1 College Junior

Greek Life: I hear about some frats but they are not that big of a deal on campus.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I wish Bryant would accept the Greek community more than they do. They don't realize the impact they have on the community. Greek life raises more money than sports but the school doesn't care because we don't get the same PR as the sports teams. AKA we don't get the funding to help put on events to raise awareness.

Greek Life: Greek life seems to be looked down by most

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life on my campus exists, however, with our new president it has become less a part of our community. A small percentage of students are involved in Greek life and most students do not even know the different chapters at our university.

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.

Greek Week is a week-long celebration held each April, during which members of the different chapters participate in competitions and activities, such as: Greek Olympics, Nugget Bowl (a chicken nugget eating contest), Brain Bowl, and Lip Sync. The celebration culminates with Greek Banquet, where scholarships and awards for Greek Man and Woman of the Year are given out. Traditionally, all members of Greek life also participate in Relay for Life at the end of Greek Week.
