3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't really my thing, but the parties can be fun. I don't feel left out if i don't join Greek life.

Greek Life: I think Greek life has a presence on campus if you're looking for it. It's certainly not the only thing to do on weekends, but it's definitely an option. Our frat houses are off campus and sororities cannot have houses in MA because they're considered a brothel. Frats being off campus complicates things so we have a "shuttle system". Essentially, frat XYZ is trowing a party at their house so brothers that live on campus will make their room the shuttle room. If you want to go to the house you go to the shuttle room and there are brothers "running" which requires they stay in the shuttle room and run people who want to go to the parties to the shuttles. The shuttles are just some of the brother's cars driven buy pledges, new brothers and brothers who volunteer if there is the need, but they stay sober. I've never seen a shuttle driver drink and I've seen pledges dropped for drinking when they were driving. Some people still choose to stay on campus, but I think it's relatively safe.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek Life at Bentley is slightly untraditional when compared to other local universities. There are no fraternity or sorority houses on campus, and only a few frats have brothers who rent a house off campus for the purpose of having parties. They are a visible force on campus, but mostly serve a social purpose. The events and fundraisers run by the Greeks are something to be proud of; however, their main function is to appeal to those who have a compelling need for sisterhood or brotherhood.

The Greek campus events are usually for a good cause and really fun. Off-campus parties are usually pretty crazy, so be sure to take a friend or two and keep an eye on what you are drinking and how much. It’s basically mandatory for every freshman, especially the girls, to check out frat parties during your first year at college. Frat guys will come to your floor and sell tickets for the party and will run shuttle buses to the off-campus houses. After freshman year, the frat parties on campus are mostly Greeks and friends of Greeks only. Guys who aren’t in frats will have a harder time getting into frat parties, but having a pretty lady on your arm can help.
