18-25 year old white upper middle class males who attend universities, and are usually members of fraternities. During free time they enjoy playing sports such as ultimate frisbee, lacross, flag football, fishing, and beach volleyball. They are knowledgeable about most spectator sports and attend sporting events regularly. Bros are often actively envolved in fantasy football, and will form leagues with other bros. They enjoy attending suburban house parties and frat parties, and are skilled at most drinking games. They also have a fairly refined taste for good beer, and can afford to drink it more often than others their age, but still must resort to cheap beer at times. Bros enjoy the presence of attractive women, but are also content with simply "broing out". Favorite clothing brands include polo, vinyard vines, jcrew, and lacoste. Shorts include brightly colored, madras, crittered, seer-suckers and the classic khakis. Footwear comprises mostly of sperry topsiders, flip flops, and asics runners. Hats with pre-frayed brims are popular, as are Costa Del Mar sunglasses with crokies. Bro bands include Dave Matthews, OAR, Incubus, Jack Johnson, Dispatch, and Sister Hazel. Bros drive SUVs and trucks, and contrary to popular belief, do not always lift them, and when they do, the lift rarely exceeds 4 inches. Upper-end colleges in the South contain the most bros. These schools include Vanderbilt, University of Virginia, Southern Methodist University, and Duke. Most SEC schools are bro, and the University of Texas and Notre Dame are also excessively bro. Bros are conservative in their political affiliation, and have a fairly strong value system, although they are often immature in their actions. Many people would consider bros racist, but they can actually tolerate well spoken or respectable blacks that attempt to assimilate into mainstream society. Certain names are more bro than others. Last names that are usually first names, such as Ryan, and last names that are verbs, such as Rush, are bro.

Common Misconceptions:
-bros do not necessarily drive lifted trucks

-bros are not rednecks or white trash, and they actually seek higher education, if for no other reason than that their parents can afford it.


-Bros are not gym rats; they enjoy working out, but are not excessively big

-Bros do not act gangster by any means, other than to mock black culture. They can, however, enjoy rap music on occasion

Yeh, that guy at the Beta house was a bro for sure.
