3 College Student

Greek Life: I don't care much about Greek life, but they throw a good party every once in a while. But stay away from the Pikes.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have not experienced Greek life at Ferris

3 College Student

Greek Life: It is really strange to me that in Big Rapids, there cannot be sorority houses. Compared to other schools in Michigan, our Greek life is not as developed.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: greek life runs a lot of the activities that are not only fun but educational as well.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life at all; must not be very big here.

Greek life is fairly average in scope. Students do not have to join an organization to have fun, and there is little to no effect on the social scene. Most non-Greeks are indifferent to the Greeks and do not see them any differently than themselves. Greek organizations are semi-active on campus. They take part in fundraisers, bring different events to campus, and do a lot of work in the community. Around campus, many of the students involved can be seen representing their organization by wearing their sorority or fraternity letters.

There is not that much housing that is available for the members in the Greek organizations. They live in pretty average housing like other non-Greek members off campus, and there is no special housing for them. The process of getting into a Greek organization is seen as pretty easy. Each organization has different requirements and a different process for a student to be asked to join, though.
