3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Unfortunately, this school does not have every Fraternity and Sorority. Therefore if you wanted to join a specific fraternity or sorority that this school did not have, you would have to pick another one or try to create that specific chapter on the campus, which is a lot of work. With all that said, the Greek life on campus is very fun and vibrant. If you are not apart of Greek life you will not be treated negatively in any way. I am not aware that this campus Greek housing on campus or off campus. The most exciting thing about Greek life for Greek students and non- Greeks is the Greek games, which is very fun to participate in and watch.

College Freshman

Greek Life: It doesn't really affect life on campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are some fraternities on campus that are known for their parties, but every campus has frats like that. The sororities are more concerned with making a difference in the community and raising money for their philanthropies.

Greek Life: People who are involved in greek life like it and there are some who are involved in it that don't even care for it or the people. The dues are expensive. If you're not a greek you don't really take them seriously. People use the greeks for the parties they throw, which in my opinion aren't that good anyway. They're very strict and have rules that non-greeks think are pointless like not wearing letters if they're drinking in a picture. Very cliquey and annoying if they're all with each other. I don't see fraternity guys that date girls unless they're in a sorority. Greeks sponsor some events on campus that I've liked. When the housing process comes around, some members get together and pick an apartment or a suite to live in or get a house off campus, but there is no special housing.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally, I am non-Greek but friends with Greeks, but I know a lot of non-Greeks who are fairly against the Greek system and the members.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

RMU's Greek life is definitely not as big as at other schools, but it is still a part of the RMU landscape. Though some students at RMU may be indifferent or even negative toward Greek life, that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist or thrive. Some say that RMU isn't the right type of school for Greek life, but if you were to ask any student who is a part of RMU Greek life, they will tell you that it is a great experience for students, especially with the benefits of doing so much for both the school and the community.

RMU's Greek life is pretty active, with events, activities, and organizations throughout the school year. Greek life members can live in the Greek suites for each fraternity and sorority. Simply enough, Greek life at RMU has come a long way, and it is definitely a tight-knit group.
