3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are not a big thing here.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no greek life on Webster's campus, anyone involved in Greek Life goes through the city of St. Louis in an unaffiliated program from the school.

Greek Life: I am in the one sorority we have on campus, and it's one of the best things I've joined here. I never in a million years thought I'd be in a sorority, but Delta Phi Epsilon is nothing like any sorority or sorority stereotype I'd seen. We throw no campus parties, and are very conscious of our image (being the only greek life on campus and still a relatively young organization). We are extremely involved in community and philanthropy work, and hopefully campus will begin to see us that way.

College Junior

Greek Life: We do not have Greek Life much on campus.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have muh of a Greek life at all. The community we are in doesn't allow us to have Greek houses so there is an off campus sorority but they don't even have a permanent place. I honestly think that Webster would become more unified if there was a larger Greek system.

The concept of Greek life is fairly new to Webster. The fraternity Delta Upsilon died after a lack of interest from new members. The sorority Delta Phi Epsilon, however, has tried maintaining. Even though there is no Greek housing or dorm placement for sorority members, there is a definite sense of community among the sisters.

Even though there are participants in Delta Phi Epsilon, their impact has been quite minimal on the overall campus experience. The majority of the campus has not had any affiliation with Greek life, and many of them find themselves doing quite well without it. There is no pressure in joining, nor is there a sense of "missing out" if you are not interested. It is treated as any other student organization would be, and it gives chances and opportunities to whomever is interested and wants to get involved.
