3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Great life is not as a big a deal at AC as it is at other schools but it still has a presence. During pledge week there is a lot of petty drama that goes on as to who gets in where, especially in the sororities. Greeks are basically responsible for all the parties/drugs/alcohol on campus. A few have been on probation this year. Greek groups argue with one another consistently about stupid things, pledgeship activities include things like inducing vomiting to fill a bucket, eating onions, burning ones skin, and doing sexual favors. One group was kicked off campus for beating a girl nearly to death.

Greek Life: There are a few frats and sororities. You can have the party people, or overly obsessed Christians. Take your pick. AC also banned pledge ship this year, so rush is more like turning in an application and receiving a confirmation e-mail the next day.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life adds a lot to the social atmosphere on campus. They are usually pretty involved on campus, and have events and parties that the whole school is invited to, and hang out in the WCC(main building on campus). Greek groups don't have recognized housing. Upper class-men can have housing off campus, which can be a Greek house if members of the same group inhabit the house. As a member of greek life, I don't know how we are viewed by non-Greeks.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The administration has started cracking down on some of the more reckless frats, which is good, because some of them needed it (rumors abound). Some of them are really good about service, but no one is going to really fall behind in hours just because they're not in a frat.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There aren't any national one except for APO which is pretty lame

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The number of students participating in the Greek system may seem like a lot sometimes, especially when these students are usually the most involved in other campus organizations, such as student government, Residence Life, and most of the major clubs. Greeks definitely have a presence in the student body, but it is not overwhelming. Most Greek parties are open to everyone after a certain time, and Greeks are anything but exclusive. Greek members hang out with members of other Greek groups, as well as non-Greeks. There is not a great amount of discrimination by Greeks to those that are independent.

If you think you want to go Greek, there's a Greek group for everyone, whether you're preppy, athletic, average, a non-drinker, a misfit, a partier, or obnoxiously happy. However, if Greek isn't your style, there's also a place for you in another kind of organization, and you won't feel completely lost in the social scene. The school's fraternities and sororities are all locally chartered, so it is not like the normal Greek scene you’d find at larger universities. Rush and New Member Education take place in the spring, and if students don't want to pledge their first year here, they can postpone it until their sophomore or junior year. In general, fraternities and sororities are just another way to get involved, and all AC students love to do that.
