One Night at a Frat Party

When some tells you about their night, and how they went to a frat party, most people have an image that pops up in their heads. You might see a bunch of scantily clad girls dancing around, a group of brothers at the house watching, or maybe even a bunch of people playing drinking games. Well I’m here to tell you that you’re in fact correct in your assumptions… for the most part. This past Friday I was invited to attend a fraternity party at the Delta Sigma house on Albion College’s campus. This specific party was being held to “break in” the first semester of the New Year. The party was to be themed as a highlighter party, which means everyone wears white and they throw on the black lights. But, to be quite honest it was really just another excuse college students use to get drunk. I am actually pretty good friends with a lot of the guys who belong to the fraternity, so I was invited to come early and drink with them before the party began. Albion is roughly an hour away from Ann Arbor, so I decided to invite my friend Erica along to accompany me on the drive. We figured it would be easiest to just wear the clothes we were going to wear to party on our drive there. I dawned the standard jeans and a white t-shirt, but when I picked up Erica she was dressed in white from head-to-toe. I assumed she was just really spirited about the party and thought nothing of it. After an hour of a relatively uneventful drive, we arrived at our destination of Albion College. We decided to park off campus so that we wouldn’t be harassed by campus security for parking our car without a permit. It wasn’t too much of a hassle seeing as how the campus is only a fifteen-minute walk end to end. As we approached the fraternity we could easily tell that they had planned for something large to occur. When we walked in, the first thing that grabbed our…...

...kind of parents that raised me to respect my elders, and if I did wrong I knew there was going to be a punishment. Punishments usually never crossed my mind though, because of course you have to get caught doing wrong to get punished. Which I never thought I would, and sometimes I would not get caught. Until the summer I thought my friends and I got away with the best party of all time. My parents never would leave town for a weekend, and on the rare occasions that they did I would not be left the house to myself. I would be stuck staying at a friend’s house until they got back. Except for some reason in summer of 2004 my parents came up to me on a Monday and told me that they would be taking vacation for the weekend and I would have the house to myself. At that very moment I was almost in shock. I could not really say anything. They began to explain rules for when they were gone. Like feed the dog, keep the house clean, cut the grass, water the flowers, basic odds and ends. While they were explaining all of this it was hard to concentrate because I’ve never had the house to myself for a weekend. Light bulbs were sparking in my head, and my parents could see it in my eyes. That is when they then said “Josh you can have a friend over, but no parties”. My heart stopped for a moment. How did they know that is what I was thinking? I came back with the quick response “why would I have a party?” They just laughed and said “you know better”. Later that night I went to my......

Mistake at a Party

...The Mistake of a Party A Normal School Day It was a mild, sunny Thursday in the middle of March at Surewood High School where the seniors were throwing together a Spring Break Senior Bash. The bell rang for tenth period to end. *RING Sierra was standing at her locker grabbing her homework out for that night when suddenly she dropped her History book. *THUD She knelt down to grab it when Brandon came over and bent down to grab it too. Simultaneously, they both knocked heads. *THWACK “OWW!” both of them shouted as they stood up. Brandon was holding the History book. “Uh, I think this is yours,” said Brandon as he gave Sierra the book. “Yeah thanks,” said Sierra as she smiled back. “Oh, by the way, how are you? We haven’t really had time to talk since we were freshman.” said Brandon. “I’m fine thanks, and while I was known for being quiet and shy, you became Mr. Popularity,” said Sierra remembering the big crush she had on him back then. “Ha! I know - hey, how would you like to come to a party I’m throwing tonight at my house? It would mean a lot to me if you would come,” said Brandon. Other students, especially seniors, are now swarming the hall listening in on their conversation, including Emily. A little background on Emily is that she is the most popular girl in school and she always gets her way. But most important, she has always wanted Brandon to be her boyfriend, but that still has NOT happened, and she gets jealous of Brandon talking to Sierra. Emily......

...easily solved because their brothers would help them in any way. It sounds very nice, but to have all these comforts would not be easy because you have first to face all the challenges that would make you to be a member of their fraternity, which majority said that it would not be easy. 9.4 Conclusion Therefore our respondents have joined a fraternity out of curiosity and peer pressure from their friends and they also want to meet new people specifically girls that are pretty and also to party. Others joined because of the so called “trip”, others for their future job because there are members of the fraternity to back them up for their job application. Some people joined because they want to be tough guys in their school or in their neighbourhood and in case they get in trouble with other fraternity there brads will be there to back them up. Others just want to perform the handshake of the fraternity if they see brads from other places and some people want to wear a frat shirt to just to show off or just to be known as part of that fraternity. 9.5 Recommendation Based on the results obtained from this study, the person who wants to enter a certain fraternity should think it over and over, take time to understand the consequences you are about to face, because majority that joined a fraternity did not expect the challenges and sacrifices that they had to face in choosing this path, they also decided to join a fraternity with only shallow reasons not......

