3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved in this party but i heard it is good for joining this group to be social.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is certainly there and you can join if you want but you dont have to. We have like ten of them all together.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: While Greek life is pretty popular on campus, people won't think of you differently if you aren't in a frat or sorority. Athletic teams throw parties that are just as good, so you don't have to go to the frat house to have a good time.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I didn't participate in Greek Life when I attended Bentley.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life tries to get more people involved at the beginning of the year and in between semesters, but after that Greek life keeps to themselves and is very exclusive.

Greek Life at Bentley is slightly untraditional when compared to other local universities. There are no fraternity or sorority houses on campus, and only a few frats have brothers who rent a house off campus for the purpose of having parties. They are a visible force on campus, but mostly serve a social purpose. The events and fundraisers run by the Greeks are something to be proud of; however, their main function is to appeal to those who have a compelling need for sisterhood or brotherhood.

The Greek campus events are usually for a good cause and really fun. Off-campus parties are usually pretty crazy, so be sure to take a friend or two and keep an eye on what you are drinking and how much. It’s basically mandatory for every freshman, especially the girls, to check out frat parties during your first year at college. Frat guys will come to your floor and sell tickets for the party and will run shuttle buses to the off-campus houses. After freshman year, the frat parties on campus are mostly Greeks and friends of Greeks only. Guys who aren’t in frats will have a harder time getting into frat parties, but having a pretty lady on your arm can help.
