Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Although only small percentages of female students and male students are involved in Greek life at Bryant, the fraternities and sororities still have a noticeable presence on campus. One reason for this is that members tend to be very involved in campus and the community. They do a lot of programming, volunteering, and putting on philanthropic events and causes; many members are involved in other clubs and organizations around campus, as well. And then of course there are the parties. Much like the rest of the Bryant population, Greek life members tend to be "work hard, party hard" kind of people. Greek parties are among the biggest on campus, and attendees often dress to match the party theme (if there is one). Popular themes include highlighter parties, ugly Christmas sweater parties, and '80s.
Greek housing at Bryant is different from many other schools because there are no designated fraternity or sorority houses. Instead, members are given the option to live in Hall 1 after freshman year, which serves as Greek life housing. One perk of this is that members who choose to live in Hall 1 are automatically placed there, so they do not have to deal with the dreaded lottery system. Seniors typically live in the townhouses, which serve as their fraternity or sorority houses.
