5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and it's been a great experience. The ladies take pride in academics and are active participants in clubs/organizations and the community. All Greeks have their own housing with a varying amount of people living in the house. The outside views are scattered about the feelings.

Greek Life: I'm not Greek but most of my friends are. They seem to do a lot of volunteering for it and they seem to enjoy being a part of the community.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: A lot of my friends are involved in Greek life, but I've never felt pressured or any the worse off for my decision not to join Greek life. Fraternities and sororities have a larger and more salient presence on campus than I expected, but I don't mind them. Kappa Delta girls annoy me for the most part, and TKEs have a little bit of an iffy reputation--not that I'd write off every sister and brother in those organizations. Mostly I see Greek life through its positive effect on my friends who are involved in it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't like greek life.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Don't know much about it

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

When only 17 percent of the entire student body is Greek, how much pull can they really have? People notice them because most of the time they're the only ones throwing the parties, and people have to go somewhere. But if you would rather not have anything to do with the Greeks, the most you'll have to bear is walking past the houses on your way to class, but even that can be avoided with a little extra effort. If you are into the whole Greek routine, go ahead and pick one. They're a pretty welcoming bunch with just enough variety to suit different types of people. Just don't expect to automatically be a "cool person" because you've joined a Greek house; nobody will notice the change in you.

The thing to remember here is that Beloit Greeks don't fit the stereotype of Greeks everywhere else. They don't pull crazy scams all the time, their parties don't get out of hand, and they don't sport the expected Greek fashion, nor do most of them even play sports. No sir, we've bred a different sort of Greek over in Beloit, Wisconsin. Our Greeks are well-mannered for the most part, though you'll find a real jerk every now and then, and they do their homework. In fact, half the time, a Greek could be sitting right next to you in a class, and you wouldn't even know it until he or she comes right out and tells you. The membership of these organizations can be downright surprising.
