow. And these kids are in college too. I'd call them adults, but I do not know any self respecting adult that would think that "butt chugging" wine is a good idea.
I'm generalizing, but most people who join fraternities/sororities don't do so with the responsibilities of being an adult in mind.
They are looking for social stability (and do not mind paying for it).
Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."
