4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no "greek life" per say. No one seems to notice and disrespect anyone.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: My university does not have any sororities or fraternities anymore. However, the college across the street has them. I'm not a part of any of them so I don't know what it's like.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Alfred University doesn't have any sort of Greek life, and I like it that way. Alfred State (across the street) does though, and we mostly just think they're dirty and obnoxious.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have greek life on this campus so I can't answer that

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At my university there is no Greek life, I have heard it is because of past issues that has happened with deaths. I am not fully sure why we do not have greek life

Because of hazing and alcohol-related events, Alfred no longer has any fraternities or sororities. The Board of Trustees met early in 2002 and decided that the Greek life on campus was no longer coinciding with the mission of the school. Because students were getting hurt and some relationships with the community were also hurt, the Board felt that the benefits of Greek life were outweighed by the negative events.

The question now concerns the social life of Alfred students. The Greek houses have gradually turned into special-interest houses, giving students a sense of community, a sense of responsibility, and a chance to take on leadership roles. Events that are planned through special-interest housing will increase communication with the community, as well as with other students, which is much safer than drunken hazing events.
