By their very nature fraternities are either inclusive or exclusive depending upon how one looks at them. One must pay his dues to even be considered to be asked to join and then pay again to get in. Many do good things; as in their social or community outreach. Many others choose to just drink and see their "brothers" from time to time after graduating. I don't care. Kappa Alpha Psi was founded in the early 20th century and began as an all black, or African American brotherhood. I don't know if a person who is "white" is allowed in, I do not keep up with that stuff any more. Back in the horse and carrage days, when I was doing my undergrauate studies, there was a fraternity that I did consider. They had the best cook and the best maids of all on campus.

Why are these men in their late 20's in college pledging for anything? College students should be 18-21, right?

Long are the days when college students were strictly the 18-21 year-old's. Even when I in college back in the early 80's there were plenty of older students (in the 30+ age bracket) in college. Some where there to advance their careers; some where to change their careers and yes, there were even many housewives looking to return to the workforce after their kids were old enough not to need mommy around 24/7 (like junior and senior high school age kids). Nowadays, folks are going back to college because their employer pays for the tuition (or at least part of it) and/or in order to keep current in today's job market. Grant it, most don't go back to school full time and join fraternities or sororities.

Aren't a few of these clucks way too old to be in college -- 28 and 32 years old hanging around a fraternity harassing freshmen and pledges? Oh shiat, it's in Ohio, that explains it... Never mind.

I had that thought too... but note, the article says "former students."

Dang, that's even worse! Wonder if 'former students' means booted-out, graduated or left? The idea they're still lurking around there don't sound good. LOL.

If Mr. Catz were from Ohio, he would've stood a better chane of picking up on "former students." LOL

I agree with the first part but the "ohio" reference makes no sense. Apparently, you arent very well traveled.
