    A fraternity, as defined by the The American Heritage Dictionary is "a chiefly social organization of male college students, usually designated by Greek letters."(pg. 523) This definition, however, is very limited and leaves plenty of space for short sighted people to believe the stereotype conveyed by the popular media, where fraternity members are depicted as drunks who accomplish nothing either scholastically or socially. Unfortunately, both this definition and media portrayals fail to mention the fact that membersh

In sixth grade, I walked in the parade when I played my first and only year of youth football. It was just to show I was a fo

    The Revolution in Diplomacy and the International Order Traditionally before 1750 foreign policy was made by ministers and generals from the nobility, and when it was made it was usually for their benefit. It was common for the general public not to have a say in any matters of foreign policy, and public opinion was not given. Unlike today where public opinion is very important when leaders attempt to come up with foreign policy. Today if the general public disagrees with the policy those in charge usually do not move forward with their idea, because they want to get reelected. This was not

There are many different types of friendships that we have, and they each play a different role in our lives. Some friendships may be valued more than others, but they are all important. One type of friendship that we all have is the “we
