Propaganda...It's Everywhere

Propaganda: The spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause or a person. Ultimately, propaganda is a common situation amoungst people, corporations, and espically the media. When companies compete for the best sales or numbers; propaganda definitly comes into play. Lately, I have come across many situations of propaganda; and all occured in my sorority.
Our sorority is an institution; it is an institution based on sisterhood and love, however when it comes to all the sororities being sisterly together it is almost impossible. This last weekend was fall rush, the biggest event of the year. Since sororties live by "recruit or die" fall rush is very important, and is the time to interest as many girls to join your sisterhood. It has been a history of our house that other sororties look for ways to get us rush infractions and convince girls with rumors that our house is no good. They use deragatory rumors and false information to make girls percieve the wrong idea about our house and not even think about joining. This is very rude and unfair for other girls to spread rumors about our house just to increase their own recruting numbers. Without recruiting girls, our house will be ruined; which is why this form of propaganda against our house is very irritating. With girls searching for idead to get our house rush infractions and brain washing girls to join their house and not even take a look at ours is not sisterhood what so ever. Propaganda is a major problem in the Greek panhellinic sororities at our school. Unfourtanatly, it is always against our house.
