    keggers? trying to score with ?

    The ghost is furious hearing that her sister's boyfriend is too playful in university while her sister is in a nuthouse. Is keggers "beer party" and "score with chicks" bad meaning of "having sex with~"?
    He joins frats, but why did she say "sorority chicks."? As the two are separated so he can't meet girls in frats?

    -ghost whisperer
    ghost- i'm dead, natalie's stuck in a nuthouse, and he's going to keggers, trying to score with sorority chicks.

    A keg party is another name for it. It's called that because kegs of beer are bought rather than bottles or cans.

    -score with chicks ... means have sex with women

    -fraternities (frats) males only
    -sororities females only
    These are groups associated with, but not part of, a university. (Well at least in Canada they aren't part of the school). Also a lot more popular in the States than here, not sure about elsewhere.

    Not a teacher.

    Keggers are not neccesarily a good place to 'score' with grammarians, or learn English.

    The sorority girls attend the parties held by the fraternities. So you go to the kegger looking to score with a sorority chick.

    I think I may have scored a few tmies at those parties... although second conditionals and cleft sentences were never the subject of the conversations I had there!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    In Korean universities, there're lots of clubs for various activities, but they are all for both sexes, not for one sex. So what is fraternity and sorority for?

    Fraternities and sororities have "houses" where the members all live. So there is that social aspect. They perform charitable works. They help each other adjust to college and with studying.

    But mostly, it is for throwing parties.

    Re: keggers? trying to score with ?

    I must disagree with Dave a bit.

    Their purpose is primarily social, yes. However, their purpose is not just to throw parties or go to parties. Their purpose is to form deep bonds of friendship and to create a network of people who in many cases become your life-long friends. Yes, you will find the houses that meet the stereotype Dave suggested, but like most stereotypes, although they are accurate for a few, it's not accurate for most.

    Additionally, it is not necessary to have them live together. On most campuses, the physical house is not large enough to house all members. The others live in dorms or apartments (often, but not always, with other members of the same fraternity or sorority), but the house is probably the center of their social interactions.

    At my university, there were about four men for every woman. I joined a sorority so I could have more opportunities for "girl talk" even if what we girls were talking about was our physics homework.

    There are many other clubs at universities as well, from drama to intramural sports to music to philanthropy to expeditions to... whatever you can get three or more people to want to pursue together. Joining a fraternity or sorority doesn't preclude you from fully engaging in these other activites.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
