Tengaged to go Greek?
Oct 2, 2008
- An idea came to me about the group function and I want to put it out there to the tengaged community and see what the response is. I would appreciate any and all feed back either as a post on here or mail message.
I think implementing a Greek system could be a great idea for the Tengaged community. Fraternities and Sororities have been around for quite some time at the university level and I think it might be a nice idea for Tengaged, too. Here are some of my thoughts:
1) There could be charters or mission statements for each sorority/fraternity so you know what kind of group you are getting into. Often each is known by the kind of reputation they have around campus. Likewise, I'm sure each would get a reputation here on Tengaged.
2) I feel there already exist some tight bonds between a few guys or a few girls. And after reading some blogs, it looks like the female population of Tengaged desires some means of coming together.
3) It could increase Rookie/Casting relationships. Rookies could act as mentors to those in casting and if a casting person has a group of friends they can turn to, there is a greater chance they will stay with Tengaged.
4) Depending if this is a popular system, when enough fraternities and sororities are cultivated, we could create intermurals. Usually these are sports activities and the different group compete, but we could come up with some ranking system based on how members of your frat/sorority place in games, so you can have bragging rites or something along those lines.
5) We could have 'mixers' where one fraternity and one sorority get together for a game. It would make the greek system stronger and improve bonds across gender lines.
6) Each organization could elect their leaders by term (whatever they decide), so everyone has a chance to lead or even leave and join a new fraternity/sorority if they wish.
Some items I have not totally figured out in my head are:
1) Is this going to be more devisive, rather than a system that brings people together?
2) In the greek system you can only belong to one greek organization. Would that work here on Tengaged?
3) Would there be a rush or hazing of new people into the frat/sorority?
4) Would there be a limit on the number of people in each organization?
5) Does Tengaged even need a system like this? Are the groups already functioning in this manner?
6) Should they be open groups? Closed groups? Open and then closed?
Again, thanks for any feedback you may have!
