Greek Life

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek Life. People will tell you that you absolutely must rush to have a social life on campus. That is not true! Not going greek at Chapman was the best decision I made. It's honestly a distraction from student organizations, academics, clubs and finding real friends. Faculty really hates Greek Life. Definitely join clubs! The social justice community/ campus activism community is amazing here! Also, political clubs (CU DEMS) are AMAZING! Do not feel like you won't have friends if you don't go Greek. Hardly, some people have fun in Greek Life their year, then feel like they have no one. Instead, join clubs and student organizations! :)

Greek Life: Greek life is big here, but there are no houses, so that makes it a little different than most colleges.

Greek Life: I went through the rush process last semester but ended up dropping out in the middle, it just wasn't for me. Quite cliquey and strange.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at Chapman is different than it is anywhere else. There is no Greek housing on campus, which creates a positive relationship between chapters and allows them to interact regularly—Greeks have friends from different chapters and are very supportive of one another. They are also some of the most involved students on campus and many hold leadership positions such as orientation assistant, Associated Student officer, residence adviser, Student & Campus Life staff member, and Chapman Ambassador.

The majority of events on campus are hosted by Greeks. Most sororities and fraternities have two philanthropic events a year and host other events such as Greek Week and Skit Night. Chapman's party scene is also tied to Greek life. Fraternities will have parties every week, and it can be difficult to get into one if you are not Greek. Since Greek life is such a close-knit community at Chapman, there tends to be a separation between Greeks and non-Greeks. Greeks usually hang out with other Greeks, and most non-Greeks, of which the majority also happens to be film students, hang out with each other. Joining Chapman's Greek life is the fastest and easiest way to make hundreds of new friends, become part of the social scene, and gain leadership experience. The  chapters each offer something different, allowing any student to find his or her perfect sorority or fraternity.
