1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life at MSU is horrendous. There are constantly reports of rape, drug abuse, etc. that come from the greek parties.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The houses are dirty, I only know one cool kid that is Greek

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in the greek life, but how I see it the only things they do are throw parties. I never see them doing any good for the community.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There are several fraternities and sororities on campus. They seem to keep to themselves. Greek life is not celebrated by the majority of students.

3 College Student

Greek Life: I really haven't noticed a lot of Greek/Non-Greek issues at all

The Greek scene at MSU is less than prominent, with only seven fraternities and four sororities. Most students view the Greek life as an extension of high school cliques and avoid it at all costs. Those who do venture into it, however, find a great group of people for parties and consuming massive amounts of alcohol. Years back, the frats and sororities only raised $9,000 between them, leading the casual observer to come to the conclusion that their main goal is actually not benefiting the community, but (gasp!) throwing loud parties that the cops often have to break up.

Despite the downfalls (or, if you prefer the keg to helping UNICEF, the benefits) of joining a Greek organization, the experience does give members some vital networking skills. They also organize some entertainment events, such as recruiting comedians to come to MSU. So, while fraternity brothers and sorority sisters do not always do much to help the community, they do set themselves up for success—something to keep in mind during fall rush.
