The Greek life at TSU is one extreme or the other. If you live on campus, the idea of joining a frat or sorority is appealing and very popular. If you live off campus, you won't hear much about it because the members pretty much keep to themselves. There is so much to do in Nashville that the organizations do not play much of a role in the social scene. The decision to join a frat or sorority should be one that is left up to the individual. To some, it is one of the biggest decisions to make in college; to others at TSU, it is not even a second thought.
A student at TSU does not have to worry about joining to fit in. There are plenty of other opportunities to become popular, and there are many other organizations to join which may prove to be better for the individual. The frats and sororities around campus do have an anti-hazing policy, which ensures a student's safety should they choose to join. It is so easy to find out about parties around campus that being a member is certainly not necessary. There are many members around campus, but they do not make students feel like outcasts for not joining. Greeks are spread throughout the student body, and you really do not hear much about it unless they come right out and talk about an upcoming event or project. The girls at TSU seem to be more interested in Greek life than the boys, which could have a lot to do with the ratio of girls to guys. The overall interaction between Greeks and non-Greeks is a good one; there is always information floating around campus for those who are interested; for those who are not, you do not notice it.