... Allen was an unemployed weed head that was living with his friends. He and my mom went on one date and she was “in love”. She asked me how I felt about him because “my happiness meant the most to her”. I told her that I didn’t like him and I felt a bad vibe from him. I always had a good judge of character. Unfortunately, she didn’t listen to me. My dad found out what type of person he was and told her if she didn’t leave him he was going to take me and my little sister from her. She felt as though my dad was trying to tear her relationship apart so therefore, she chose to marry him. That was one of the worst decisions she ever made in her life. Soon after they got married, Allen became abusive. She let him get away with it until he almost killed her. I was only in the fifth grade but after that, I no longer felt like a child. When I made it to middle school the next year, all my teachers couldn’t help but notice how mature I was for my age. Throughout everything I went through I maintained all A’s and kept a smile on my face. While I was going through all of that, I knew I could depend on my Dad. He was always there for me. I moved in with him my sixth grade year because I was no longer happy living with my mom. The day I moved in with my dad was the happiest day of my life. Middle school was the best years of my life. While living with my dad it allowed me to get closer to my older siblings. Seeing as I didn’t act like a normal 12 year old, they didn’t treat me like......

Slumber Party

...Lana Kiser Goldbaugh ENG 111-81 13 June 2014 Slumber Party Thump-thump, breathe thump-thump, breath. My heart beat as if it was pounding out through my brain. I tried to catch my breath. I heard footsteps coming up behind me like an elephant chasing at my heels. A scream pierced my ears and echoed many times in my mind. My thought raced from one thing to another. After locking the door, the four of us clinched in a corner for nearly an hour. My day had begun normal. I remember waking up, going to school, and finding myself with my friends that afternoon. My company was five of my closest pals: Becky, Alex, Meredith, Lee, and my boyfriend Avery. We all had hung out many times before and knew each other well. For most of the evening, we sat around telling horror stories and gossiping about classmates. Time passed quickly and soon it was time to head home. The girls were all planning a slumber party at Becky’s. Her parents had gone out of town for the weekend, and she was not wanting to stay alone. We began our evening of leisure by getting into our PJ’s, and returning to our scary stories. Before realizing it, another hour had passed. All the stories must have gotten to us because before we went upstairs we made sure every light was on in the house. The hair on the back of my neck began to rise as we listened to the cold aching silence. In the distance we listened to three loud car horns and a door slam. We then, jumped away from the window and started down the......

Political Parties

...Political Parties and the Electoral Process Timothy M Mcalister Professor Julie Waldon POL110 6/09/2014 Strayer University Abstract This paper explores the political parties and the electoral process. In this paper I have identified ideological differences between the two major parties, the conservative and liberals of the democratic and republican parties. Though I do not directly state democratic nor republican, it is widely known that the republicans are liberal while the republicans are conservative. Anything to do with the government is always debatable and can quickly change but based on the information I have gathered from books and the internet, listed in my references, I can only conclude from what I have read. Based on the writings of Theodore J. Lowi and Herbert Alexander I have been able to look into a third-party system how it is set up to fail. Between the electoral and presidential lead parties that are wanted and are there for the people, and what they want, will make it. Political Parties and the Electoral Process Both major political parties in the United States have their pros and cons when it comes to the views on abortion, gun control, taxes, affirmative action, and gay marriage. The liberal views of most democrats want everyone to have the rights they deserve, but then they know some of those rights should be limited. Though this seems hypocritical the rights, they want to see,......

Party

...Dinner Party I walked out into my dinning room where I had been mulling over the table all day. I wanted everything to be just so. I glanced at the place settings for the hundredth time, trying to decide if I should sit Alfred Zingale and Matthias Arndt next to each other. It wasn’t that I was worried about conflicting views, actually it was quiet the contrary, and I didn’t want them to be able to double team the other guests. Finally I decided that just because they have essentially the same opinions, I wouldn’t separate them. In my mind they come as a unit because they had co-authored a book. The place cards had been set and I made up my mind that I would do no more rearranging. I bent over the table in my grey sleeveless dress and lit the deep red candles that were extending upward out of the floral arrangement. The guests would be arriving soon and I began to think over the whole situation. Each person has written a book about the dot com industry, how they can be successful as well as how to invest wisely in one. I was hoping to learn a lot of information so I could make a good decision on whether my company would benefit from being online. These thoughts drifted through my head until the doorbell rang. I opened the door to a short plump woman with reddish brown hair in her late 40’s was standing on my stoop. She wore a pale green dress suit, but looked quite attractive. She extended her arm, shook my hand and introduced herself as Anita Rosen. As the only woman...

