Benefits?

To make themselves known.

Downside?

Not classy for me.

Bottomline: Sure, you get known. Question is, what kind of reputation does one get in doing so?

Thankfully, that's not TAU ALPHA's style.

Stupidity is not the lack of knowledge, but the illusion of having it.

There are gangs and there are pseudo-frats... then there are fratmen and there are U.P. Fratmen... and finally, there are The Argonauts of U.P. Diliman.

Since 1932. Nothing more. Nothing less. No one else.

The term "vandalism" originated from the name "vandals", which were a very destructive tribe of barbarians who sacked Rome (if memory serves me right). Kinda ironic for greek letter frat men to commit this act, since frat men are supposed to be "civilized" and above the "barbarians".

I may have scribbled our frat's logo in my notebooks and yellow pads, but I never go beyond that.
Vandalism is a such rare thing in APO, in fact it has no place in APO. However, if one is proven to have done such act, he/she shall be summoned by the disciplinary committee to be given a "simple reminder" about the negative correlation between APO and vandalism, and for him/her to restore the vandalized area.

Fortunately, I still have yet to encounter such an event.

para sa akin, hindi ako sang ayon sa vandalism. pwede naman ito gawin as a project gaya ng wall painting na kasama ng logo ng kapatiran, at least maganda pa tignan at kaaya-aya, though aminado ako na may mangilan ngilan parin kaming myembro na gumagawa nito :(  pero sa pangkalahatan, ginagawan na ng paraan.

Vandalism HAS NO PLACE in TAU ALPHA. It is not in our nature as Alphans to do such things that we deem beneath us.

If we want our name and seal exposed to the public then we have to do it the right way.

Is this being arrogant? Is doing the proper way being arrogant?

Funny how some people have the audacity to call me arrogant when they themselves claim to be superior without even the facts and the logic to back up their claim.

Stupidity is not the lack of knowledge, but the illusion of having it.

To answer Admin's query on the negative effects of vandalism, simply put, it makes your fraternity CHEAP and totally lack of class. Really bad for the image. A

As our senior brods would remind the residents: by vandalizing on walls using our beloved TAU ALPHA's name and seal, the implication is that we are in the same level of certain groups that we deem are beneath us. As such, these actions are deplorable and an insult to the Fraternity.

By vandalizing you are not carrying the Frat's name to greater heights. In fact, the effect is the exact opposite.

Stupidity is not the lack of knowledge, but the illusion of having it.

Seriously, Mhike. I really think you should check on the definition of vandalism.

As far as TAU ALPHA is concerned there is no vandalism involved in those that I presented. Our seals and letters were all sanctioned and approved by the University itself.

And as far as cheap is concerned, that's the collective sentiment of all of us Alphans when it comes to vandalizing walls using our letters and seal.

This is the sentiment of Fraternities that give premium to QUALITY and EXCELLENCE.

Stupidity is not the lack of knowledge, but the illusion of having it.

It is NEVER called Vandalism (even as an "art form" :rolleyes: ) if it is properly recognized and authorized by the proper people of authority. In our case, that would be the University officials themselves. -_-

To my knowledge, vandalism using names and/or logos is sometimes used to mark territory. Unfortunately, this practice is usually done by street gangs. Dogs mark their territory as well.

Precisely.

That is what our senior brods were pointing out:

We don't want to be associated with street gangs hence it is not our practice to do such a thing. <_<

VANDALISM is an ILLEGAL ACT. It's not approved and it is NOT PROPER.
