Alex Purdy was looking for life long friendships, support and maybe some philanthropy when she joined her sorority. What she got was a house full of mean girls. When she left Greek life she made this video hoping to inspire change. She says this in the description:

This video is a reflection of my experience in a sorority. I decided to leave last semester and make this video to share my thoughts on how greek life can change for the better. I want to make it clear that all matters are purely my opinion. If you relate to some of the things I said, please share this video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #sororityrevamp to help inspire others to bring sororities back to their roots.


She mentions girls being given weight loss pills to encourage them to lose weight and girls being told to dress more provocatively so that "boys will like them".  Her biggest problem was the lack of compassion her "sisters" had toward each other. So far she's received mostly words of encouragement for her video.

Kids in Roosevelt High School on Chicago's Northwest Side have been receiving burnt pizza, rotten fruit and generally unhealthy, unappetizing school lunches. Most people don't get excited about school lunch but this takes it a little too far and the kids at this school decided to do something about it. They've created something called The School Lunch Project: Culinary Denial where they share information about the school's lunch provider Aramark as well as pictures of unsatisfactory lunches like this one:



Ultimately, their demands are for better alternatives to the lunch they are offered. Currently, Aramark benefits by being the only food provider in school and lowering their bottom line as much as possible. If kids don't eat, the company might have to change their menu or risk losing profits.

WTF of The Day: People Are Rally Angry Because This Math Strategy Says '5+5+5=15' is Wrong

What if someone told you that 5+5+5 doesn't equal 15?

Any sane person with a second grand education would call your bluff. But they'd be wrong. At least, according to the Common Core curriculum.

A photo of a student getting this answer wrong blew up on Reddit last week, causing mayhem across the Internet.

The "correct" answer to solving 5 times 3 would be 3+3+3+3+3.

Supporters of Common Core say that adding 5 groups of 3 together is correct because that strategy will help students once they reach more advanced math.

Back in September, a dad wrote a check in "Common Core math" to show how strange some of the strategies are.

And Common Core has become a hot button issue in the GOP presidential election. The Donald has come out against the academic standards while Jeb! has long support them.

White dreaded girl calls racial discrimination on school that can't stand her hair.

Breaking news: teenagers are teenagers.

8th grade white girl Caycee Cunningham is calling racial discrimination on her Utah school, which is demanding she change her dreadlocks hairstyle.

The school has a policy on distracting hairstyles and unnatural hair colors. Cunningham is saying its a party of her 'spiritual journey' and her mom is getting right in line with that.

Local channel FOX 13 has the story:

After studying abroad in Guatemala, Cunningham at Lincoln Academy grew dreadlocks as part what she calls a spiritual journey in her Hindu beliefs.

"I think they could be a little more accepting of it, and I think they should, because we do live in America and it does kind of boggles my mind a little bit," the teen said.

Caycee's mother Tonya Judd said she received a phone call from the school principal at Lincoln Academy saying Caycee's dreadlocks were against the school dress code and she was asked to remove them.

Judd believes if students of other ethnicities are allowed to wear them, her daughter should be able to wear them as well.

"My daughter is white and there happens to be other kids in the school who happen to be other race and ethnicity and they have hair that can't be combed, and there's never been an issue regarding that before," Judd said.



Ugh.

Nibbles thinks he’s a dog, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Watch as this Rouen duck waits patiently for his best human friend Johnny to come home from school, and as soon as the boy is in sight, he completely loses it.

Johnny also greets him with a few kisses on his bill once all the quacking starts dying down a bit.

It’s only a matter of time before he learns to bark.

His owners explain that Nibbles wears a tiny diaper so that he can go on car rides and spend time in their house.

Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the clips on their YouTube channel.

Here they are going for a walk down the street together set to “Stand By Me.”

And here he is eating Johnny’s homework, just like a dog is supposed to do.

Well this certainly was a graduation that the students will never forget.

At the TNT Academy commencement ceremony in Georgia on Friday, the Valedictorian’s speech was accidentally left out of the program, so the crowd had started to disperse when he got up to speak, and not everyone was paying attention.

That’s when the school’s founder/director Nancy Gordeuk stepped up to the microphone to tell everyone that they were being rude.

“Look who’s leaving… all the black people,” she said.

As the video shows, the room quickly reacts to the racist comments with some people approaching the podium and others walking out in disgust.

Gordeuk has since apologized in an email to parents, in which she says “the devil was in the house and came out from my mouth,” according to 11 Alive News in Atlanta.

She also issued the following statement to NBC News.

Frustrated with the prospect of ruining the once-in-a-lifetime ceremony the graduates have worked so hard for, my emotions got the best of me and that is when I blurted out ‘you people are being so rude to not listen to this speech.’ I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech.

Here’s another video of the incident that includes a moment before the racist remarks where she calls someone a “goober” and a “coward.”

“She’s off her rocker,” says one of the men in the video.
