Greek Life: I think that non greek students resent greek students for their privileges to some extent. Personally, I don't really care that much about it, and I have some great friends that are greek. However, there is definitely a stereotype of frat guys being alcoholic jerks and sorority girls being loose, arrogant, and airheaded.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not participate in Greek life activities. I really see it as buying friends and putting yourself through torture for no reason, so I'm probably not the best person to ask. In my opinion, many Greeks just seem obnoxious and live in their own worlds -- if you're not one of them, you're no one. I've never been to frat/soror rows and I don't really feel the need to. Most places are invite only anyway.

Greek Life: Greek life at Auburn is pretty big, not Alabama big, but definitely a nice size. The Panhellenic council are the main force on campus, so there is not a lot of diversity; don't expect to hear much from the minority fraternities or sororities that are also active. Greeks are known for their parties, socials, and presence at football games. Overall they are nice people, but they tend to stick to themselves. There are no sorority houses due to the "multiple girls=a brothel" law, but there are fraternity houses near campus. Sororities are housed in certain wings of the Village dorms.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The general consensus is that going Greek is mostly your own personal choice. Greek life is prevalent, but it doesn't dominate the social scene. Some people never go through rush and are happy with their choice. Others stay with a particular fraternity or sorority throughout their entire college career and are equally happy.

There's no doubt that pledging is a great way to meet a lot of people and become involved in a lot of activities. However, if fraternities or sororities aren't your style, then there are plenty of other opportunities to get involved in school. Keep in mind that not all Greek organizations are social. There are several sororities and fraternities that are community related, if that's more to your taste. No matter what you choose, you should feel comfortable with what you do.
