3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is around, but they don't have their own housing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: From my point of view I believe the greek life is not something worth being part of.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is my school is more of so established around the belief of Community service and brotherhood/sisterhood.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: they have a lot of events for the students but it's not a huge thing at the school but it's most certainly present

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am a member of Greek life. I am a sister of Sigma Sigma Sigma. I think Greek life at FSU does a great job of breaking the stereotypes of Greeks and influencing our campus and community for the better. As with anything, their are people who are indifferent, who dislike, and who like Greek life. There is currently no Greek housing available but you are welcome to room with sisters or brothers in the available housing.

The presence of Greek life is all over campus. Many of the members wear their letters on apparel and school supplies all over campus. The sororities and fraternities organize campus-wide events as well as a full week at the end of the school year called "Greek Week," when the members of these organizations compete in field day-type activities like tug-of-war, balloon toss, etc.

Greek life is overseen by two boards: the Panhellenic and Greek councils. Greek Council represents all five organization, while Panhellenic is just for the sororities. The Panhellenic officers are two members of each sorority. There is a formal two-week recruitment session during fall semester when students can get aquainted with all of the organizations at the same time. There is also a shorter, more casual recruitment session for each individual organization during the spring semester. Students who are accepted into an organization will go through their personal rushing process.
