5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Awesome greek life (: I'm in a sorority and I love it!

College Sophomore

Greek Life: It really depends on the fraternity or sorority and how it is received by Non-Greek students. Overall, the Greek life is seen as something positive and at worst Non-Greeks are indifferent to Greeks. However, this varies among the various types of Greek.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They have many strict rules, making sure the members are not "Hazed"

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a great way to make lots of friends if that's what you want.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm non-Greek, but I know a lot of people who are. My roommate rushed this year and she is very happy with her decision. All of the girls are very nice and care about the Freshman class. All greek members must live in the house one of the years here at Millikin, but it doesn't have to be your Sophomore year. Although a lot of Freshman try to live in the houses because it is the cheapest housing option here on campus for an upper classman.

Greek life is pretty strong and involved in campus life. It is hard to walk around campus and not bump into someone involved in Greek life. The Greeks care deeply, often doing service or caring for their brother/sister chapters at another school. When the Delta Sigma Phi house burned down at Illinois State University, the Delta Sigs from Millikin had a 24-hour "podium stand" to help raise money. Greek Week also occurs on campus, and that's when you'll really see them participating. Members of the fraternities and sororities are usually nice, and they are not snobby. Typically, people believe that people within Greek life are stuck-up or not intelligent, but those are the stereotypes. It is all a matter of knowing the person and not simply the fraternity or sorority.

For housing, most Greeks have a house. By Weck and the New Halls, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Tau Kappa Epsilon have their houses. Pi Beta Phi and a few of the other Greek houses are across the street from Leighty-Tabor Science Center, and Tri-Delta is a little farther from campus. A few organizations, such as Sigma Lambda Gamma, do not have houses, so members are allowed to remain within the dorms or wherever they take residence.
