3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at FGCU has its pros and cons. Most people either like the greeks or can barely stand them.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is pretty new, and a lot of those who are in Greek Life tend to have super-egos. However, there are some fraternities that have barely any of those stereotypical fratty people. Also, ALL fraternities and sororities do not allow hazing. Every fraternity and sorority takes this seriously, unlike most schools.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: They are involved in many organizations that assist our local communities.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Nothing too - there's no on-campus greek housing, and there's little reason to join one unless you crave further rigor in your schedule (with little-to-no benefit).

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not many fraternity and sorority on campus.

The campus is spread out, but it's not large, so there are no Greek houses. Unless you see students wearing Greek life T-shirts or at tables for the sororities and fraternities, there is not much information about them. Many students only see Greek students when they are at tables on campus doing charity work. Most students are either for or against Greek life. There is no happy medium when it comes to fraternities and sororities.

On the plus side, Greek life can be a great way to make friends, meet new people, and have great experiences; in addition, it can be good for networking. However, Greek life is not that affordable. It would be nice if they had less expensive sororities and fraternities. It seems as though all the sororities and fraternities do are social events.
