3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Don't have to do it, but if you do it can be a fun way to meet new people.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally am not in sorority for the sole reason that it didn't interest me and it's not a big deal here at Marist. The people who are involved in greek life don't judge based on their involvement; they did it because they wanted to. I think their raising of funds for charities is great, and the parties are too, but their role does not affect campus life.

Greek Life: Greek life is not what defines your social life at Marist College at all. Unlike so many other schools, it is completely unnecessary to join a fraternity or sorority (although they do exist) in order to meet friends and partake in social events. Only a small percentage of the student population is Greek.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: One hardly notices greek life. There's an occasional frat party but other than that greek life is barely there
