Greek Life: It's very present and somewhat snobby. However, there are so many that you can't typify them all into one category.

5 College Sophomore

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Once again, I'm not a part of greek life, but my neighbors were, so I'm going based off of their accounts.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: About two-thirds of our campus is greek, and it is honestly the best experience I have had so far in college. The houses are all very accepting of the other chapters, and we all compete to support philanthropy events. Non-Greek students see Greek students as involved students and both groups get along well. I think Greek life at our school is much different than at other schools, in that everyone gets along between the houses and there is very little competition. Only juniors and seniors can live in the house because they are pretty small, but overall being Greek is an excellent experience.
