2 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have a typical Greek system, but something that resembles the idea. It's kind of pathetic, actually, but it's the only social feature at Geneseo that continues to uphold a reliable source of nightlife.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks hold closed parties but geneseo sororities and frats are notorious for terrible hazing

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As a student in Greek life, I can say almost no other school does Greek life in Geneseo. Most students who enjoy nightlife on the weekends are either athletes or in an organization. However, Greek life in Geneseo is very low-key, and is a tight-knit community where many people have friends in other organizations, be them Greek or non-Greek. The college also stresses the importance of philanthropy in Greek organizations at Geneseo, which encourages sororities and fraternities to not only make the campus a more fun place, but to make it a better place overall.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of greek life, but coming from someone who is involved in an organization (intercollegiate varsity athletics), greek life can be seen as your ticket to a great social life here at Geneseo.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: all people in sororities I've met so far are super sweet. sure the parties aren't open but they're friendly and willing to invite non greeks if you get to know them better. and the guys are super hot lol.
