Greek Life: we don't have greek life

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: These questions are irrelevant as we do not have fraternities or sororities at Bard. I think this is Bard's greatest selling point. For as many faults as this school may have, they at least having nothing to do with this ridiculous Greek life.

College Junior

Greek Life: No Greeks! There is no Greek life at Bard. We do, however, have a surprisingly large number of actual Greek students.

Greek Life: It doesn't bother me at all that there are no frats or sororities. I don't think frats would work at Bard, or at least they wouldn't be taken seriously. Bard students aren't into that kind of thing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is no Greek life at Bard. Many students view fraternity or sorority living as a nuisance, and the fact that there has been no student effort toward establishing Greek organizations at Bard attests to that. Students here are by no means happy with all aspects of the social scene, but they agree, almost unanimously, that bringing Greek life to Bard would do little to help anything.

So, all you Otter and Bluto wannabes take note: this is not the school to come to if you want to spend four years of your life in an Animal House. I guess there's always Keen-Cruger (see Campus Housing). That's about as close as you can get to a Greek-type atmosphere at Bard. At Keen-Cruger, wild parties are pretty much commonplace and there is never a shortage of beer. Other than that, Bard students are content to experience Greek life solely in their philosophy and mythology classes.

The closest thing to a frat at Bard is the Feitler House, a politically minded, all-organic and vegetarian, vegan-friendly co-op nestled atop a low, hammocked hill overlooking Annandale Road. Feitler residents don't throw too many parties, and there are certainly no hazing rituals required for membership, but they do exist as a somewhat exclusive, homogenous sub-society.
