4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life, all the sorority girls talk the same and I can't take it

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is prevalent and generally pretty great. There are plenty of social opportunities whether or not you're Greek, but one thing to note is that the frat-parties are pretty exclusive to actual members after the first month or so into the fall semester when they're done recruiting potential members. There is sometimes a mild sense of rivalry between the different Greek organizations, but mostly everyone gets along.

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at my school, but it doesnt change much if you arent in it.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Lots of fun, could be better with semi-formals and formals, but there usually are many events and parties, greeks are open to liking fellow greeks and there is healthy competition.

Greek life is a big part of Florida Southern and is represented in many of the school clubs and organizations. Unlike typical stereotypes, the Greek organizations do not have clique reputations, such as the preppy sorority or the jock fraternity. They do have parties, but these parties are not the main attraction on campus. Greeks are very competitive with each other in events, but not to the point where there is obvious animosity between organizations. Sorority and fraternity members often live in Publix Commons, and although it can be nice to live together, it is not the same as the big houses that are available at some other colleges.

You can definitely have a good time on campus without being in a fraternity or sorority. If you are not part of a Greek organization, there is no pressure to join one because the campus is diverse enough to allow everyone to find their own niche. Be aware that when you do join Greek life, you are making a huge time commitment and spending a lot of money on dues and other various Greek merchandise.
