Greek Life: The only thing I don't like about it is the cost. I am already struggling to go to school and then to be able to be a part of the Greek Life you need to have money. My family does not have alot of money so I found it impossible for me to afford school, work to help pay bills and then have to pay money to be a part of a fraternity so I had to drop out.

Greek Life: The Greek life doesn't do very much aside from parties, almost all of which are based on drinking alcohol and just getting drunk. They do a few good things around campus, such as fundraisers and such. If you aren't in one, it isn't really a big deal because they aren't that prominent on campus.

Greek Life: It Isn't Everything – Greek life is for some people and although most students are involved in Greek life there is no separation between those involved in Greek lie and those who do not.

Greek Life: Greek life is HUGE on campus. And it's really well-rated- we're one of the top schools in the country for Greek life.
Speaking as an indie (independent), Greek life is a pretty big part of campus BUT it's not the only part. It's totally possible to be very involved on-campus and never even think about rushing.
For the most part, Greeks and indies have a good relationship. Most don't care if you're Greek or not, and indies are welcome on the halls.

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at Transy. Each chapter has a designated hall in a dormitory, but members are not required to live there. Greeks are committed to academics, campus involvement, and philanthropy, not just partying.
