3 College Junior

Greek Life: There aren't any national one except for APO which is pretty lame

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I loved being Greek at AC! It was a great experience. I would recommend it to anyone looking to make close friends. There are only about 5 sororities and about 10 frats and they are all pretty specific with the type of people they have, so if one fits you, go for it!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life here is local to Austin College.

The number of students participating in the Greek system may seem like a lot sometimes, especially when these students are usually the most involved in other campus organizations, such as student government, Residence Life, and most of the major clubs. Greeks definitely have a presence in the student body, but it is not overwhelming. Most Greek parties are open to everyone after a certain time, and Greeks are anything but exclusive. Greek members hang out with members of other Greek groups, as well as non-Greeks. There is not a great amount of discrimination by Greeks to those that are independent.

If you think you want to go Greek, there's a Greek group for everyone, whether you're preppy, athletic, average, a non-drinker, a misfit, a partier, or obnoxiously happy. However, if Greek isn't your style, there's also a place for you in another kind of organization, and you won't feel completely lost in the social scene. The school's fraternities and sororities are all locally chartered, so it is not like the normal Greek scene you’d find at larger universities. Rush and New Member Education take place in the spring, and if students don't want to pledge their first year here, they can postpone it until their sophomore or junior year. In general, fraternities and sororities are just another way to get involved, and all AC students love to do that.
