Frat Boy

A pledge of a fraternity is called a pledge, and a fraternity member is called a brother. Fraternities are sometimes called frats and can be either an undergraduate or a graduate fraternity.

That kid in your class who thinks he's better than everyone else because he is in a fraternity. The dude wears New Balance because he has to show other people that he is white AF. Frat boys drink shitty beer, tries hard to get laid every night, and wears Vineyard Vines because they think it's cool. (Source:www.urbandictionary.com)


There was a time when every college freshman was told what a fraternity was, what a pledge would go through, and how they were admired for their strength of character. Nowadays, many freshmen are unaware of the connection of these groups to frats. When it comes to college and frats, society's views have changed over many years, leaving the frat boy to be whatever he wants. The question is, what does he want to be?

Frat Boy doesn’t really want to go to college, but he realizes that he needs the college experience. However, like so many others, he’s convinced that the college experience is different than what it actually is. This is why Frat Boy doesn’t want to go to a prestigious private school. He wants to go to a college where everyone can rough it out together and party without having to go through the hassle of becoming part of a tight clique.

Colleges’ push to eliminate all-male groups is indicative of higher education’s overall dismissal of the needs of boys and men. Universities glorify the masculinity embodied in men’s athletics, largely ignore the emotional needs of their male students and then denounce “toxic masculinity.” But most aren’t providing the spaces or resources to encourage boys to learn about healthy ways to be men.

An increasingly popular fiction, reality TV show, and widely-disseminated memoir, the story of the Frat Boy is one that can be read from any perspective, highlighting a variety of issues: identity, the recklessness of youth, identity crisis, and the importance of family.
