英会話ブログ その666     Fraternities and Sororities (1)

2015/08/04

A lot of young people who are freshman students in American universities may pledge a fraternity or a sorority when they enter the school.

What are these things ?  They are social organizations which are part of the Greek system.  It's called the Greek system because fraternities and sororities use the Greek alphabet to form their names.

Fraternities (for men) and sororities (for women) offer undergraduate students a chance to meet new people and to take part in social activities on campus.  This is attractive to new students who are often going to school far away from their home town family and friends.                                          (G.K)
