1 College Senior

Greek Life: worst part of JCU. They suck. Throw terrible parties and do not even have houses. They think they are bro but not at all. Girls are hot though.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is fun and they do a lot volunteer work within the community.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I was never involved in greek life. JCU is a Jesuit school, so there is a very heavy social service component to all greek life. They're good people, they party, and it is very evident who is in greek life and who is not, but most of the student body doesn't participate.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is very open to outside activities and outside members. They are very involved on campus and there is no hazing. Lots of fun activities planned.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life at JCU is very level headed and not too wild.

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.
