Greek Life: Greek Life provides for a lot of fun social experiences at Mizzou. Girls don't have to join to enjoy the benefits but guys should strongly consider it.

Greek Life: I do not know enough other students who have shared their experience in Greek life on campus to provide a fair and informed rating

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally can't stand it. It's not worth the money or the tears. And the parties are terrible. Never go to a frat house alone.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek town and fraternity parties are exactly what you would picture. However, there are a lot of students that you wouldn't expect to be greek and are because it's pretty open and accepting. Greeks basically run Homecoming, which is an awesome tradition. I would recommend going greek because it's a part of you, without taking over your life.

Greek life is very big on the Mizzou campus, especially during football season and Homecoming. They hold events just about every month, and members are required to attend meetings every week. This can be very overwhelming for incoming freshmen. Frats are a little more relaxed with their rules, whereas sororities are very particular about everyone following the rules. The members usually live in the dorms the first semester and then move in to the house after they have been accepted into the frat/sorority. 

Many people do not particularly like sororities and frats because the people in them act rude and sometimes won't associate with people who aren't in their frat/sorority or in a frat/sorority in general.
