College Freshman

Greek Life: Haven't inquired about any of the fraternities.

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.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There's always some event sponsored by greek life. They recently opened the Warren Street Village which is a row of brand new Greek houses. They throw parties all the time and no one cares about alcohol or drugs there. You're viewed the same as if you weren't in a Greek house but you will have so much more friends if you do. Rush week is pretty short so if you don't make an impression then you're not going to get a bid. Most rush weeks often end up in a night full of drinking and partying.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I would say it is OK as I didn't get in touch with most of them.

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.
