Greek Life: we have not received any problems til now

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I'm not on campus for a good amount of time to see what the greek life is about and have not looked into greek life overall.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Since I am Greek myself, I think it's a wonderful social atmosphere. However, it feels like the non-Greeks have a very negative attitude toward the Greek community which seems odd to me. I see plenty of Greeks act kindly to everyone and participate in lots of community service activities. Further, there isn't any Greek housing available for the fraternities, which is not good. For sororities, they can live in a corner of campus, which can be very odd. It seems the school in general does not like Greek life, but you can tell the Greek community here is trying to improve them selves.

Unfortunately, Greek life has taken a turn down the path of extinction because of some indecent choices that were made by select fraternal groups. You will be quick to notice that Frat Row looks like lined-up crack houses, or you may imagine them to look like a hide-out where illegal immigrants are smuggled and kept into secrecy. Either way, Frat Row is pretty desolate and nearly abandoned aside from the few frats that still reside there.

The most activity you will see out of the Greeks is Rush Week, and that's if you're lucky because even then there is not a lot of hype. Of course, there are sick parties—that's part of the deal when entering into Greek Life—but they are somewhat exclusive, and nobody really hears about them on campus. The amount of raging done in the Greek system depends on the fraternity or sorority you join, so choose wisely. The sororities are pretty under control, though they do carry somewhat of a stigma for being stuck-up and a little ridiculous. Regardless, Greek life is fun no matter what. It comes with a hefty price tag, but the experience is almost guaranteed to be totally worthwhile.

Did You Know?
  • Greek life offers members several credit-bearing classes specifically designed to maximize leadership potential and enhance the Greek experience. Many of the fraternities and sororities have their annual formals at awesome places like Las Vegas. The bus ride alone is a fun experience, so you can't imagine how great the actual trip is. If you're not interested in being in a frat or sorority, make friends with someone who is, and go as their date!
  • Living the Greek life involves no hazing. It is against ASU code of conduct and a violation of Arizona law.
  • Since there is no sorority housing on campus in comparison to the few leftover frat houses on Frat Row, a common myth around campus that many people seem to believe is that more than six unrelated women living together is considered a brothel according to Arizona law. This is entirely not true. Arizona has no law stating that a group of women cannot live together; there is no correlation between a brothel and a certain amount of women living under the same roof.
  • Some fraternities have had quite a slew of violations, including hazing problems, sexual assault, and drug/alcohol issues. As a result, some have been under probation/suspension for quite some time.
