Greek Life: The presence of Greek Life is everywhere on campus but it's equally easy to avoid them. Getting into a fraternity or sorority is fairly easy, especially in a small school. You essentially have to be TRYING not to get in in order to not get in.

Greek Life: They arent seen much but their presence is felt on the campus. Generally speaking the people that are in the greek part of life are the stand out students that make a difference ad people want to be a part of or friends with.

Greek Life: I am a sister of Alpha Omicron Pi at Bryant University. It has been a great experience. Occasionally there are problems with the rest of Greek Life but administration is careful and efficient at fixing problems. Non-greeks are not allowed at our parties so the rest of the school does not rely on us for the party scene. There is a somewhat negative impression of Greek life on the rest of the Bryant community, I am not sure why because we do great things for the community.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Although only small percentages of female students and male students are involved in Greek life at Bryant, the fraternities and sororities still have a noticeable presence on campus. One reason for this is that members tend to be very involved in campus and the community. They do a lot of programming, volunteering, and putting on philanthropic events and causes; many members are involved in other clubs and organizations around campus, as well. And then of course there are the parties. Much like the rest of the Bryant population, Greek life members tend to be "work hard, party hard" kind of people. Greek parties are among the biggest on campus, and attendees often dress to match the party theme (if there is one). Popular themes include highlighter parties, ugly Christmas sweater parties, and '80s. Greek housing at Bryant is different from many other schools because there are no designated fraternity or sorority houses. Instead, members are given the option to live in Hall 1 after freshman year, which serves as Greek life housing. One perk of this is that members who choose to live in Hall 1 are automatically placed there, so they do not have to deal with the dreaded lottery system. Seniors typically live in the townhouses, which serve as their fraternity or sorority houses.

Traditionally, all members of Greek life also participate in Relay for Life at the end of Greek Week.
