3 College Freshman

Greek Life: not sure... we have societies instead.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is kind of required for all students. We are required to join "societies." We also are not housed together as a society, unless you specifically request it, and even then, it is basically all luck to see if you will get in the same room, or on the same hall as the person that you requested.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: All students are required to join a society. We have fun and seek service opportunities. It's not like Animal House, or stupid party colleges.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Um…if Greek=society, then Greek life greatly affects the social atmosphere of campus.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: its one of my favorite things

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Everybody is a Greek member at BJU! All students under the age of 23 are required to participate in the Greek societies. Of course, there are no crazy dance parties, but the societies still have plenty of activities. Sports activities are important on campus since BJU athletes compete within the societies. Date outings and stag outings occur once a year to bond the societies together. BJU societies encourage students to get involved in community service. Rather than wasting time and money partying, students get to serve and be a part of the Greenville community. On Fridays, there’s a society meeting in an assigned society room instead of chapel. The meetings last about 30 minutes, and students play games, worship, and share testimonies. Some students take advantage of the society hour by meeting new people or spending it as a study time.

Each society has its own personality. Freshman rush starts at the beginning of the school year and allows new students to take a peek at the atmosphere and personality of each society before they confirm. Once the student chooses a society, he or she is in it for the rest of his or her college life. Society activities are required every Friday, with each society taking attendance. Joining the right society is the key to surviving BJU.
