5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I would love to have the opportunity to become on the Greek family. They are not self centered and very open. The thing is that you have to wait till you are a sophomore.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greeks on our campus definitely keep the parties going. With the greek stroll-offs and greek takeover block parties, they keep life on campus very interesting. We do not have greek housing on our campus but that doesn't change their attitude towards anything. The greeks and non-greeks get along just fine as no one thinks higher of themselves than others.

Greek Life: To get into a D9 organization I feel as if you need to know someone to get in otherwise you won't make the improcessing phase.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: With all the hidden hazing and bad things happening under everyone influence i don't see why anyone would want to be a Greek that bad.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is a big part of the student body besides sports.

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.
