Greek Life: DON't EXIST – The only thing like Greek Life are some of the sports teams (and this really depends on the people on the team).

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Plain and simple, Greek life does not exist at Sarah Lawrence. There are no sororities and no fraternities. No residential area even gets close to holding frat-like qualities, and although group houses in Slonim Woods or Andrews Court are often social hubs on the weekends, most parties are still defined by tight-knit social groups.  

Sprawling, open-to-all parties almost never happen at SLC, and parties that threaten to get that large are dispersed by campus security more often than not. Those who seek to enjoy Greek-style parties on the weekends generally go to NYU or Columbia, or other larger universities in the city.
