Asian American fraternities has been growing for the last few generations, they feel shut out of existing Greek organizations so they made their own. Some reasons they might want to create or join these organizations are forming a connection with others, going to parties, and sometimes volunteering for an important cause. There has been a raising concern of hazing and drinking deaths in Asian American fraternities such as the Pi Delta Psi that has been accused being connected with a hazing related death of a freshman at Baruch College in Manhattan when they were in a retreat. Although there are no official statistics on fraternity deaths, people are surprised by the small Asian American fraternities that are involved with deaths.
