3 College Junior

Greek Life: Not much is done by the Greek, to be honest in the architecture field, they are rarely seen so I would not know to much about the Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: NJIT recently built the Greek Village, a very modern and nice collection of Greek Housing. Much nicer than the dorms and a lot more space and privacy.

College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life is thriving here at NJIT, however I am not apart of it. Just a personal decision.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life has little influence on the student population. My only experience with the Greek life is when I see someone wearing a greek shirt.

The Greek organizations are usually very active on campus and are viewed as positive influences. With the exception of one or two unfavorable organizations, they all remain very active within the community through service activities and leadership positions. Many fraternity and sorority members serve as RAs, the heads of clubs, or tutors at the school.

Housing is available for a small number of the Greek members, and non-Greeks are often welcome to hang out with the organization members. The fraternities and sororities sometimes hold study sessions and mixers to help NJIT students—especially new students—fit in and do well at the school.
