Greek life on campus isn't that big of a deal. It is definitely a way to get involved, meet people, and have a good time, but it doesn't determine your popularity. There are only three fraternities and five sororities on campus, and University Heights does not allow them to have Greek houses, so they occupy specific floors in the dorms.
Greek life gets students involved in a lot of fun, with activities where you can mingle and become really close with your brothers and/or sisters. There is "Greek Week" on campus, and all of Greek life stays involved in volunteer projects and other organizations on campus throughout the year. Overall, it is not difficult to get involved in Greek life at John Carroll; it really just depends on what type of experience you are looking for. For some people, the downside to Greek life is the cost of being a member. Some students view this as "paying for friends," while members of the Greek community view it differently. The main thing to remember is not to join a fraternity or sorority because your friends are—choose what you want to do.
