College Freshman

Greek Life: If you haven't noticed it by now, I really do not care for the drinking and partying aspect of college so I don't know anything about the Greek Life. I'm sure you can do all kinds of "fun" and illegal things though if you join.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I would never join. They are the typical "lets join a frat so I can wear polos, drink and get girls" attitude that I find idiotic. I went to a house once and would never go back, overcrowd decaying house with hostility towards other guys. But if you are looking to join a frat, ya there are a bunch.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most people know the frats for throwing parties, but they are also known to be actively involved in the community. There are cool frats, nerdy frats, jerk frats. Most sorority girls are pretty stuck up, save a few.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm involved in Greek life at Rowan and it's definitely visible. Last semester, I would always see organizations around campus either running events or just hanging out together. After joining one, I was able to see how much Greek life does to involve community service and philanthropic events into Rowan. Some non-Greeks do have a negative view on sororities and fraternities and believe all we do is party. However, for the most part, nobody looks down on each other and non-Greeks and Greeks are able to get along perfectly.

Greek Life: Greek life at Rowan isn't that big of a deal. No one is looked down upon if they do or do not join a frat or sorority.

Greek life on campus is more or less average. Members are very welcoming to prospective Greeks and even people who have no interest in joining. Greeks realize that their lifestyle is not for everyone, but they don’t make students feel like something is wrong with them if it isn’t their style. With nationally accredited fraternities and sororities, the tradition of Greek pride and respect is prominently upheld at Rowan. While many fraternities and sororities are chartered by the University, many are not recognized, but that doesn't stop them from throwing parties and social events. For students who are considering joining a sorority or fraternity, the good news is that there is something for everyone. Rowan Greek life is like a buffet—there is almost every frat and sorority known to man here, including a large number of honor societies and music groups.

Greek life on campus is best known for being enthusiastic about its events and programs. Fortunately, hazing has stopped. Students will still need to pledge to get in, but hazing is strictly prohibited on Rowan’s campus, as it is at most colleges. Fraternities and sororities will lose their charter if allegations of hazing turn out to be true. Overall, Greeks, as well as non-Greeks, enjoy a peaceful coexistence on Rowan’s campus.
