2 College Junior

Greek Life: Honestly, Greek Life isn't that big here, and the partying scene at frats are mostly frequented by first years. Greek Life actually suffers under the backdrop of this school's liberal atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: About two frats that have the stereotypical frat vibe to them: DPhi and Sigma Chi. Its pretty easy to get in if you know people in the frats, and a little difficult but not impossible otherwise. However, a lot of greeks hang out with non-greeks and by no means does your status on campus raise by being in a fraternity or a sorority. Most of the sororities seem pretty typical to me.

Greek Life: Greek life is a part of campus life, but it is not essential.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Sororities are becoming more popular on campus; therefore, it's getting more competitive to join one. I chose to rush and join a sorority because I could see the girls I met during the process becoming lifelong friends.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at Brown is about as minimal as it can be. This is due to the Greek system itself and the University’s attempts to seamlessly integrate frats and sororities into daily campus life. All Greek houses are on campus and abide by the same rules and regulations as any other organization on campus. The parties, for the most part, are open and welcoming to all students. If students never want to see the Greek system, they can easily ignore it. On the flip side, if students want a real Greek experience, they can find it in one of the dozen houses that exist.

The Greek system at Brown is one of the many positive interest groups. Banners hang around the Main Green and Wriston Quad to inform students of coming parties and events. A handful of nights during the year, you see the crazy, Animal House-type antics that Greek systems present at any school. However, if you want a school where you are defined by the three Greek letters printed on your T-shirt, Brown is simply not the place.
