gdi
Also known as a dorm rat. A student that for whatever reason, wants no part of the greek system. They oftentimes sit alone in their dorms on weekends wondering whats going on in the outside world. They have a distinct unfounded hostility toward Greeks, but never hesitate to leach off of them, such as drinking their beer, or attending parties, from which they always end up going home alone. Many of them get all of their information on Greek life from TV and movies, they never bother to do any actual research. According to them, Greeks are "losers who have to pay for their friends." It never occured to them that one of their favorite celebrities is very likely a greek. It never occured to them that a "frat boy" could someday turn out to be, say, some of the greatest athletes/coaches of all time(Michael Jordan, Shaq, Karl Malone, Wilt Chamberlain, Orel Hershiser, Terry Bradshaw, John Elway, Jerry Rice, Emmit Smith, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Pat Riley, Phil Jackson, Larry Brown, Mike Ditka, Tiger Woods, Jesse Owen, Troy Aikman, Lou Gehrig, just to name a few), some of the most famous actors/entertainers(Elvis Presley, Johnny Carson, David Letterman, James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Bob Hope, Brad Pitt, Matt Groening, Steven Spielberg, Warren Beaty, Tom Selleck, Ron Jeremy, Paul Newman, Merv Griffin, Danny Thomas, James Dean, Harrison Ford, John Wayne, just to name a few), (Martin Luther King Jr., Rev. Jesse Jackon, Nelson Mandela, 85% of US Supreme Court Justices, 76% of the Nations senators, all but two US presidents since 1825), a famous astronaut(everybody on the Apollo 11 crew), a famous business owner(43 of the 50 largest corporations in the nation are headed by "frat boys"), or even their mommy and daddy's boss. According to studies, only about half of GDI's end up graduating college, as opposed to 71% of Greeks.

GDI
Essentially indicates that there is nothing for which Greek people cannot come up with a particular label.

Fabulous at being apparently unable to handle ambiguity or individuality of any variety, the term GDI is a universal label applied to all college students who choose not to participate in the Greek system.

Whether the apparent obsession with labeling everything belies rampant intellectual laziness, extreme insecurity expressed in a fear of what is "different" from a certain perspective, or both is an open question.

Either way, the same mentality extends beyond the categorization of the college social structure to brand names (are you a Chanel girl? an Abercrombie man? an Alpha-Delta-Zeta or a Kappa-Gamma-Blamma?), and beyond that to even more insidious forms of labeling, such as racism.

However, it all likely comes down to extreme insecurity being expressed in one particular way; label everything, achieve nothing, derive self-esteem instead from trying to look down upon anyone whom you define as an A instead of an B.
What's your label?

Huh?

I mean, what Sorority are you in?

None, I'm a human, an individual one even

No you're a GDI

GDI
"Good day indicator" - A gauge to help one measure how good the day will be. Normally to achieve a good GDI you must have sex upon waking up. First thing. Not after breakfast or showering or brushing teeth. Right at the awakening. To have a high GDI, orgasm has to occur, no if, ands, or maybes.

For a male: high GDI occurs when fully incapacitated after morning sex.

For a female: uncontrolled squirting or jello like legs with the inability to stand. Or the mixture of all the above.
I feel great today! This morning my girl/guy raised my GDI so I feel like I can take on anything!

What's your GDI at?

GDI
An acronym for God Damn Independent. GDI's are people who actively choose to not affiliate with Greek life. GDI's come in many forms, ranging from the nerdy book worm to the lazy stoner to the Greek wanna-be's. Regardless, majority of GDI's rear their heads during the infamous rush week at schools across the country to get a one week taste of Greek life and it's parties, just to fall back into the traditional dorm drinking life-style shortly afterwards.
So dude, are you thinking about rushing our house?

Well, actually I'm here for the keg.

Pssh, GDI's

GDI
A 'Greek Deprived Individual'. One that scorns greek life, but is jealous they're not apart of it. They often wear cargo shorts, flat billed hats, A&F, Aero, Hollister, and American Eagle. They usually live in dorms, and don't have cool parties or social events to attend on weekends or weekdays. However, some do have houses where they throw their own parties, but they're BYOB or pay $5 to get in. In addition they major in pointless shit like art, film, or philosophy.
