Greek life at SFSU should not be labeled as nonexistent, but maybe nonenthusiastic would sum it up better. Sure, the limited number of frats and sororities flood the campus during Welcome Week, just like any other university, but it’s all sorts of different. At San Francisco State, there are no "houses" for these groups—just hazing and other fun social events, without the glitz and glitter. Joining Greek life at SFSU may be rewarding in building friendships and being philanthropic, but students shouldn't expect it to make them the new king or queen of the campus.
The benefits really do outweigh the cons, however; so it is recommended that incoming students check out the Greek organizations to see if one might be a good fit for them. Who can think of a better start other than one that includes many résumé-worthy events, plus all of the "cool kids" in school?
