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..

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.

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.
