7 Things You’re Likely To Find in a Frat House – A Girl’s Perspective
brooke July 31st, 2017
1. Plates of food:
Of course, most homes have meals, and most are served on plates; but these are unique. These plates make their way into the most unthinkable areas such as the foot of the staircase. Feelings of guilt spring up from that one plate of food because you almost want to save it or else its future will forever be out of your hands. I guess when someone is hurrying to class and forgets to eat breakfast, that plate of half eaten beef stew could come in handy.
2. Objects You Can’t Explain:
A frat house holds items that make guests stop dead in their tracks, observe and wonder what they’re looking at (in that order). A framed image of Betty White or a tricycle at the end of the hallway can make anyone wonder if there’s a story behind it. I feel as if these items are physical forms of an inside joke in which I am always unsure whether to question or not.
3. That Girl:
There is always “That Girl” who you know from that one random class last year and makes you feel uncomfortable as you watch her pressing her hand on your friend Brad’s chest and walking around the house. Turns out “That Girl” who never said a word in class and looked like she read books about soil for fun has a side to her that you now know of. Frat houses hold secrets and discoveries, but it is not guaranteed that an outsider to always witness it.
4. Black Lights:
It is almost expected for at least one room in a frat house to have a black light. Ironically, black lights are not black and make the room appear blue, causing particular colors to glow. I guess this type of lighting gives off “good vibes” and makes anyone feel like they have to take a nap or listen to angry rap.
5. Random Yelling:
You can be a victim of random yelling at any moment. The culprit of this yelling is rarely determined but it can be at any time of the day. This form of yelling is not from pain; however, it can be generated for a variety of reasons. For example, a sports player made an excellent pass on television or Jake simply got laid.
6. Empty Bottles:
Of course, with any accomplish, there should be some sort of trophy. That is why frat houses take pride in displaying their colorful collection of empty bottles. If they want to spice it up, a goldfish with water may be added in one just to add an artistic effect. I mean, who could argue with recycling?
7. That Guy with a Pet:
The guy with the pet is usually nonchalant and doesn’t even have to introduce himself to any girls because they will simply run up to him first. The pet (usually a dog) is especially the center of attention and you may hear an echo of “aww” across the house.
Through the variety of findings in a frat house, the final and most notable one is its irreplaceable brotherhood and I’m sure any fraternity agrees.
