The easiest way seems to be have them make friends with a member and have
the member ask them. If they are friendly with some of the members and
call and ask to join, they pledge for a while and can be ordered to do do
things by the members without the members losing influence points.

Either that or start one of your own.

Sooooooo, the question is how do I know I'm making friends with someone
who is a member? Do they run around in togas? ;-)

Some of them do. The easiest way though is just to use the college
directory. They are listed by their house so just call Sims in the house you
want to pledge.

You get an option on the phone to join a Greek House. The members come over
and you have a time limit to get their relationship level to a certain
point. It is possible to do. But in the case it does not work out, your
sim can phone them up and build a relationship with those Sims and then try
again.

I have started several of my own Frats. I like to have the members ask
their friends and relatives to pledge. They simply have to spend sufficient
time hanging around the House and then they become members and you can
invite them to move in if their is room. During the pledge time you get to
boss them around. I think that is the fastest and easiest way to do it.

I'm English - so I don't bother at all. I'll take your word for it. It's
an American thing, the idea of Greek houses.

Indeed. We have no such thing as frats either. We have some
interesting customs that mimic a lot of their behavior though, but...
no houses.

I'm not a hundred percent sure, but I think that your Sim has to already
know at least one member of the group before the option appears.

Frats and Greek houses are the same thing.

In many ways, 'Greek' society isn't much different than the House
system in England - but it's self organized and seperate from the
school.

What house system? Oh, you mean school houses? Not everyone went to that
sort of school!

As I understand it, the Greek/Frat/Sorority system is based on (the idea of)
ancient Greek schools - Plato wandering round his olive grove spouting off
and so on, hence the togas. The Greeks had fraternities and sororities
(that's where the names come from) too though the sororities were far less
numerous. I'd have thought it (the American system) would have had more in
common with German colleges than English educational systems since so much
of the American educational system is based on German models (hence
kindergarden) but I know next to nothing about how German universities are
organised. If there are any German readers here - do you have fraternities
and sororities in your colleges?

Trouble getting charter membership, trouble with the wallmounted
letters, trouble being a member of your own frat when you apply,
trouble joining other houses, trouble with friends and house levels...
trouble getting people to join...

Not everyone who goes to (university level) schools in the US joins a
frat either.

Fraternities/Sororities have nothing to do with school per se. They
are about communal living and social support - not education.

Yes, that's right but they are based on the idea of the schools of ancient
Greece.

I have had none of those problems. I got some hacks to take care of various
problems with University and with overflow problems before I even attempted
a Greek House.....
