3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a huge deal at NC State. It is much easier to find parties through Greek life though. However, it is more of a social activity than anything else.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I never ended up doing Greek Life but I know people who did it and enjoyed it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't as present on the campus as on many other universities in the South, but it definitely exists. The fraternity parties are great, and most girls can easily get in without being Greek. The houses are mostly on Greek Court, and are a little run down, but several have rebuilt huge, beautiful houses recently. Greeks are noticed on campus, but no one is treated differently based on Greek or non-Greek status.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not a part of Greek life but I have considered joining a sorority. I have a lot of friends in fraternities and they throw great parties. They're all nice guys, not really like frat guys are portrayed on TV. They're a little bothered by "geeds" (non-Greeks) but if you're a girl it doesn't matter. I think Greeks do lots of good for the community and I admire their brotherhood/sisterhood

Making friendships that last a lifetime, creating a network through your peers, and getting involved in the community is what Greek life promotes to draw new members into a brotherhood/sisterhood. Greek life holds events like Greek Week and recruits new members at the beginning of each semester, but it is not as prevalent on this campus as it is at many other schools.

Due to recent hazing suspensions, house vacancies, and house renovations, the Greek life office's budget has been suffering. Each vacant fraternity or sorority house is a loss of approximately $110,000, especially since Greek Court is all revenue-supported. Sigma Nu, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Kappa Alpha Order, and Sigma Phi Epsilon have either been temporarily suspended or have lost University recognition. Greek life membership has significantly decreased over the past several years, and fraternities are at their lowest membership numbers in recent history.

Did You Know?
Greek life is required to do a number of philanthropy events and give back to the community. Every year, Sigma Chi holds a function called Derby Days in which they join forces with sororities to help raise money, and toward the end of the year, Greeks participate in another money-raising event called Greek Week.
