3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life seems like it's a great way for individuals to meet other individuals but I never really hear of any events that go on.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Can't really speak a lot about Greek Life since as a freshman, I have focused on adjusting to college life and academics. Next year, as a sophomore, I intend to participate in college activities and join a fraternity that will help with my major. I want to be competitive when I graduate from Texas State.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: they are always having some sort of function in the circle so it makes campus a little more up beat on those days.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: not a big part of campus life

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I would really like to join Greek Life because they do help out their community.

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.
