3 College Senior

Greek Life: There is not a strong segregation on campus between greek and non-greek members. For example, I am not a greek member and I like with one other non-greek member and a greek member.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Part of the theatre co-ed fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega. All of my friends were beyond surprised when they found out I'd pledged -- I really don't fit the bill. But there are a bunch of different types of sororities and fraternities, and mine is a national that focuses on volunteering. We're not the "throwing open parties" kind.

Greek life becomes huge in spring, during pledging. Pledging is 5 weeks long (for mine it was 2, and very, very easy). You come into contact with it even if you aren't pledging: people carrying paddles at all times, wearing their letters, standing in the lower quad enduring hazing. Yes that shit exists, please. You decide if you're up for it. But probably 75% of the student body is part of a Greek group

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life students are very nice and helpful, but then so are the rest of the students.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Im in the delta chi theta sorority at augustana and our pledging is fairly difficult, but usually enjoyable and satisfying when done. It seems that if you're not involved in Greek life there is little to do for entertainment

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Since we don’t have national sororities or fraternities--they are Augustana based only--it creates a very different atmosphere. Many people find their place in Greek life while many others are just as happy with out it. Joining a Greek group makes it a big part of one's life but to those not in Greek life, it doesn’t affect them much.
