3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a Greek and the social atmosphere isn't that special.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks Are Respected, but Not Worshipped – Greek life is helpful, but not necessary to make friends. They throw parties and events, which are a good source of amusement, while making up a large portion of all major student organizations, like Choir, SGA, and RHA. They are the campus leaders and held to a higher standard because of who they are and how hard they work, not because the are apart of Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a Big Deal – Not many people talk about their Greek life. It's there, but it's not a huge part of campus life. I've never joined one, so I don't know what the experience is like.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a great part of the Centenary experience. Many students are involved in Greek life, but if Greek life is not your scene, that's okay! Greek life does not exclude non-Greek members when they have social events, but being a part of Greek life is a blast!

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Almost half of Centenary is involved in Greek life. Fraternity houses have parties every once in awhile, sometimes every weekend. Everyone is welcome down at the houses, it doesn't matter who you are.

The Greek scene at Centenary definitely dominates the nightlife on campus. There are no College-owned apartments, and most students live on campus, so the frat houses are where most students go to party. The houses are not technically on campus, so alcohol is allowed at the houses. At the beginning of the fall semester, Rush is all over campus. Otherwise, you'll only really experience the Greek scene if you seek it out. The houses are located directly across the street from campus. Though joining a Greek organization is a good way to make friends, it isn't the only way. It's easy to get to know classmates at Centenary because of the small size and the strong community atmosphere in dorms. Though Greek life is the biggest part of the party scene on campus, joining is not the only way to make friends and have fun. Many of the frat parties are open to anyone on campus. A few of the parties are exclusive, but Greek members don't usually seem too snobbish about it.

Greek life doesn't usually feel too overbearing. The fraternities and sororities often have programs to raise money for charity. Sometimes, though, parties can be like the cliché frat party, with togas and binge drinking. Some frats have gone under probation for drinking violations. The bad thing about the frats holding the only parties is that non-Greeks may feel somewhat excluded.
