3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is kinda pointless. The only real value in it is if you have no friends and want to pay to get some and hang out with them on weekends. All the parties for these groups are extremely boring and only like 10-20 people attend them.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wish it were bigger and more known. I would love to have a house to live in rather than just having to meet in the campus center.

College Senior

Greek Life: I do not know much about this topic

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No Greek life has houses. They do quite a bit together on campus, but it's not that important.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I think it's silly to have to be part of a group to be able to at the least "pretend" to do something good for the world or your community. If it was really imperative to people in Greek to do something for their community there would not be such a bitter rivalry between them all.

Most of the Greek organizations at IUPUI emphasize scholarship, leadership, philanthropic service, and social development. Because there are no actual fraternity or sorority houses on campus, these Greek organizations tend to stay on task with service, development, and leadership. Partying with these groups is not something that students generally do. Instead, they get involved with them and do service projects like the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, or they attend events hosted by the organizations.

Greek life, in the traditional sense, is definitely lacking at IUPUI, but the focus on professionalism is very beneficial to the students that get involved in Greek organizations. For example, students can network with other students on a strictly professional basis in professional fields such as law and business. It is almost certain that they go out and interact socially with one another, having drinks or dinner, but house parties and traditional hazing is not an aspect of Greek life at IUPUI.
