3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I hate that Towson does not have Greek housing it would make our school 100 times better. There should be since there are soo many Greeks on the campus

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life seems like an easy way to meet friends and always have a party to go to.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I've heard about some cases of hazing but I am personally not in one so I have no horror stories to share. HOWEVER, when you go to events you cannot help but be excited when Greek Life is there because everyone is so excited.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not personally in a sorority but the friends I have that are in one absolutely love it. They take such pride in their Greek life and the companionship they get from their sorority is very important.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I do see a lot of students that belong to some Greek organization however, I do not know anything about Greek life.

Whether it is some fraternity’s toga party or a sorority’s semi-formal, joining Greek life at Towson can be a lot of fun. The students who are involved in Greek life claim that it has a highly visible role on campus, and many students involved say they cannot imagine having a good college experience at TU without joining a sorority or a fraternity.

But, joining a sorority or fraternity at Towson can be awfully time consuming, since meetings and events are held almost every week, or at least every other. As a result, many who are involved in Greek life may say that it plays a big role on campus because they are constantly around it. As a student in Towson, you are bound to come across Greeks wearing their letters just about every day, but a good majority of students choose not to join and are content with their decisions. Furthermore, those who are not involved in Greek life do not think it dominates the social scene at all.
