Greek Life: There is no greek like at the University of Notre Dame

College Senior

Greek Life: There is no greek life, but this only leads to a strong sense of community within our dorms. One that we aren't tested or hazed in order to get into.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are no Greek life divisions at Notre Dame, and most students don't really yearn for them too much. Although there's no way to contrast life at Notre Dame with life in a sorority or fraternity, students agree that the dorm atmosphere is a nice substitute that lacks none of the
Greek flavoring.

Dorm pride allows for friendly rivalries and makes up for the lack of fraternity/sorority "cliques." Furthermore, there are plenty of residence hall activities that mirror what you would find in traditional Greek houses.
