Greek life is a huge part of the social scene at BSC, but both Greeks and independents tend to mix very well here, and the philanthropy events and many of the parties are open to everyone, so it never really feels like there is a barrier between those who are Greek-affiliated and those who aren't. Also, the Greek system has a late Rush, which happens two weeks after school starts, to ensure that people can get adjusted to their classes and the people before they start making any decisions about whether they want to go Greek or not. The first two weeks of school are carefully guarded because sorority and fraternity members are not supposed to wear any of their Greek attire or talk to any of the incoming freshman about their organization. After rush starts, however, they are allowed to tout their fraternity or sorority as much as they want.
There are plenty of other ways to get involved on campus if you are not Greek. Some people say that it's easier to meet people through the Greek system, but many swear by good old-fashioned people skills as well. There are some events catered to non-Greeks, such as Squid Day, a relatively new addition to BSC. While there are some people on campus who feel there is a great divide between the two groups, the school is so small that you end up getting to know most people anyway.
