4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge. You don't necessarily have to join a fraternity or sorority to be successful and involved on campus but it helps a great deal. If you aren't greek there's nothing really on campus to keep independents involved or entertained.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I believe the Greek life at Troy is wonderful. I am a Phi Mu and I believe I can speak for all sorority girls when I say that we all work very hard to represent our school well. We work together a lot when it comes to raising money for our philanthropies and other fundraisers. We have a great social life and have made many friends and future networking opportunites through greek life. Our grades are higher as a whole then most non greeks. We have sorority and fraternity houses for some people to live in. They are in good condition.

College Junior

Greek Life: I am an online student.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm GDI, Greek life wasn't for me, but I have a lot of Lambda Chi and Alpha Gam, Chi O, and Phi Mu friends.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I love being in a sorority!

The Greek organizations at Troy University are very active on campus. Greek Week is an annual event in spring dedicated to the fraternities and sororities on campus—they work on a community service project, conduct a forum, and host several activities ranging from cookouts to block parties.

In order to become a member of any sorority or fraternity, there are a few requirements. First, you must have a minimum 2.5 GPA, and some require a fee. Most Greek organizations also require participation in other on-campus service organizations, and some even require a study hall during the week to ensure its members are successful in the classroom. Overall, Greek life at Troy is a great way to get involved on campus. You also can meet people from different schools and chapters, which can help later with job networking or references. But, although it has many benefits, Greek life is not for everyone. The fees can get to be very expensive, and the requirements of the organization along with being a full-time student can be too much for many to handle.
