5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life and I've yet to meet a Columbia student who wishes we did. We function beautifully and cohesively without any Greek life or Sports. If being in the "in-crowd" in high school wasn't for you, then Columbia IS for you.

College Senior

Greek Life: We don't have any of this available on our campus.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: No Greeks on my campus, but I would like to be in a fraternity so will probably join through another campus.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I would love to join a sorority and I think you would have to join through the city, not through Columbia.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Columbia. Honestly, it's one of the best things about the school!

Columbia does not have Greek life, yet Columbia is proud of that. Student life is so rich with activities, organizations, clubs, and events that Greek life is pretty unnecessary. You won't be disappointed. Community is something Columbia does very, very well.

Residence Life promotes community-building activities that Resident Assistants are in charge of in every dorm. Each week, each month, and each season, RAs are working their tails off to bring their floor together to build a rich and thriving community on their floor. Activities include everything from trips to the Field Museum to Sunday Sundaes.