...Authoritative Literature: AU Section 341 The Auditor’s Consideration of an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern Source: SAS No. 59. This section provides guidance to the auditor in conducting an audit of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards with respect to evaluating whether there is substantial doubt about the entity's ability to continue as a going concern. Continuation of an entity as a going concern is assumed in financial reporting in the absence of significant information to the contrary. Ordinarily, information that significantly contradicts the going concern assumption relates to the entity's inability to continue to meet its obligations as they become due without substantial disposition of assets outside the ordinary course of business, restructuring of debt, externally forced revisions of its operations, or similar actions. AU Section 722 Interim Financial Information Source: SAS No. 100; SAS No. 116; SAS No. 121. The purpose of this section is to establish standards and provide guidance on the nature, timing, and extent of the procedures to be performed by an independent accountant when conducting a review of interim financial information. The term interim financial information means financial information or statements covering a period less than a full year or for a 12-month period ending on a date other than the entity's fiscal year end.

...Parties Walking up the stairs to this loud, crowded, messy house, where tonight’s ‘phat’ party is being held. I take in the horrible smell of burning tobacco floating through the air being produced by young adolescents who have their 12oz. in one hand, and their Marlboro burning in the other. Black lungs, lung cancer, and that terrible smokers cough is all I can think of as I walk past these kids to one of my high school buddies who enjoys getting his pack-a-day of nicotine, tar filled cancer sticks. Is their really such thing as a light cigarette? I hold these thoughts to myself, and continue to chitchat with my buddy for the five minutes or so it takes him to finish his ‘cig’ about random, immature, and funny topics that he will probably forget about in the next 30 minutes. I carry on with my night by taking a few short steps into the crowded party house. Waka Flocka Flames “No Hands” is blaring through the air, people dancing, laughing, talking, and flirting while drinking their 12oz. cans. Standing to my left is at first glance a very attractive young woman, at second glance is a college student whose face is peeling due to the excessive amount of makeup covering her entire face. She is already starting to talk like she is a forty year smoker. I just saw her outside with a full 12oz. that she was rapidly finishing in order to get herself to as many of us young people would put it, “On Her Level”. I keep walking and feel my feet sticking to the floor with every......

Warrior Party

...A Warrior in Politics Bringing In the BIG Guns A new version of old ideologies has been created for the Warrior party this year. Bringing past focuses and new views to this renewed set of political issues that should be fought for. Many things have already happened and millions of people have been affected by these things such as the Marriage Equality right and the Affordable Care act. These issues, however, need to be solved before our country takes a turn for the worst. After years and years of presidents getting up and stating that they were going to make this a better country all we have seen as a nation is our debt get higher as well as our kids. We have allowed states to legalize marijuana which has seemed to increase the amount of users outside of those states. Now that those states have legalized marijuana, users outside of those states want their states to legalize it but non users are not being thought of when it comes to this decision. People are forgetting about the underdogs, those who do not use marijuana nor do they want their families around it. If all of the states were to legalize it then where are those who want to avoid it going to go? Will it affect or pollute the fresh air? Will the phrase “fresh air” even be realistic? Should states even have the right to legalize marijuana? These are some things that will be considered when it comes to legalizing marijuana. Another issue that needs to be focused on is No Child Left Behind act in our schools. We......

Chad and Ashley had been dating since junior year in high school, Ashley believed nothing ever was going to tear them apart, so she thought.

Around midnight, Ashley and Brian realized they had been talking for almost two hours and Ashley saw no sight of her boyfriend anywhere, she turned to Brian and asked, “ have you seen Chad anywhere?” Brian sighed and knew it would soon be time to break the news to Ashley.

He knew Ashley deserved to belong with him all along. Brian, Chad’s best friend had been in love with his beautiful girlfriend since before they started dating, he could just never admit it.

Political Parties

...Assignment: Political Parties The first issue I am going to discuss three different political views on is abortion. It seems as though abortion is such a fought on topic between people of different political parties. This is an issue with two clear sides, but one way of looking at that I had not seen before. It was really interesting to see these three different/similar views on such a big topic. First off is the Democratic party. On this issue the Democratic party supports a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. They argue that this kind of a decision is intensely personal to the women and her family. In this decision, there is no place for the government or politicians. They are on the side of pro-choice because they believe that each and every woman should be able to decide whether they want to be pregnant and have a baby. Woman should not be forced into doing something with their body just because it is what the government is saying. This kind of a decision should not involve the government. Next I looked at the Green party and their view on abortion. The view of the Green party was actually quite similar to that of the Democrat party. The Green party supports a woman’s right to reproductive choice, no matter her marital status. Also, they believe that a woman should have access to a safe and legal abortion procedure. Like the Democratic party, the Green party is on the side of......
