God Damn Independent

At my college, a person who calls them self a GDI is a hypocrite. They look down on anyone in a fraternity and pretend they are against the idea of fraternities. But in the same breath, they brand together and call themselves GDIs, they have a GDI house that holds parties, they wear clothing that says "GDI", and they have GDI formals. They dress in bright neon clothing, skinny jeans, and flat brimmed hats. They bash fraternities and believe they are smarter and cooler than any Greek.

It's funny because GDI hates frats with such passion, and yet they are oblivious to the fact they act just like a fraternity.
"Frat parties are so lame. Come party at GDI instead, where we'll do the exact same thing frat guys do, but at half the fun."

Someone who's highlight of life thus far was the dvd release of finding nemo. Seen rarely in its natural habitat as few dare to venture into its sausage-fest dorm hole. Never known to slay box, or consume frat-water. Spends weekends playing halo and consuming mass quantities of hot-pockets and mountain dew. Known to study and NEVER party.
Be extremly cautious around this species as inherently fratty gentleman have been known to cause head-explosions.
Common test prep of a GDI:
Frat - Locate test bank
GDI - Locate all optional and supplemental readings

Frat - Invite sorostitute to frat castle for intense study session of French wine & human anatomy
GDI - Skip playing Halo 3 and begin memorizing all the chapters of the textbook

Frat - Have pledges recite old exams from the test bank while you spit skoal at them & watch Wednesday Night Baseball. Then, hit the bars.
GDI - Have Halo 3 GDI buddies review your flash cards with you. Then, hit the bottom bunk of your dorm room

Frat - Thanks to the test bank & the hot sorostitute to your right, finish the exam in under 30 minutes. Shoot a mini while walking out of the classroom.
GDI - Have nervous breakdown after none of optional material is tested, and fail to complete exam. Soil cargo shorts while walking out of the classroom.

Frat - Purposely kill brain cells
GDI - Locate all optional and supplemental readings for next exam

Frat - A . . . job is lined up for you after graduation.
GDI - C . . . what life is like bagging my groceries.

Someone who doesn't join a fraternity for some reason. Maybe they're a douchebag who shouldn't join in the first place, or maybe they're balled for some reason. Regardless, they are not fraternity material.
"I don't wanna join a frat because they are gay," said one GDI. "Well, I guess you wouldn't fit in to my fraternity anyway. We don't refer to our brotherhood as a frat. Would you refer to your country as a cunt? If you would, get the fuck out of my house. If I see you again, I'll haze your ass so quick I won't even be able to 'ball your ass."

Religious people who can't explain scientific stuff say "God did it!". GDI is used to make fun of those bigots.

God Damn Independent
Someone who leaches off the frat system, comes to parties, drinks fraternity beer, and goes home alone. They like to think that fraternity men "pay" for friends, but they can't possibly know, they weren't good enough to get in a fraternity to begin with.
Someone kick the GDI out of here, he's drinking all the beer and scaring the women.

"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
