Abstract/Description: This paper examines Greek Life and recreational drug use as two pillars of the collegiate society where college students are violating the 1st and 3rd formulations of Kant's categorical imperative. This is done by the analysis of the motivations behind such actions as hazing and social interactions in fraternities and sororities, and also how the act of using drugs is using your body as a mere means to achieve pleasure. This paper offers a new perspective to the collegiate landscape and attempts to show how this can possibly be changed. This paper can possibly motivate a reformation of the two pillars and perhaps change the collegiate society for the better.
