We had a guy who hung around our house pretty much past his prime. I don't think it bothered him though. He stuck around for a semester or so. I went back once or twice a few years after I graduated (they'd hired the digital underground to play a party and I wanted to see it). Long story short, I agree, you can never go home again.

Hoo boy...I'm trying to recall how a stripper would have worked out during rush week at the Phi Gam house back 35 years ago........

.....nope...can't see it. There would have been hell to pay then, and I suspect even more these days. Of course, we're talking Nebraska, as opposed to California....

I remember those old guys who were "in town on business" and stopped in to see the house. I doubt much has changed (other than the addition of tattoos and belly rings on the chicks), they probably figure you for an alum that will buy some kegs and schtuff

Ach, you kids! You don't know what old is! When I was a kid, .........


What are you guys gonna be like when you turn 50? Bill Wyman (original bass player for the Rolling Stones, for those who are too young to know this) announced that he is done going out on tour. He's 73. BB King is over 80 and still tours- does over 100 gigs every year.

If anyone thinks they can go back to their frat house years later and still relate to that life, well, let's just say that it's time to move on. Sure, it would be great if the drunken "Let's never stop doing this!" could happen, but unless someone wants to stay that way, it can't.

Old people's fraternity? Isn't that a retirement home?

Marge; Grandpa, are you sitting on the apple pie?
Grandpa: I sure hope so...

or, for those who are just confused once they get to a certain age,

"Cyrus: Kamikazes at 2:00!

Grampa: Well, I don't usually drink after lunch, but - Oh my god! The sky is filled with that kind of plane that crashes into the boat!"

It is truly amazing how quickly you start to feel old! I graduated in May 2006, and my girlfriend/ex-girlfriend/friend-with-benefits is a Sophmore (19 yrs. old). I am by no means saying that the age difference is huge, but last year when I was a Senior, she was a freshman and things seemed sooooo much closer in age. Now, she drunk-dials me at midnight on a Thursday and I have already been asleep for 3 hours, because I have to be up for work at 3:45am.... things change so fast and I miss every second of college.... :(

Stripper night? Oh, you mean "Wednesday." Gotcha. (joking) As for rush, I remember the summer before my freshman year going on a rush date to Mexico. My mom must have nerves of steel. "Mom, going to Mexico, be back Sunday. No really, it'll be fine."

?????

I started thinking most of the guys in the fraternity house were morons by about my Junior year. Make that my freshman year. Not that I quit hanging around or anything. 8p

Sodar I have to agree with you on all of this. I graduated in may as well and all of my friends are calling me during the week asking if im going out on a wednesday or tuesday cause its dollar draft night. Then they all start giving me crap cause I wont go out. Its ok they will understand soon when they are all out of school.

It appears there is a young female now filing charges for being raped at a frat house last week and they haven't even got over the Lacrosse Team/Stripper/Rape fiasco yet?????????????????????????

BTW, the 3 Lascrosse players defense costs have just surpassed $2.5 million dollars and there is no end in sight. An organization has been formed by alum and students to collect at least $5 million to help these 3 guys out and keep from them and their famalies from going broke and having to file for bankruptsy. After 3 weeks they have accumilated only a little over $500,000. And it's all over a couple strippers they hired??????????????????

I remember that too, but while I was living there, one of those old guys was Johnny Carson. He didn't exactly bring a keg, but it was cool to sit around chatting with him. Funny guy.

Another interesting old alum I recall stopping by one day was astronaut Eugene Cernan. Also a very cool guy.

Werd, I graduated for the second time in May 2006 and 21 hours my last semester was a piece of cake compared to this working business... I'd still rather be in the poor house, partying all night, and skipping class to go wakeboard though!

Our alums (who never stopped by incidently) were John Wayne, David Letterman, Brad Pitt and others. A guy I work with and I were talking about this and he completely shut me down when he pulled out his trump card, Ron Jeremy.

When the "old" guys stop by is great because they are suppose to bring "alumni beer" so it is free beer...and they can never drink as much as us so it is even better becuase they try and always make themselves look bad.

Ummmmmmm.... Mr. Ames.... the Duke is a USC Alum!

He instead attended the University of Southern California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Southern_California) majoring in pre-law, where he was a member of the Trojan Knights (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trojan_Knights) and joined the Sigma Chi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigma_Chi) Fraternity. Wayne also played on the USC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Southern_California) football (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_football) team under legendary coach Howard Jones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Jones_%28football_coach%29)
