4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As a new member of a sorority at Augustana, I would say that Greek Life here is pretty big. By big I mean that if you are the kind of person who wants to go to parties, always have something social to do, and be considered "popular," then I suggest that you join Greek Life. That being said, non-Greeks are not made fun of or thought less for not joining a sorority or a fraternity, but being such a small school, if you are not in Greek Life and have not joined any other group, you might feel isolated and not fully included if you are into the party scene. There is definitely a ranking among the sororities and fraternities even though the Greek groups mostly get along. I must say however that there is a definite ranking as to who are the "popular" groups and which groups are the "rejects." There are pretty large stereotypes that will follow you depending on which sorority or fraternity you join among Greeks as well as non-Greeks. In a nutshell, Greek Life is a huge deal if you are into the party scene. If you are the type of person who does not like to party and would rather stay in and watch Netflix every night (nothing wrong with that!:)) then Greek Life is nothing to worry about. However, I would like to mention that there is prestige in being in Greek Life so if you are into prestige and the whole "being popular" scene, join.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Although the social Greek groups aren't national, they are still very much worth joining. I am in a fraternity and the comradery built by the members creates a very positive way to make friends. All Greek groups get along well with one another so we often have social and charitable events with other groups.

Greek Life: I am not in a Greek group, but the people who I know in Greek groups are just like any other of my friends, although they are busier usually because they have to participate in events for their sorority or fraternity.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life on campus has a nice balance between service and parties. I am not part of Greek life, but I know many people who are and they don't regret it for a second.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you are into Greek life, then this is a great place to be. If not, you will be fine too, but Greek life truly comes out in the spring, especially with the five weeks of pledging that occurs. In my own opinion, Greek life changes people, but then again, maybe their true selves are just coming out. It gets aggravating at times in the spring when all of your friends suddenly disappear to go to sorority stuff.
