When we hear the word “frat” it comes to our mind that it’s a group of people that doing something in possible and bad influence for the students like us. All the things around that may destroy our studies. And we are all familiar to this because it is widely known for different name of groups of people who are organized it. And we are also aware to the effect of it due to the news about what happened to the member of this group that is being abused. And some are died because they cannot survive to what they are doing. And this is usually happen in different schools that have a big population of student just like universities. Because the frat members cannot easily notice if they were involve, due to many students in that place. Not just like in the school which has fewer numbers of students is very noticeable when there is a fraternity.
The word fraternity came from the Latin word “frater” which means "brother" otherwise is a brotherhood, though the term sometimes connotes a distinct or formal organization and a secret society. A fraternity is a male-only association with members who are linked by common interests of some form or another. . People who wish to join typically participate in activities which take place over the course of a week at the start of a semester. Since most colleges with a fraternity system have multiple fraternities, these events usually take place during the same week at all fraternities, allowing people to explore all their options. This period is known as “rush week”. After rush week, current members of the fraternity decide which members should be voted in. Traditionally, new pledges participate in an initiation ceremony which has historically been accompanied by hazing challenges.
Due to concerns about the risks of hazing challenges which involve dangerous activities and drinking, many colleges have explicitly banned hazing in the interest of student safety.
