My Friend the Jew "The system had been operating all around me from the day I came to college, and I had never seen it. I was a non-Jewish freshman pledged to a Jewish fraternity." (October 1934)

I agree about the abrupt ending but a fascinating read anyway. What an incredibly different world. I never had the slightest bit on interest in belonging to a sorority.

Yeah, me neither. I think those heavily Greek schools must be a very different animal. Sororities and such were barely a presence at mine, except when the Black frat did the Steps, which was really cool.
