3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life. The Greeks I have met are friendly. Some of my close friends decided to become part of Greek life. I'm not sure of the condition of the chapter houses.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Professors and everyone gears things towards greek life, if you aren't in a frat or sorority here you are considered weird. It's hard to fit in being non-greek

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on campus. The only downside to Greek life is that people who are involved with it don't really associate them with people who aren't in it when they go out. People who are involved in Greek life tend to stick around people who are also involved. Non-Greeks usually see Greeks as stuck up or close minded. It really just depends on the view of the person though. The Greek housing available are the chapter houses in Greek court.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: EIU has so many sororities and fraternities! All of which have range of things that they are involved in for the community, so it isn't just a benefit for the student to get career internships, but they also help the community as a whole. I'm not a part of one myself, but I know that they are good to consider.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is huge. There are just so many different types to choose from and so diverse.
