University of Heidelberg
Heidelberg's university has long been known for its fraternities or dueling
societies, which are the German equivalent of Yale's Skull & Bones.
fraternities attract wealthy, conservative students from old alumni families,
and other students often look down on them (both figuratively and literally in
some cases; the photo above was taken from the Schloss or
Castle, and you can see yellow
paint that anti-fraternity students dumped on the roof of this frat house).
