There are certainly a lot of choices for going Greek at Salisbury University. However, their presence is not as palpable as reflected in the amount of organizations present on campus. The most palpable show of Greek pride occurs during the rush period at the beginning of the semester, when all frats and sororities are out in full force for at least two weeks. Outside of this period, it is only during certain periods of the semester, such as Homecoming, that the Greeks resurface.

In addition to a lacking presence, there are no formal frat or sorority houses. The organizations are headquartered in the Student Activities Center. However, the organizations do have de facto headquarters, primarily at member homes. It is at these homes that many parties are held and, in addition, the organizations hold formal socials a few times a year for their members and guests.
