4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Part of A&M's social scene revolves around the Greeks (as with other black colleges) but no one will make you feel any less if you decide to not join an organization. Most of the popular orgs. on campus are; AKA and Delta for women; Alpha, Kappa, and Sigma for men.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek housings are not available at my school but there are Greeks. Greek life is a big thing but it is not the most important aspect of campus life.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is important to a lot of the students. It gives some a since of home away from home. I am returning to school after a career in the military so joing is not for me at this point I may consider it for the graduate chapter. I however still see what a majority do for the community and the outreach programs they have.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm a member of a Greek letter organization and it was a great experience and I've couldn't have made s better choice.

5 College Student

Greek Life: It's a great experience from block parties to yard shows. You'll just love the Greeks at my college.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is very big at A&M. As a matter of fact, there is an event called "Every Sunny Wednesday" that is specifically for the Greeks. It is a time for each Greek organization to stroll on the quad and strut its stuff in front of peers. Students always gather at the quad for this event. Greeks are very involved on campus. Most of them are in organizations like the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Honors Program. Most of the Greek organizations are seen all over campus because they are almost always putting on events for students. A lot of these organizations put on forums so students can come out and voice their opinions about important issues that young people are facing. They also host parties after big games or special events.

Students who do not want to be in a Greek organization can pledge other organizations that are non-Greek. For example, if your major has a society related to it, then you can pledge that group and be a part of that organization. Most majors have an organization that students can pledge. Also, the Honors Program and a few other extracurricular activities have organizations that students can pledge. A little food for thought for students who are thinking about pledging an organization related to their major: it looks really good on your application for graduate school.
