College Freshman

Greek Life: I have little to no knowledge about the greek life

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love being Greek. It doesn't matter which letters you wear, Greeks are very friendly to one another as well as the non-Greeks on campus. Greek students tend to be a lot more involved on campus than non-Greeks, and I've noticed that we also hold more leadership positions.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not involved with Greek life at all.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not part of the Greek Life on campus so I cannot say much about it.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you are a non-Greek student then you are looked down upon by Greek students.

UNL students who choose to go Greek tend to like it, and students who decide to remain independent usually live productive lives, too. Most people admit that the Greeks can sometimes dominate the social scene, and they also say that it’s a fallible system. The general buzz around campus, however, is that there are a lot of great leadership, scholarship, and philanthropic opportunities for Greeks, and it’s certainly an option worth considering.

There isn’t much of a rivalry between the Greeks and the non-Greeks at UNL. As a matter of fact, many classrooms, organizations, and intramural teams are all a mix of Greeks and non-Greeks, and everyone seems to get along.
