What the fuck am I going to write about? When I was first given this opportunity to write for This Is College, a million ideas came swarming into my head about all my experiences in college and greek life that I could write about. The nights that turned into mornings, the friends that I'll have for a lifetime, and the stories that are so unbelievable that sometimes I have to ask myself, “did that just happen??”. I'm telling you in four years going from a small town kid, to going to a 10,000 person school in a city. I've seen it all. So where to begin… My name is Luke, I’m going into my senior year at my school in Rhode Island. I'm in a fraternity full of some of the craziest sickos I ever met. When I came to college, I thought fraternities were just a bunch of Brads and Chads (some are), that was until I met Arnie from TIC. Walking into a house freshman year that looked like it should have been torn down or even better burned down as a 18 year old freshman was probably the most important event that happened to me in all of my college years. Little did I know, that the dump of a house would become my happy place over the next couple years as I went on to join the fraternity that called “the mansion” home. Oh the memories that house has given me. The seemingly annual Halloween weekend 100+ person street brawl, the Saint Patrick weekend blackouts at two in the afternoon, and the sketchy walks back home to order pizza at a place that stayed open till 4 am (heaven… I know). It made me think as I'm locked up in quarantine because of the Corona Virus. I need to tell these stories. So that's what the fuck I'm going to write about. The ups and Downs of fraternity life, the trips with my brothers to the casino 10 minutes away from my school to put in our last minute parlays, and overall any story I've experienced or heard about over the years. I can't wait to get on this platform and be able to just write about anything I feel like an average college guy wants to hear about, so fuck it… let's do this! Shoutout @thisiscollege… signing off for now, -Luke

What being a fraternity president is really like.

With the new school year right around the corner and new executive boards for fraternities across the country ready to start their year in charge, I thought it would be an ideal time to tell all those new fraternity presidents out there what to expect from a former president.

It's been a crazy quarantine for This Is College. It started with losing our precious Mezzo Thursday nights (the comeback is going to be nuts!), to launching a new website, dropping new merch, and letting a couple degenerates write on the blog. But, that's only the start.

There is nothing worse than a jersey party!

In what feels like day 1038503 of quarantine, I found myself reminiscing about the good ole days. Mostly the good ole parties. There's very many things that compare to a perfectly executed themed party. When everyone goes hard on a theme you just can't beat it. That being said I came up with this list of the top 5 best fraternity party themes. Some I've been apart of, others I heard stories on. Either way if you throw these themes I can promise and epic night.
