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.
