5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big, especially sororities, but if you don't join you'll probably still have a lot of greek friends. The sororities are not like at big schools at all-- there is no hazing, everyone has friends in other sororities, and your entire life is not dedicated to your sorority.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life has become a large part of my life. All the local Fraternities have their own charities that they will raise money for throughout the school year.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not currently in greek life, but am considering it for next year.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: It runs the campus too much

Students who are involved in Greek life at Mount Union say it's one of the best things about their college experience. Fraternities and sororities plan plenty of social events and parties, but at Mount, they are also known for their academics, leadership on campus, and philanthropic work. Greeks have a definite presence on campus and nearly one-fifth of the student body belongs to a Greek organization. Joining is easy—just sign up for recruitment with the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership and go through the process. Once you're in one of the four fraternities or four sororities, you'll belong to one of the most thriving parts of Mount Union campus life. Greeks are involved in just about everything on campus, from the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils to athletics to Student Senate and much more.

Greeks and non-Greeks have a mixed relationship across campus. Typically, no one will treat you differently if you do or don't go Greek, but there is some tension over the issue. Some non-Greeks believe that the fraternities and sororities are only as good as the parties they throw, while others are completely indifferent to Greeks or see them as clique-ish. However, many non-Greeks do look favorably upon the chapters, and a good number attends the Greek events and parties that are open to the campus community.
