Did You Remove Your #Fraternity from Your Resume?

Okay, I’ve been warning you. If you haven’t removed your fraternity from your resume, you should do it now. Last chance. There are basically two types of fraternities; those who have done something publicly offensive and those who haven’t…yet. It would be best not to admit to being a member until after you’re hired. Even after you get the job, you may not want to confess.

It appears that another pledge may have died recently as a result of a possible off-campus fraternity hazing stunt. The student was pledging for the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity at Buffalo State College in New York. He may have been forced to drink a toxic brew that led to his illness and death, although that is still under investigation. Buffalo State President suspended the fraternity. The national governing body also suspended them. I guess there are still fraternity that believe hazing is a useful endeavor.

Alpha Phi Alpha joins the list of suspended frats that include:

University of Florida – Zeta Beta Tau fraternity for obscene behavior.

Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA — Sigma Nu for posting an offensive sign.

University of OK (not to be confused with You Okay) – Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members sang racial slurs on a bus.

Yale — Delta Kappa Epsilon for offensive chants.

University of Arizona – Sigma Alpha Epsilon for racial slurs and off campus behavior.

Cal State Northridge — Tau Kappa Epsilon for hazing and sexual misconduct and Pi Kappa Phi for the death of a student.

University of Michigan — Sigma Alpha Mu and sorority Sigma Delta Tau for trashing rooms at a ski resort.

Clemson University, SC — Sigma Alpha Epsilon for racism.

Wesleyan University — Psi Upsilon for possible rape (law suit)

Georgia Tech — Phi Kappa Tau for offensive e-mail.

Arizona State University — Tau Kappa Epsilon’s hosting an offensive racial themed party. Also at ASU in 2013 — a drunk member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was dumped at an emergency room. In 2012 as student drowned after a frat event.

Do you see the trend? Don’t join any fraternity with the Greek letters of Alpha, Epsilon or Sigma. (The above list isn’t all inclusive.)

  1. My Fraternity was the USMC. I’ll never take that off my resume.
