Last one for doing copy paste from my twitline.

1. Drpd mikirin sop kambing. Let me tweet about Greek Row! Sejak dua bulan lalu gw pndh ke daerah dkt kampus which is deket ama Greek Row.

2. What is Greek Row? Basically it is five blocks street full of Frat n Sorority Houses. Clustered along 17th street, between 45th and 50th.

3. Sering liat american teen movie yg pernuh parteh, alcohol, dr*g, se*, dll? Those streotypes are far from the realities. But-

4. Kalau mau ngrasain hal2 ky gt bs dtg ke Greek row tiap thursday/friday night. There are always frat/sorority houses yg host parteh!

5. What are frat/sorority? Mereka semacam organisasi yg anggotanya terbatas, biasanya satu gender doank, and srg buat akitivitas brg.

6. Fraternities isinya cowok semua. Sororities isinya cewek semua. Asalnya dr sistem Greek house and nama mereka jg pakai huruf Greek.

7. Misalnya Delta Kappa Betta atau Chi Kappa. dan biasanya ada nickname buat msh2 dr mereka kaya “the delts”. Gimana cara namainya? Ckp unik

8. Cara namain frat/soro mereka tergantung dari huruf pertama moto organisasi mereka. So misalkan motonya “bersatu kita teguh”, nama fratnya

9 -bakal jd Betta Kappa Tau (Bersatu Kita Teguh). Dan mottonya dalam bahasa Greek juga tentunya.

10. Nah ada beberapa kontroversi ttg greek system. Yg pro, bilang org yg join bs dpt banyak manfaat: komunitas,koneksi,aktivitas,dll

11. Tapi yg kontra jg banyak. Ada streotipe org2 yg join frat/soro bakal: abuse alcohol, parteh terus, free s*x, dan terutama ada hazing.

12. Hazing alias perponcloan. Kadang ada sistem rekruitment yg berbahaya, mengandung pelecehan, dsb. Tp tentu aja ga smua frat/soro ky gt

13. Basecamp frat/soro ini bertebaran disepanjang greek house. Mgkn ada lebih dari 40 frat houses and 30 soro houses di greek row.

14. Uniknya mostly dr smua house2 itu arsitekturnya bergaya “tudor”. That is the name even though I can’t explain what it is. Haha

15. Intinya model agak antik semacam gereja katedral jakarta versi mininya. Haha

16. In short,if you want to feel “an american teen movie life”,visit their parties.Free for (pretty) girls,20$ for men (ugly/handsome). :p
