Alex Purdy was looking for life long friendships, support and maybe some philanthropy when she joined her sorority. What she got was a house full of mean girls. When she left Greek life she made this video hoping to inspire change. She says this in the description:

This video is a reflection of my experience in a sorority. I decided to leave last semester and make this video to share my thoughts on how greek life can change for the better. I want to make it clear that all matters are purely my opinion. If you relate to some of the things I said, please share this video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #sororityrevamp to help inspire others to bring sororities back to their roots.

She mentions girls being given weight loss pills to encourage them to lose weight and girls being told to dress more provocatively so that "boys will like them".  Her biggest problem was the lack of compassion her "sisters" had toward each other. So far she's received mostly words of encouragement for her video.
