Greek life at WKU is very active and involved. When students become a member of a sorority or fraternity, they are making a very large time commitment to that organization and to brothers or sisters (as well as a monetary commitment that varies with each organization). This extra committed time is filled with many interesting activities, including events like Spring Sing and Tug (which is a giant tug-of-war game), plus mixers, formals, softball tournaments, date auctions, and charity events. Because of these many activities, Greeks often form strong bonds with other members and can become separated from the rest of campus. This separation does not, however, create animosity between Greeks and non-Greeks. Though each sorority or fraternity often has a stereotype, feelings towards them are generally indifferent, and many people enjoy attending Greek events, as well as Greek parties.
Greek housing on campus is located near the bottom of the hill in Meredith and Zacharias, two suite-style residence halls. Most organizations also have a house located somewhere near campus, each of which varies in size and quality. There is no specific "Greek Row," and many of the fraternity houses are scattered. However, the sorority houses are generally in the same area.
