Greek Life: im not part of the greek life

College Junior

Greek Life: I have no interest in Greek life

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek Life. I'm not well informed and have never sought after rushing for a sorority.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not know much about the Greek life. It seems that being a part of Greek like is not necessary but a fun activity to meet friends, be apart of something and parties. The parties may be exclusive something which can cause a problem.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big at the school. Greek students often look down upon non-Greeks and vice versa. Greek students don't get special houses but usually do have a house that they will rent to their fraternity or sorority. However, oftentimes you don't have to be in that fraternity or sorority to live in the house. They are just ordinary houses that just happen to have greek life students in them.

TCNJ has an active Greek life consisting of 13 sororities, 10 fraternities, and one coed organization. Groups include social fraternities and sororities as well as those pertinent to major. Group activities are year-long, consisting of fundraising, social events, concerts, charity drives, philanthropy and volunteering, game shows, dances, formal events, and collaborative events.

Though there is no particular on-campus housing for Greek life, most organizations have houses off campus in nearby Ewing, Hamilton, and Lawrenceville, and are often cheaper than on-campus housing. Greek life offers something for everyone, and the large number of organizations ensures that interested students will find an organization that they specifically enjoy. Views of Greek life depend on whom you ask; members will report positive experiences, while nonmembers' views may vary. The best way to experience Greek life is to attend rush events and social events hosted by Greek organizations.
