College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life does not exist at BC. The students all look life Frat boys or Sorority girls, so I don't see why there shouldn't be Greek life.

Greek Life: I AM SO GLAD THERE IS NO GREEK LIFE ON CAMPUS! Builds a better cohesive community rather than a separated community.

There is no official Greek life on campus at Boston College, but that definitely doesn’t stop anyone from having fun! No one seems to notice the lack of fraternities and sororities, probably because there are so many nearby schools that a Friday-night frat party is just a T ride away. Many students consider not having Greek life a positive asset of Boston College life, since there are fewer cliques, no extreme hazing rituals, and no pressure to feel like you have to join a certain fraternity or sorority.

BC provides many other ways to feel like you are a part of a group—athletics, clubs, student government, and other campus organizations create a real sense of community among students with similar interests. Of course, if you are really looking forward to Greek life being a part of your college experience, you can always join up with a community-wide fraternity or sorority—just check out Boston resources to find one you like.
