3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is average. Its great if that's what you're into.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I did not choose to do a sorority so far while at Florida State however, i have heard and learned such great things. I really enjoy being around the sorority and fraternity events and they do amazing things for the school and community.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not a huge fan of sororities and such so I have not gotten involved.

Greek Life: Greek life is stupid and a ripoff. You will be paying for your "friends" that are all backstabbers and fake.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge role at our school. You don't really have to join but it does help you create a set group of friends who will do anything for you if you join one. If your not greek you don't have that set group of friends your always with unless your situation is different.

Like any major university, FSU has an active and thriving Greek scene. Rush week is always a huge event, with an almost endless succession of parties and gatherings that allow potential members the opportunity to learn all there is about the fraternity or sorority they are most interested in. However, Greek organizations tend to have a partying reputation, but many students do not notice all of the volunteer work the Greeks perform-all of the time and effort that goes into these events. For example, the Greek community at FSU has raised and donated over $100,000 and 20,000 service hours to charitable organizations over the past academic year. Despite many of the preconceptions, Greek organizations at FSU set the standard for leadership and community service.

As far as the social scene is concerned, Greek life is not "the" dominant force on campus. Some students enjoy the camaraderie and lifelong friendships they develop through membership in a fraternity or sorority. Greeks throw parties, but so do other organizations. The Greeks do dominate student government and homecoming elections, but that is to be expected, and that is how it is at any major university. The majority of students at FSU do not belong to a fraternity or sorority, and many would agree that their social lives are just as active as any Greek's.
