3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not big into the Greek life, but have several friends in it and enjoy it. It doesn't affect the campus too much; however, there are always girls or guys bragging about how big their party was this weekend.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Absolutely love greek life, take the best candidates in and leave the worst out to be completely honest all are going somewhere

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life is great I have a lot of zeta friends and they are all so nice and welcoming

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Only about 14% of the school is in greek life. They throws lots of parties and they're always a blast. Not much to do otherwise. My friends see greeks pretty much as snobby or obnoxious. The greeks do not live in separate housing and I don't know much about it.

Lubbock is a small town, and therefore Greek life is a huge part of the Texas Tech social scene. Especially for freshmen who can't go to bars, fraternity parties are the place to be on the weekends. There is at least one fraternity party going on every day of the weekend during the fall semester, and these parties range anywhere from being a refined dance party with a band to a foam party with a DJ and random costumes galore. Fraternity parties are random in venue and theme, but they usually have one thing in common: drinking. It is not uncommon to see people making out in the foam or throwing up in it. Girls are always welcome, but only guys in that particular fraternity are usually allowed in.

Sorority functions are the opposite of fraternity functions because they are all date parties. Dates must be signed up, and most sororities make it mandatory to take a provided shuttle to and from the party. Drinking is not allowed for anyone under 21 because there is a third-party vendor who checks IDs, and the overall party feels like a high school dance. Unlike the Greek life at other schools, no one lives at the lodge provided by their respective fraternity or sorority. This plays a huge part in the dwindling of involvement of students in Greek life after their sophomore year.
