3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Only know 1 person, seem a little stuck up.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life at Champlain. However, sometimes Champlain students go to parties thrown by Greeks of other colleges.

College Freshman

Greek Life: No Greeks Here – Simply, there is no Greek Life here. The student body is very tiny, but there are plenty of other clubs you can partake in to make friends and socialize. There are also quite a few events happening around campus or Burlington depending what time of the year it is.

College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Champlain, which is one of the top five reasons I chose to go here. You can choose to party at the few UVM frats because they are close by, but not too many people go. If you want Greek life, go somewhere else.

College Junior

Greek Life: There Are No Frats or Sororities. A friend of mine tried to start a Greek club, but it didn't work out. If you really are adamant on being in the Greek Life, just go to UVM. It isn't what Champlain is all about at all.

Champlain College has decided to not have Greek life present on campus. There are many other social alternatives to fraternities and sororities, and within the Victorian mansion residence halls, the camaraderie is similar. Besides the very strict hazing laws in Vermont and the fact that Champlain is a dry campus, there are no frats or sororities because all of Champlain's residence halls are coed. There was once a joke about turning one into a "fra-rority," but there are still rules against Greek life at Champlain.

The service portion of frats and sororities is covered by the school's Center for Service & Civic Engagement, and social activities are covered by student life activities planners. Greek life is not really missed at Champlain; coming in, students know it's nonexistent. Also, if students want their Greek fix, there are plenty of frats and sororities at UVM that are basically on Champlain's campus.
