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.
