4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are very great when it comes to speaking to non-greeks. Activity Hour is usually dedicated to them.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is very popular on campus but it doesn't run everything. You can easily pay attention or ignore it. The Greek plots are well decorated and show the importance of the organizations but they don't stress the need for you joining. If you wish to participate in Greek life it's totally up to you. No pressure.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: There are no greek housing unless the chapter buys a house off campus

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of the social scene on campus. If you're not into athletics, many people
choose to join a sorority or fraternity instead. As previously indicated, there are interest meetings
held often, as well as various events for different greeks.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty cool where we are from. The Greeks do community service but can also throw amazing parties so it depends. Greeks do not look at anyone differently and will not pressure you if you don't want to join.

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.
