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 (like rape) 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.

Stanford University -- Kappa Alpha, Brock Turner’s fraternity, joins the list of suspended frats that include:

Cornell University -- Psi Upsilon. Wolfgang Ballinger president of the chapter was arrested after an alleged sexual assault in his fraternity house bedroom.

University of Illinois -- Delta Tau Delta. John Enochs received a light plea bargain for one count of misdemeanor battery, instead of the two charges of felony rape.

Buffalo State College -- Alpha Phi Alpha after pledge dies recently as a result of off-campus fraternity hazing stunt.

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, Delta, Epsilon, Kappa or Sigma. What the hell – don’t join any fraternity. (The above list isn’t all inclusive.)
