Greek Life


{{ error }}
4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life is a great way to get involved on campus and in the community. Beloit has Greek houses on the residential side. There is no divide between Greeks and non-Greeks. The Greek houses do good job of hosting great parties for the campus. In the spring, one of the Greek houses holds a live concert every year.

Greek Life: Really Greek life is saving me from transferring schools.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life has a fairly large number of students on campus but the interesting thing is that most of the time you won't know who's greek and who isn't and if you do it doesn't matter. Beloit isn't defined by its greek life.

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and it's been a great experience. The ladies take pride in academics and are active participants in clubs/organizations and the community. All Greeks have their own housing with a varying amount of people living in the house. The outside views are scattered about the feelings.

Greek Life: I'm not Greek but most of my friends are. They seem to do a lot of volunteering for it and they seem to enjoy being a part of the community.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When only 17 percent of the entire student body is Greek, how much pull can they really have? People notice them because most of the time they're the only ones throwing the parties, and people have to go somewhere. But if you would rather not have anything to do with the Greeks, the most you'll have to bear is walking past the houses on your way to class, but even that can be avoided with a little extra effort. If you are into the whole Greek routine, go ahead and pick one. They're a pretty welcoming bunch with just enough variety to suit different types of people. Just don't expect to automatically be a "cool person" because you've joined a Greek house; nobody will notice the change in you.

The thing to remember here is that Beloit Greeks don't fit the stereotype of Greeks everywhere else. They don't pull crazy scams all the time, their parties don't get out of hand, and they don't sport the expected Greek fashion, nor do most of them even play sports. No sir, we've bred a different sort of Greek over in Beloit, Wisconsin. Our Greeks are well-mannered for the most part, though you'll find a real jerk every now and then, and they do their homework. In fact, half the time, a Greek could be sitting right next to you in a class, and you wouldn't even know it until he or she comes right out and tells you. The membership of these organizations can be downright surprising.
