INTRODUCTION

A. Background of the Study
A fraternity is defined as a group of people united in a relationship, having some common interests, activity, and purpose. It is a brotherhood, as the members usually say, of people at a college or university usually characterized by Greek letters.
For members, fraternity means brotherhood, unity, friendship, trust and acceptance. It means meeting new people, sharing interests and accepting others' as well.

C. Significance of the Study

It is therefore, very important to know what fraternity really is before joining it. And this research paper was made to inform the readers about the advantages and disadvantages of joining fraternities.   

D. Definition of Terms

For better understanding of the study, the following terms are defined, the terms refer to the following:

  * middle class students- the social class between the aristocracy or very wealthy and the lower working class: people in business and the professions, highly skilled workers, well-to-do farmers, etc. are now generally included in the middle class..
*The state or quality of being brothers fraternal relationship or spirit brotherliness.
*A group of people with the same beliefs, interests, work, etc.

Conceptual Paradigm

I want people who were in fraternities and not in fraternities to know that the following information is in support of the fraternity system and also takes the stand to hold individuals in fraternities, and their national conclaves responsible for their actions. That the systems aren't perfect, and some have a lot of improvement to be able to hold to name "fraternity" with honor. I also believe that, in a culture that is stuck in its head, has abanded ritual and rites-of-pass sage (except the rites of getting drunk, getting pregnant, first auto accident, joining the military), a culture that criticizes men for drumming, something that was important to all of our ancestors as a way to get out of the head and into the body, and a culture that I truly believe does not want men to change, otherwise who would we blame and who would do the work that if it doesn't cost a man his life directly, adds to the causes for a shorter life-span, in this culture, born and bred in the United States of America. The fraternity system has the possibility of taking over the responsibility that society has shirked and initiate young men into true manhood in a healthy way.
