The Greeks at NAU are housed in Mountain View, perched atop a hill overlooking the campus like Mount Olympus. These students are highly involved with both campus activities and charitable events. The chapters each put on numerous fundraising events throughout the semester, raising thousands of dollars for local Flagstaff charities. Intramurals are also popular with Greeks. They consistently finish on the top of the standings in almost every sport. Some IM sports will even have separate leagues for the Greeks to play each other instead of other students.
Greek students are some of the most involved on campus and are vital members of the student government (ASNAU) and many other on-campus organizations. On the other hand, many Greeks also possess a pompous, Zeus-like attitude that really rubs some the wrong way. Greek students tend to only associate with themselves, and obvious segregation exists. Even the physical location of Mountain View furthers the feelings of separation between Greeks and everyone else. Fraternity parties are popular, and most can be attended by non-Greeks; however, unless you are a woman, you probably won't be welcomed with open arms. Overall, Greek life is a great way to feel like part of a community, but most non-Greeks would rather see them stick mythological lightning bolts you-know-where.
