College Freshman

Greek Life: no greek life obviously, this is a military academy

College Student

Greek Life: There Is None – Being a military school, there is no party scene, no soroties, no frat houses, no greek life on campus. We live in dormitories with men and women on separate floors if at all possible and doors must always be open.

Greek Life: Ha! Greek life? Listen to some of these questions. What is next? You are kidding, right? I don't even think that some of these people know what alcohol and sex are. You must be kidding.

Greek Life: The Firstie Club is the closest thing that we have to a frat house. It is here where they allow us to `drink responsibly.' They allow us to drink, but they do everything they can to ensure that it never gets out of hand. They also have a right man night, where you come down to the Firstie Club and drink with your right hand man.

Greek Life: You can think of your whole experience as a series of entrances into various fraternities. For example, after recognition day, new cadets are accepted into the Corps of Cadets-in essence, they enter into a fraternity. When you are a cow, you have to decide if you are going to stay or leave West Point. And when you graduate, you enter into the Army, an even larger brotherhood.

Overall, most cadets have a social void. There are no fraternities or sororities on campus. The closest thing to either one of these is the Firstie Club, a club on post for upperclass cadets. The Firstie Club is actually more of a sports bar than anything else; it is definitely not a club in the conventional sense. While a lot of the cadets actually abstain from drinking, there are definitely those cadets that are very dissatisfied with the limited opportunities to go out and have fun. According to some of the cynical ones, only West Point knows how to make drinking not fun.

Bottom line—there is no Greek life at West Point. If that is your scene, don't go to the Academy because it is literally nonexistent. If you can settle for the feeling of brotherhood and the experience of being part of a larger entity without the Greek title and traditions, then you will do fine. But otherwise, stay away. Stay far, far away.
