5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are the life of the campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I think the Greek life at school is okay. Some people change for the worse which causes a bad look on the sorority or fraternity. Although it is not usually the sorority and is the person them self, many non-Greeks do not look at it that way. But, usually people change for the better or don't change at all. I am unsure if there is Greek housing on campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life seems like a great thing to get into. Allows you to open your mind and opportunities vastly.

College Junior

Greek Life: basically if your not greek then you can't possibly win homecoming queen and king and miss and mr. norfolk state university. there are no greek housing on campus just regular housing. non-greek and greek still associate with one another but greeks consider to make the campus.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: If you look at the people and not the letters of the organization they are in then its a whole different story however, most people see the letters before they see the person. If people are interested and they pursue its based on the people you present yourself to. Non-Greeks generally look up to the Greeks but some could care less

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Greek life is fairly decent at Norfolk State. The Greeks on NSU's campus are not very noticeable. It's almost as if you have to know someone who is Greek to tell. Some may be wearing an item that would display that they are Greek, such as a bag or keychain. At times, they hold informational meetings or forums that hold discussions about current events or things that may help out a college student. Also, there are events, such as a step show, where you can get a better glimpse at Greek life. The probate, or public display of initiation into the organization, is a very big activity that takes place. The area where it's held gets packed very quickly; seating is impossible to find once the probate begins, as it is a very exciting function.

If you want to get involved with or are interested in joining a Greek organization, it is best to talk to people and get acquainted with those in the organization. The more people you know, the better. Also, be sure to be in good academic standing; this is usually a requirement of any of the organizations.
