At least at Princeton University...

Princeton University is cracking down on any incoming students that wish to rush a fraternity or a sorority.  The Ivy League school actually has a long-standing tradition with not recognizing the social clubs.

According to NBC 10,

"The administration announced last year it would ban first-year students from Greek activities starting in the fall of 2012. School officials said they hoped that delaying rush would cut down on drinking and keep freshmen from limiting themselves socially to Greek organizations.

Freshmen who participate in other Greek-sponsored activities could face disciplinary probation, a punishment less severe than suspension."

I was in a sorority in college, but I waited until my sophomore year to rush.  My parents thought it would be a good idea for me to wait and see how my freshman year unfolded before jumping into a sorority.  I think it was good advice (for me, at least...) and I'm glad that I listened to my parents.  (For once!)
