4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is just a lot of work to join and that derives us away from fully concentrating on our studies

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Seeing as how I'm not a Greek life individual, I can't say too much about it.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our greek life on campus is great! Different organizations hold events for sjsu students to attend so students are able to interact with one another. There is no difference in treatment when it comes to students who aren't in a greek organization.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The sororities only approach those that they think are pretty or fit their ethnic group. But overall they don't really make a big deal about who they are or what sorority they are in. The frats seem like the stereotypical frats. The guys wear the same clothes and you'll hear them bragging about how ratched one girl was the night before or how much alcohol they can take. But they don't really bother you.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally don't see a point in Greek life, since all I hear about is how they party. I know there's a small handful who actually do community service events, but besides that, I don't see anything else. And I know there are some Greeks who live in the houses, but there are also some who live in the dorms.
