3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can not collaborate on this issues. Here in Cleveland we do not judge individuals by race, creed, or ethnic backgrounds...sorry.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am not aware of what Greek life is available at my school; however I do know there is a large Greek population in Cleveland, Ohio.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Not too much happens for me to give a higher than average score.

College Junior

Greek Life: I really have no idea what the greek life is like on campus. I know they are present but in comparison to Ohio university (where I went before) with special housing for their greek members CSU doesn't seem so "big."

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I plan to join a sorority. It is a fairly easy to get involved with Greek life and there are events to join an sorority or fraternity at the beginning of the semester.

Greek life at Cleveland State University is nothing like what you see in the movies, or at any other college, for that matter. Most sororites active on campus are local chapters—meaning they were started at CSU and cannot be found on any other college campus. However, there are a handful of national sororites. Fraternity life at CSU is about the same as sorority life—except there are three fraternity houses, as opposed to the zero houses sororites have.

CSU is definitely different when looking at Greek life. It is not a big deal by any means, but the people who actually are involved are close to one another, which benefits their networking.
