3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are welcoming and cheerful people that encourage involvement on campus activities

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is average. A lot of students chose to join Greek Life but, you don't have to if it's not in the cards for you.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: If you are a non-Greek you most likely can't stand Greeks because they are obnoxious and idiotic.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not have experience with Greek life

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: For me joining greek life was the best decision I could've made. The sororities and fraternities at SHU are full of friendly and fun people who do tons of community service, have great sister/brotherhoods and throw great parties. If you want to go to the best parties at SHU definitely join greek life. There are 5 sororities and 5 fraternities that you can join each with their own different personalities. There is no official greek housing, although each sorority/fraternity has several of their own houses and apartments that members live in together that get based down through the years. There are countless reasons to join greek life; friendships, community service, parties, formals/semiformals, help with studying... Its something I would recommend for everyone!

Seton Hall consists of two types of people: those involved in Greek life and those involved in making fun of those who went Greek. While Greek life is a major part of college life, the Greek life on Seton Hall is laughable compared to most. Although it is present at different events, there are not many notable fraternities or sororities that truly encompass the idea of a great Greek organization. Even if the fraternities are somewhat laughable, they do know how to throw a party. As a freshman, you either are being rushed into joining the fraternity or you are trying to attend as many parties as possible before they keep you from entering. If your idea of a good time is having a close-knit group of friends, get into one of these organizations as soon as possible.

Still, there is a large portion of the campus that views Greek life at Seton Hall as the easiest way to buy friends. Students could be better served by going to one of the many sports houses around the town—everyone is invited and pledging isn’t involved before you can have a good time. Ultimately, joining a Greek organization comes down to what type of party you want to be involved in, not whether you will fit in on campus. The parties thrown by Greeks are unrivaled, but the amount of work it takes to be a part of one or two of these parties each year could be much better spent on the outside.
