Synopsis

This novel creates for the reader a vivid picture of life on a college campus. FRAT HOUSE, is a contemporary fiction story which features the life of William Bradley Wilson, Jr., also known as "Brad". Brad, a typical, eighteen-year-old, young, African-American man has just entered college. One of the central conflicts is that Brad has to attend a historically black college rather than a big state university like he had planned. Due to circumstances that he had created, Brad was given a choice by his middle-class parents to attend Canton State University, a fictitious, historically black college in North Carolina or to join the military. Choosing the college with much dismay, Brad had it all figured out; oblige his parents for a year, and then transfer to the big state university. Darius Freeman is Brad's best friend since childhood who is totally opposite of Brad. Focused and self-directed, Darius is also very smart and very rich. The two together go on to experience all of the excitement of attending college like the freshman experience, first love, and fraternity life. They have fun, experience success, tackle defeat, look forward to the future, and face tragedy as they turn from "boys to Men".
