5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am a brother of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. We have the best house, parties and chef on campus. I never imagined being apart of greek life, now i cannot imagine my life without it. If you are a True Gentleman, Rush SAE. It will be one of, if not the best decition of your life.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not being in Greek life, there isn't much I can say. They are a presence on campus but not everyone is Greek. They hold fundraisers outside on the weekends when its nice out or other events in the MUB that are for the pubic.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They don't have hazing rituals.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty expensive at UNH compared to other schools. In my opinion, this creates somewhat snobby sororities. The fraternities are mostly known for partying. I do not hear that much about about the philanthropy of either.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life isn't too prevalent around campus, unless you are looking for a party. I don't really notice them much.

Since all the Greek houses are very close to campus and all in the same general area, it is hard for most students to ignore Greek life on the weekends. Overall, the amount of students in the Greeks system is small, but there are always parties on the weekends, and Frat Row is where most student enjoy going. The Greek system at UNH is large enough to satisfy those who really want to become involved without shutting out students who choose not to. Not being Greek won’t kill your social life, but pledging can make it a lot easier to meet people and keep up with the party scene.

Although the Greek system may dominate the social scene, there are rarely any problems with authorities, despite a few violations that have suspended a couple of fraternities. Contrary to popular belief, the Greek system at UNH is not just there to party. Many Greek organizations are closely tied to the school system, and they also help the community in a number of service programs. However, many students who join fraternities and sororities say that the Greek system at UNH made their experience twice as good, and the people they met are friends for life.
