College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life but all the sororities and fraternities do service activities and host runs and pancake breakfasts and stuff like that on campus. Greek life is big but I have a lot of friends who are Greek and a lot of friends who aren't Greek too.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I find the Greek Life on campus to be quite present, though it seems the majority of students participating in Greek Life are not solely dedicated to that one organization, but rather a host of other things (it is big, but it isn't an issue if you are not involved).

Greek Life: I think it is good if you want to join because you have people looking out for you. But if you do not want to join it is okay too because your going to have friends if you want them

The only word to describe Greek life at High Point is "big." Greek life is a major part of the social scene and contributes a lot to the campus community. Being in a sorority or fraternity gives students leadership, community awareness, and lifelong friends. Although a lot of non-Greeks only care about them for the parties they throw, Greek members do a lot for the campus in terms of spirit, philanthropy, and events. Greeks can be seen in their respective letters all around campus. They are proud of their affiliations and like to make it known to the rest of campus. Greek life is so big at High Point that the organizations have housing. The Greek Village is a collection of massive chapter houses (one for every Greek organization on campus and a few extras for future expansion), a private pool, and meeting house.

Even if you’re not interested in Greek life before you get to college, you should still get some information about it once you get there. It’s such a huge part of the social scene at HPU that sometimes it’s imperative that you be a member of one organization or another. While it’s perfectly acceptable to stay independent for your four years at High Point, Greek life is something that is a big part of campus life, and it definitely doesn’t hurt to check the organizations out!

Did You Know?
  • Rush week for National Panhellenic sororities begins the first week you get back from winter break. There are information sessions during the fall semester, but the rush process won't start until spring.
  • International Fraternity Council fraternities rush usually a week or two after the girls receive their bids. Fraternities also do a smaller fall rush for upperclassmen and sometimes sororities will hand out a snap bid at this time (a bid to a girl, or sometimes a few, that the sorority feels would fit well into the group).
