3 College Junior

Greek Life: My university doesn't provide Greek housing. If the Greeks do have a house, it is a house that they have purchased off-campus. Greek life at my university is average. The Greeks attract a lot of attention, mostly because of the parties and events, not because of traditional beliefs. The Greeks affect social atmosphere by advertising their Greek weeks, advertising their parties for the weekend and advertising special events during the school year.

Greek Life: Was better my freshmen yr. I am greek.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks at my school are more of a clique than anything else. They hold events that help the community, but more often than not, it's for their own benefit.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Want to pledge so bad

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I cannot comment much on the Greek life because I do not partake in it therefore I do not know much about what they do and their whereabouts.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council consists of the "Divine Nive" Greek organizations, or historically African American Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities. They include Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Iota Phi Theta, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Zeta Phi Beta.

Greek houses are not available, but located on Alexis Circle are Greek plots for each sorority or fraternity. Out of respect, students should not walk or sit on the Greek plots, unless they are affiliated with the fraternity or sorority. However, the "Unity Plot" is open to everyone. Overall, each group represents themselves well at Savannah State University.
