3 College Senior

Greek Life: Overall, the Greek life is not as large as most urban campuses or campus towns like University of Idaho (whose Greek life is said to be very serious and sometimes even harmful).

2 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life at Boise State is not very large. We do not have a Greek Row, and I have not heard much buzz about joining fraternities or sororities.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Its my favorite part of school

Wish it was bigger and more like the south

We need a greek row

administration cracks down hard and treats us like a private school

3 College Junior

Greek Life: You mostly can get in if you want but you have to make sure you fit with what they want to do.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is fairly small, but is definitely booming. You will see lots of people around campus wearing their letters, and they seem to always be planning cool fundraising events. Even if you don't join an organization you will still enjoy college, but I think that joining will make your whole experience just that much better.
