4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at school has a positive vibe towards the students. Greeks do a lot of activities regarding the well being of the community.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not apart of Greek life so I would not know for sure.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life here is noticeable, as there are many Greek events and almost always some Greek presence in the circle. Almost everyone has at least one friend who is Greek or associates with them. Some have better reps than others.

4 College Student

Greek Life: as a greek student, we do not single out other students based on being greek or not. we do community service hours which help with the requirements for graduation.

College Senior

Greek Life: Please ignore the posts about Greek life. I do not know anything about life on campus as I am an online student. I could not progress through the questions without answering and the "n/a" choice was not available.

The Greek Life at UIW is not like it is shown in the movies or TV shows. It is much cleaner and more wholesome than what it is presumed to be. Recruitment occurs two times a year, at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. Rush week usually consists of a series of events and activities in which all of the applicants are encouraged to attend in order to get to know the current members of the organizations. Prospective members must also have completed at least 12 hours of college credit and have a certain GPA.

Being a part of the Greek Life at UIW is not about getting invited to a lot of parties. There is a lot of commitment involved. The Greek organizations participate in many community service projects throughout the year. In addition, each organization has different GPA requirements that members must maintain.
