Fraternities and sororities

Fraternities (male or coeducational[?]) and sororities (female) exist on university campuses across the United States. They provide a community for higher education students.

There are various types of fraternities: social, professional, and honor fraternities. The most recognizable (and cliched) form of fraternity is the social fraternity, as lampooned by John Belushi in the film Animal House.
