5 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's definitely very friendly and not at all rivalrous, the only drawback in my opinion is that sorority women do not get houses to live in which isn't really fair, and they have one pathetic black sorority with like two people in it

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am involved in Greek life and I absolutely love it. It is super inclusive and fun. 50 percent of the student body is involved.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life has a huge impact on Albion campus. About 50% of students are Greeks which causes their events to become the main source for entertainment or involvement on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of our campus. I enjoy hearing about what they do for the community and how they help people in need. They always have fundraising events and all the proceeds go to the community or the organization that they are trying to help. I wish I was able to join a sorority but I think they cost too much money.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: They do great things on campus but you have to be liked to get into the one you want to be in.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Although about half of the campus belongs to a Greek organization, Greek life is not as overwhelming as you'd expect. If you don't want to join a frat or sorority, don't worry about being chastised for it. Often the only way to tell who's in a sorority is by the Greek paraphernalia they wear since sorority girls don't live in sorority houses. It's a little easier to tell which guys are in frats since they do live together, but again, no one really sees it as a big deal. The different houses intermingle all the time. The frat parties do dominate the party scene, but if it's not your thing, you can usually find something else to do. A lot of first-years get sucked into the frat scene because there seems to be so little else to do. However, you will find that sometimes just chilling in the dorms is better than going out.

If you are interested in Greek life, Albion is a good place to get involved in it. Going Greek doesn't mean that it's going to take over your life. Most Greek organizations are concerned with their chapter's academic standing, and they all take pride in it. Rushing an organization is not troublesome, either, as the College has a strict "no hazing" policy that every chapter must follow. There are definite stereotypes that go along with each fraternity and sorority, though, so be careful in choosing the one that's right for you.
