College Freshman

Greek Life: theres 1 frat and 1 sorority

2 College Junior

Greek Life: There is not much Greek life on this campus. The Greek life that is on campus is only here for academic purposes, not the typically Greek life people expect in college. They do not host "cool" and "crazy" parties, but they do a lot of charity work.

College Junior

Greek Life: I am not sure what this is, but I think there is no special treatment or a Greek life in this school.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Literally 0% greek life here. There are sororities and frats but no one cares about them honestly. They don't do anything special, they dont get their own housing or are seen as a high part of the campus' social atmosphere.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The greek life at Suffolk is very new. However, it is growing rapidly and is becoming more noticeable; currently there is one Frat and one Sorority.

When it comes to Greek life, Suffolk isn't exactly all that big into it. If you ask a student on campus about Greek life options, he or she might say to you, "What Greek life?" Suffolk contains one fraternity and two sororities.

Sigma Gamma Rho is the only multicultural form of Greek life on campus, and it is mainly a black sorority. The University does not have many fraternities or sororities since there is not much room on campus for housing. There is also not much of an emphasis on sororities and fraternities on campus, and few students partake in it, as well.
