5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: its one of my favorite things

College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have sororities. Instead we have mandatory groups called societies and everyone is required to join when they first start attending the college. In our societies we fellowship and read the word of God. We also sing and play games.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Nobody really cares what your ethnicity is. Everyone is kind of like a big family together and they treat you just the same no matter what race you are.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Every one is required to join a society. So there is really no difference between people.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Everyone is looked at the same. No one is any different from the other.

Everybody is a Greek member at BJU! All students under the age of 23 are required to participate in the Greek societies. Of course, there are no crazy dance parties, but the societies still have plenty of activities. Sports activities are important on campus since BJU athletes compete within the societies. Date outings and stag outings occur once a year to bond the societies together. BJU societies encourage students to get involved in community service. Rather than wasting time and money partying, students get to serve and be a part of the Greenville community. On Fridays, there’s a society meeting in an assigned society room instead of chapel. The meetings last about 30 minutes, and students play games, worship, and share testimonies. Some students take advantage of the society hour by meeting new people or spending it as a study time.

Each society has its own personality. Freshman rush starts at the beginning of the school year and allows new students to take a peek at the atmosphere and personality of each society before they confirm. Once the student chooses a society, he or she is in it for the rest of his or her college life. Society activities are required every Friday, with each society taking attendance. Joining the right society is the key to surviving BJU.
