3 College Junior

Greek Life: You either do it or you don't. Not a big deal at this school

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life at Belmont, if you even want to call it that, is a joke compared to most other schools in the nation. They take themselves pretty seriously but they would be the laughing stock at any other school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The fraternities and sororities here are definitely not what you imagine them to be. I'm not in the greek life scene so I can't say too much on that, but many people here seem to be indifferent to them.

Forget everything you’ve heard about the Greek system when you come to Belmont—the fraternities and sororities on campus aren’t your typical party-throwing, clique-forming organizations. Like most Belmont students, the Greek community is morally grounded and welcoming. Many events thrown by Greek organizations are open to the entire campus, including the popular “Disco is Dead” dance hosted annually by Alpha Tau Omega. In the spring, all of the fraternities and sororities showcase their talent at Greek Sing. Each group performs a dance and musical number—and of course, since it’s Belmont, the numbers are pretty incredible! The non-Greek students come out to support their friends and to see which frat or sorority puts together the best performance.

There is no special housing available to Greek students at Belmont. However, since people in the same frat or sorority do spend a significant amount of time together, they’ll usually end up as roommates in one of the on-campus apartments or scout off-campus housing together. As on any college campus, you’ll have some girls or guys who don’t spend much time with non-Greeks, though they’re few and far between. The Greek system isn’t for everybody—there’s a relatively small population of Greeks on campus—but it’s just another way to find that tight community of friends at Belmont.

  • Each year, Greek life organizations participate in Greek week, which is a series of competitions that each sorority and fraternity participate in to try and win the title of Greek Week Champions. The activities range from physical tasks, a mock fashion show where guys vie for the title of "Greek God," community service projects, and Greek Sing, where each fraternity and sorority changes the words of a popular song to praise their own frat or sorority. They also choreograph a routine to go with all that singing. All of campus is invited to watch the Greeks have fun and express their Greek pride.
