1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge deal- basically everyone does it.

College Senior

Greek Life: I have my own views on the greek system. I am greek affiliated and believe it has shaped me into the person I am today, introducing me to wonderful people as well as giving me opportunities to grow as an individual.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is stereotypical just like those in the movies.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a part of greek life, but it's very prominent on campus. It really doesn't matter if you're involved in Greek life or not. It gives you an immediate family if you are, but if not, you can easily be friends with those involved. Greek life throws a lot of parties and is very involved in community and Miami events. They also host a lot of fundraisers which can be entertaining and fun to participate in.

Greek Life: Greek life is big at Miami but there are other options although if you'd like to party I would suggest joining a Greek organization of some sort.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Greek life is huge at Miami University. A couple of mishaps with formals recently resulted in the termination of multiple Greek houses, but Greek life still dominates campus. Of course, there are some unaffiliated students (who are not on varsity teams) who still enjoy their time here very much without joining a Greek organization. However, rushing a house makes a big difference. It can make the University seem much smaller and gives you more social opportunities.

If you do decide to rush, it is guaranteed you will be able to find a house you fit in with—there are more than 30 fraternities and 20 sororities at the school, each of which has different personalities and values.
