There are many Greek organizations at SHSU that range from multicultural to academic bases. At Sam, it is common to see student groups, including Greek organizations, spreading their word to those who will listen. The most popular venue for recruiting new members and being active is in front of the Lowman Student Center, where student organizations camp out throughout the day to interact with students. There are several fraternity houses, and for sororities, there are campus houses for sorority members and pledges.
In general, the students don’t know much about the services the Greeks offer unless they are members of these organizations themselves. The perception of the Greek community by the rest of the student body is that they are good for throwing parties and hosting social events, but nothing else. Most students are unaware of the things the Greek organizations do for the community and those in need of assistance, which may be because of a lack of effective representation. Overall, the general view of Greek life at SHSU is fairly positive, but any negative opinions can likely be attributed to the lack of knowledge by the rest of the student body.
