3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There if you want it, easy to ignore if you don't.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at my school is average. Sense McKendree is a small school there is no housing at all for Greeks and no one will treat you indifferent if you join or not.

College Freshman

Greek Life: no Greek life for me. I have heard that they are very fun and like to help out society and volunteer. They do not have their own housing

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greeks aren't party animals. Instead, they are focused on bettering the University.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are greek groups on campus, none which house their members, and they have very little influence academically or socially.

The Greek life organizations at McKendree are very active in both their duties, plans, ambitions, and throughout the local community in service and philanthropy projects. All Greek organizations do a great job of serving the University proudly, and look forward to expanding and making further improvements for McKendree Greek life in the future.

There are no opportunities for Greek housing yet. The Greek community is viewed in a positive manner; non-Greeks can usually see how hard each student from a Greek organization works throughout the year. All in all, both Greeks and non-Greeks coexist well together, doing their absolute best to make a difference on campus and in the world.
