3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is prevalent but not essential to a student's happiness at Tulane. It is a southern school, so the chapters have many values rooted in old, southern traditions. However, there is a variety of chapters, enough so that each student can find his or her fit.

Greek Life: greek life is pretty big at tulane and you definitely notice their presence at certain times during the year, like the first few weeks, however if you are not greek and still a sociable person you get to enjoy many of the parties that occur on campus. it can be mainly about who you know

Greek Life: Greek life can be good and bad. There are some frats and sorors that are utterly awful, and there are some that are doing okay. Tulane has had most of greek life suspended numerous times for being too crazy.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you want to go greek, Tulane is a great place, and many students who do not plan on rushing before spring semester end up doing it.

College Senior

Greek Life: I do not know much about the greeklife at Tulane University

If you go Greek, it will likely be a dominant part of your college life, but if you decide that it isn’t your thing, the Greek scene won’t affect you at all. There is the option of going to frat and sorority parties during the fall semester, and the opportunity to rush and pledge in the spring semester. Other than being bombarded with people wearing Greek T-shirts, flip-flops, pins, etc., there is not much Greek on the Tulane campus.

People who are in fraternities and sororities are very loyal to their organization and make it a priority right up there with school work. You rarely ever hear of someone hating the Greek system, and few leave fraternities/sororities once they’ve joined. Greek life is a great way to make new friends, boyfriends and girlfriends, and connections for the future. Greek students tend to be fiercely loyal to their organizations and to their pledge groups, and many of these loyalties extend beyond the college years.

At Tulane, you won’t feel pressured to join one of these organizations, and your social life isn’t going to suffer if you choose to avoid pledging. Being in a sport or a club can provide almost the same network as any sorority or fraternity and can be just as fun.
