3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is a clear difference between the NPHC fraternities and sororities and NPC sororities/fraternities on campus. When inquiring about "other" sororities, many of the NPC sororities know nothing of the existence of NPHC sororities.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is probably one of the greatest forces on any campus. From the individual to the group level, Greek Life does so much to break people out of their shell and connect them to others. Greek Life as a whole is definitely a family and the Greek Life family is just as friendly with the rest of the campus as they are with each other.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't really my thing but it is Huge on campus. Greek Life plays a huge role in the social aspects of campus, the community aspects and even academics.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Everyone treats everyone the same. The only difference is that some have letters. When the NPHC fraternities and soroities mix with Caucasian fraternities and soroities, they learn a lot from each other and they do not try to separate themselves! Frostburg is a very mixed school when it comes to fraternities and soroities. There are some Non-Greeks that view Greeks snobby or stuck up or "change" when they join. Others don't think much of it.

Frostburg State has both recognized and unrecognized sororities, fraternities, and coed Greek life. As per the recognized Greek groups, if the organization is recognized by the administration, then that group may post fliers, hold bake sales, and raise money for themselves. However, if the organization is not recognized, then the group may not post fliers, hold bake sales, or raise money. This is the campus’s policy on Greek life. There are more unrecognized fraternities than there are sororities. Most of the Greek life housing is on Wood Street, which is right off of campus. Wood Street is the equivalent of "Greek Row." There are some members that do not actually live in the fraternity or sorority houses, and that is fine. There are a lot of members who just find their own house and come to the fraternity/sorority house for chapter meetings. Whether living in or out of the houses, there are many students who take part in Greek life.

The Greek community is well respected on campus. Many people wish to join the Greek life because the current members make it seem so much fun. There is a lot of work involved in joining one of these groups, but if you are looking for something to make your college years extra special, then Greek life is the way to go.
