3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not into the Greek Life

1 College Junior

Greek Life: EVEN I AM GREEK THIS WON'T LET ME IN. It is not right they don't even look Greek. I am Greek and should get Greek life scholarship.

College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not actually a Greek, so I haven't noticed the scene. I have noticed, though, that there are a full range of organizations and Greeks, so there must be things like off-campus housing or activities.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: The sororities and fraternities are not only present but active on campus

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The campus is dead most people go to class and then leave. There are no dorms so every one lives off campus and most student are adult in their early 30s with jobs and families.

The Greek life at the University of the District of Columbia is not all that strong right now. Greek life is mostly visible via the benches that are painted in the courtyard between buildings 32 and 44. There are also some events on campus that are sponsored by the fraternities and sororities. But, overall, Greek life is not that big of a deal here.
