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.
