Welcome to Will to Live, a RP set in the fictional town of Monroeville, Maine. Orginally a small fishing village turned college town turned tourist trap, long-time locals are now outnumbered by newcomers in their ever-expanding hometown. Plots are primarily member-driven, with a wide range of interesting and diverse characters to interact with. Feel free to jump right in; fresh perspectives and ideas are always welcome.

SO! vii and I were talking in the cbox about having another big site-wide family (OPEN TO EVERYONE!!) so that we can have lots of fun plots to go along with that. This is just a space to plan things out/sign up for the family.

Basics (feel free to add on/suggest changes):
  • The family lived in Manhattan until they lost all their money. (Embezzlement or something awful like that...maybe the family accountant hasn't actually paid their taxes for them for the last 10 years??)
  • They own a summer house on Whale's Way, and since it was paid off that was the only thing they were able to keep.
  • All the adult children who have lived in the lap of luxury their entire lives now have to get jobs and learn how to function as actual humans in Monroeville.
  • The family is latinx, and possible NPC parents could be Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderras
  • The mother named all of her children after Shakespeare characters
  • ...that's all I have so far!
Feel free to also talk out your char(s) here while we get everything planned!

Rushing


So, you want to be in a sorority or fraternity! The first step is to decide which one you'd like to be in. It's a good idea to research the chapters to see which one most closely aligns with who you are as a person, and which you would most likely fit into. Keep in mind, once you decide where you want to be, they also have to decide that they want you.

Rush, or recruitment week, occurs a week before the fall semester starts each year.

Fraternities hold very informal "get to know you" events. These include open invite parties where all interested members can learn about each fraternity and meet all of the current brothers.

Fraternities then bid on each student they like. This is an invitation to join, and students can either accept and go through initiation or they can refuse.

Sororities have traditionally had more formal events for their rush week, and the actual events can depend on each chapter, but should include current members telling rush candidates about their experiences through songs, skits, plays, etc.

Rush for sororities starts with a day of social receptions. Interested students should make time to attend each sorority's reception so that they can decide which ones they like the most. The whole week is a "matching period", where students can narrow down their prospective sororities and sororities can narrow down their prospective pledges.

Pledges should check their mail boxes each evening for an invitation to the "next round" from interested sororities.

At the end of rush, when sororities and prospective members bid on each other, the student is invited to join the sorority and move into the house following initiation.
    Note: Sororities are not technically allowed to provide alcohol to students during rush week, whereas there are no restrictions like this on fraternities.
Behavior


So, you're in a fraternity or a sorority. Now what?

Members are held to a certain standard by not only their chapters but by their individual colleges.

Entire chapters can be put on social probation by the dean of greek life at their college, or by the alumni association for their chapter. Social probation means the chapter is barred from exchanges with other fraternities and sororities, and if a sorority or fraternity is on probation and they are caught breaking that, their charter can be removed.

GPA Requirements


This will vary by chapter, but most fraternities & sororities require all members to maintain a C+ average. On a 4.0 scale, this is a 2.3.

Members who fall below that requirement will be on academic probation for the semester following and if they are unable to get their grade up they may be dismissed from their chapter.

Positions and Responsibilities


Chairs include but are not limited to the following:

President: They oversee the chapter, the committees in the house, and the officer team. They are also the face, spokesperson, and role model to the people in the chapter both locally and nationally and the community in which they live.

VP of Membership/Recruitment: Runs recruitment/rush, takes care of membership dues, can also be in charge of songs and music for the chapter.

Membership Education Chair: In charge of all things regarding membership. Can plan the retreats, run new member program, and chapter enrichment.

Treasurer: In charge of deciding budgets, and basically anything that has to do with housing falls under this person-groceries, parties, events, etc.

Public Relations/Social Media Chair: In charge of giving the chapter a good social image. This person will run the social media accounts for the chapter. Can also be in charge of alumni relations, philanthropic events, mixers, etc..

Panhellenic Chair: In charge of everything regarding the Panhellenic Counsel and their concerns.

Running for an Office


For a member who wants an open chair, they must complete an application, and announce their intention to run for that chair. Then, a formal election will typically take place. The application and election process may be different for each chapter.
