The nice thing about the Greek system at Tufts is that they are always looking for new members, so almost all students get to sample what the system is like through open parties and other events. The pressure to join isn’t strong, and if you choose not to, you won’t be excluded. If you decide that Greek life is not your thing, don’t fear. It doesn’t dominate the social scene, and there are plenty of other options.
Recently, the administration has been cracking down on the Greek system in an attempt to add more unity, charity efforts, and safety to the system. Complaints about the administration trying to eliminate the Greek system are commonplace on campus. However, in the face of adversity, the community appears to be more unified than ever. But, without a doubt, there will be major changes in the Greek system in upcoming years, some for better, others for worse.
