Greek Life: Being a member of Greek life, I can tell you that fraternities and sororities are very pure, and help the community drastically.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life on campus is pretty big, but it is not required. Not all of the students participate in greek life. The one's who do participate do alot for the commmunity and for the school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't like Greek life. It's just not for me, but I have a lot of friends who are part of Greek life. It doesn't set anyone apart from others.

Greek life is a valuable asset to UNCW's campus, but it's not a dominating one. These are great groups to take advantage of if it's fitting for a student, and about 12 percent of campus is involved with Greek organizations. The Greeks definitely have a well-established presence on campus without being too overbearing. Greek life is not necessary for students to join if it's not their thing, but it promotes leadership and service for those who participate. For a lot of Greek life participants, being a part of a sorority or fraternity is just one organization or form of involvement they dedicate their time to.

Housing for Greeks is lacking on campus. Most of the sororities have their own designated suite in the University Suites on campus, and a few of the University Apartments belong to some of the fraternities, but besides that, there are no other on-campus locations. Fraternity brothers may get a house together off campus, and a lot of participants live with people outside of Greek life. Balance is a key aspect and a noticeable factor of UNCW Greek life. As to how the campus community views Greeks, it really just depends on what time of year it is. When it is rush time at the beginning of the school year and Greek Week in the spring, Greek presence can be a little bit more overwhelming on campus. For the most part, though, the Greeks are viewed as another vital part of UNCW involvement and campus activity.
