3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have no opinion besides it is a waste of time to me

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are two only things that I don't love about Auburn University. One is the lack of parking. The second is how little they allow student-workers to work (20 hours maximum - and unlikely to get a full 20) at minimum wage. Obviously, Auburn University knows how much it costs to be a student here. Yet, they limit their student workers to working only twenty hours a week. If I could only work ten or fifteen hours more, my finances would be a lot less tight and a lot less stressful.

Greek Life: Greek life is incredible.... If you're apart of it. It truly runs much of the social life at Auburn. Sororities flock to the concourse, where they promote their activities and what not. Everyone I know who is apart of Greek life loves it, but that's expected. In a way Greeks sort of alienate themselves from anyone outside of their fraternities or sororities. If you're a rich, white, conservative the chances are you will fit in very well with Greek life, and if not..... Auburn might not be the school for you.

Greek Life: The Greek life is great if you are into that social scene, but they include non greeks in their activities.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is so much better than I thought it would be. Love it.

The general consensus is that going Greek is mostly your own personal choice. Greek life is prevalent, but it doesn't dominate the social scene. Some people never go through rush and are happy with their choice. Others stay with a particular fraternity or sorority throughout their entire college career and are equally happy.

There's no doubt that pledging is a great way to meet a lot of people and become involved in a lot of activities. However, if fraternities or sororities aren't your style, then there are plenty of other opportunities to get involved in school. Keep in mind that not all Greek organizations are social. There are several sororities and fraternities that are community related, if that's more to your taste. No matter what you choose, you should feel comfortable with what you do.
