Greek Life: I'm not familiar enough with the Greek system, but the most visible frat on campus is a co-ed service fraternity that actively recruits on campus.

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't affect the school at all. There are a few organizations, but I do not know anybody in them.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most fraternities/sororities take part in community service activities.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't have much to say about them as I'm not very aware of these things. To me, the different "Greek" clubs are mostly just organizations looking to participate in community service and advocate for certain things, much like any other club. Once in a while you can recognize them in the lobby during a bake sale, but they're otherwise just like any other student. o.o

There are a few Greek organizations at Hunter College that cater to individuals with all sorts of interests. There are honors societies like Psi Chi for psychology students, service sororities like Zeta Phi Alpha, and multicultural fraternities like Nu Phi Delta; there's even a coed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. However, Greek life at a commuter college is really difficult to organize (after all, the main point of belonging to a sorority or fraternity is actually living in a house with other members). Although Hunter has a few sororities and fraternities, most of them are not very active, and their presence on campus is largely limited to fliers and occasional bake sales.

Inside the organizations, however, lie a plethora of opportunities, which Hunter’s sororities and fraternities have not yet been successful in opening up to the campus. Some Greek organizations have causes (like illiteracy and breast cancer) that they are dedicated to ending. Such organizations host parties, shows, and such to fund these projects. Unfortunately, such events usually take place outside of the campus and are often not advertised on campus, which makes "regular" Hunter students question the existence of Greek life on campus. Basically, Greek life at Hunter College does exist and is slowly getting more vibrant, but you just have to watch out for fliers advertising the different organizations at the start of each semester.
