Greek Life: The school is small, so the Greek community is different than larger schools. We are a family and we all care about each other. We all have many friends within the Greek community as well as outside of the Greek community. The Greek community is growing which is exciting! Not all of the chapters have houses, but this doesn't seem to deter anyone from joining. I joined a sorority as a freshman and it was the BEST decision ever!
