GDI
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 (given that it's easier to casually label things with a broad brush than to learn about them as individuals), 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
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.

GDI
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?

Sam: What?

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?'

Sam: *sigh*

GDI
(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.

gdi
"God Damn Independent"; A college student with the right mind to retain their dignity, individuality, and money by turning away the offers of the Greek system.
Yeah, I was pledging a frat, and I quit after being told constantly that I was "not an individual anymore". Plus, it was more work on top of my schoolwork. What a waste of time. Going back to being a GDI was the best decision I ever made.
