4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I haven't joined a sorority yet but I'm hoping to.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They present themselves really well. they are friendly and welcoming. The encourage you but do not force you to join. They treat you, like they would want to be treated if they were joining the fraternity for the first time.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at CSU is present but not prevalent. It is an option for students who want to take advantage of it, but is not very visible for students who don't want to take advantage of it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life at Cleveland State University seems to be a bit laid-back and relaxed. I can say that I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity and variety of sororities and fraternities chapters available.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is not huge, so there is not much to be said. Greek life will be cliquey anywhere.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at Cleveland State University is nothing like what you see in the movies, or at any other college, for that matter. Most sororites active on campus are local chapters—meaning they were started at CSU and cannot be found on any other college campus. However, there are a handful of national sororites. Fraternity life at CSU is about the same as sorority life—except there are three fraternity houses, as opposed to the zero houses sororites have.

CSU is definitely different when looking at Greek life. It is not a big deal by any means, but the people who actually are involved are close to one another, which benefits their networking.
