4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely very prominent on campus, but not necessary to make friends. It's a huge part of the social scene and non-Greeks enjoy Greek parties as well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I hate the greeks, EVERYONE is in a greek function

College Senior

Greek Life: I have no rating for this, I know that a lot of people are Greek and get really excited about it but that's about it.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life is great, but most of the sororities are extremely prejudice against Northerners and there are no houses, which is a huge downfall because that is a vital part to being a tight-knit group

Less than a quarter of the students at Clemson are Greek, but fraternities and sororities still have highly visible social scenes. In addition to becoming involved on campus, going Greek is a great way to meet a lot of people, fast. Although it can be time consuming and expensive, Greek life thrives at Clemson because enough students want it to.

Becoming a member of the Greek community is entirely up to you. There are plenty of fraternities and sororities on campus, all different in their own way. If you are considering becoming a Greek, you should attend the rush functions in the fall to get to know some of the different fraternities and sororities.
