"God Damn Independent" Someone who is not associated with groups or organizations, most commonly Fraternities or Sorrorities.
These people think that College should be for nothing and throw their life away because when they hit the job market they don't have anyone to pick them up at a high level of employment.
They usually dress like they shop at K-Mart and drive around in cars they can buy with a couple hundred dollars.
They eat at McDonalds and Burger King because they think it's actual food.
They stay up late studying because they don't know anyone who has taken the course and have no access to a Test Bank.
GDIs usually hate the Idea of "paying for friends" when in reality you are mutually investing with other members of the group in a lodge to meet, sick as rages, community service, and mixers with the opposite sex.
GDIs usually have a group of 20 friends maximum who are also GDIs and they all have no ambition and fail as a group.
GDIs are not self respecting, and usually don't try to better themselves at all except for "college".
They think the "college experience" includes studying hard and making passing grades, when the reality is that networking is essential to living a successful life.
Look at that GDI, he is fat, voted for Obama, and thinks he's the shit.
God, what a GDI, he tried asked if I was on scholarship, I told him that I had a trust fund and I was on PERMANENT scholarship.
GDIs, they're good Friday night, is a slow Tuesday Night

God Damn Independent, a college student that is not in a fraternity/sorority.
What frat are you in? Frat!?!?! Fuck that, I'm GDI!
God-Damn Independent: term used by college students to refer to a non-Greek student. In a derogatory sense, it is used to refer only to those who choose to bash the Greek system. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for Greeks and GDIs to be friends.
Despite the party's location on Greek Row, many of the people who showed up were GDIs.
1. "God Damn Independent" - A derogatory term used by members of Greek organizations to describe someone who has sufficient intelligence and social skills to simply make friends, not pay for them.
"Look at that GDI, he'll go somewhere in life, unlike the legions of coked out worthless douchebags who were misled into thinking that joining a fucking frat was a smart decision."
Acronym for "God Damn Independent," often used in a derogatory way to refer to a college student who chooses not to join any sorority or fraternity.
Seems to be used in a derogatory way the most by people affiliated with the 'Greek' system because they do not realize that 'independent' really isn't even an insult. Typical brainless, follow-the-crowd, frat people. Damn, frats and sororities are like cults. People go in fine and come out brainwashed, dumb, and/or slutty. IF they ever come out.
Vic: What's your title?
Vic: You know, what frat are you in?
Sam: Oh, I'm a GDI.
Vic: Wow, I really think you should go Greek.
Sam: You know, they're not even really Greek. They just jacked the Greek letters and twisted them to use in their half-assed, drunk-partying organizations. I only rushed for the free food. You'd have to pay me to join one.
Vic: Why don't you join?
Sam: Um, it costs money I can't afford to waste, I can make friends on my own time, I don't really want to be saddled with people I don't like, I don't like to do pointless shit, and I don't like how they always call each other 'big' and 'little.' It's hella annoying. Oh, and I don't really like to conform.
Vic: What's 'conform?'
(God Damn Independent). A college student who is not an active or a pledge to a particular sorority or fraternity. The GDI has either chosen to not affiliate with the greeks or maybe rushed and did not pledge. GDI's tend to have a reputation of being dorm rats but some GDIs are cool and have some greek friends. Just depends on the particular GDI. Being titled a GDI should not judge who someone is, its just a decision.
What sorority are you?
Oh im not, im a GDI.
A person who doesn't join a frat because they actually have morals. This person has more intelligence and common sense than any person who has ever joined a frat. They don't pay for fake friends but instead develop positive social skills and make real friends. They don't take shortcuts in life by cheating on tests and actually go to college to learn. Frat losers call these people nerds because they are jealous of how smart and individualistic they are. A GDI actually cares about the feelings of others and understands that life revolves around people other than themselves. They make college campuses a better place and give a better name to their school's reputation. If everyone was a GDI in life, the world would be a nearly perfect place.
Frat Douche: " So how does it feel to be a GDI haha? BTW I am laughing because my frat bro leader told me I'd be cool to him if I did this hahaa. I'm so stuck up and cool cause I am in a frat"more...
GDI: I actually feel like a real person and not some fake insecure frat douche who can't make decisions for himself".
FD: "But youre a GDI. It stands for something bad like um... Sorry I drank 40 beers yesterday, got rushed to the hospital after falling down a flight of stairs and cant remember anything. I even forgot my name. I think my frat bros can help me remember that later though"
GDI: " You sound like a pathetic moron and total tool. GDI stands for "God Damn Intellectual" a term you frat losers say because you lack intelligence and wish you had some"
FD: Ya I'm a total tool and you are right that is what it stands for. I totally forgot, Im so drunk now. Can I barf on you cause I'm cool that way? I wish I had some intelligence!"
GDI: "No but you can go lock yourself in that outhouse all night and dunk your head in the toilet 500 times like your frat bros told you too."
FD:" Ok!That def. sounds cool! And ya i love my frat bros so of course i'll do it! You think I be cool if I did that? Cooler than you cause I cant think for myself?"
GDI: "Yeah you definetely will be..." (smirking with other awesome GDI next to him)
FD quickly runs to outhouse, shuts door.
GDI to Other GDI: "Some people never learn."
Other GDI: True dat! Lets grab some grub and watch the Packers game!
