Greek Life: I'm not a participant in "Greek Life" ..nor am I an advocate of it. But the fraternities/sororities at Hunter are present throughout the halls with fundraisers and tabling sessions as well as parties. I think these frats/sororities feel they have more of a purpose than just to party ..but I have only observed them in these events.

Greek Life: Greek Life is prominent in spurts throughout the semester, either hosting fundraisers or trying to recruit new members into their organizations. They are a friendly part of the school community and are welcoming to new members.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are a few Greek organizations at Hunter College that cater to individuals with all sorts of interests. There are honors societies like Psi Chi for psychology students, service sororities like Zeta Phi Alpha, and multicultural fraternities like Nu Phi Delta; there's even a coed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. However, Greek life at a commuter college is really difficult to organize (after all, the main point of belonging to a sorority or fraternity is actually living in a house with other members). Although Hunter has a few sororities and fraternities, most of them are not very active, and their presence on campus is largely limited to fliers and occasional bake sales.

Inside the organizations, however, lie a plethora of opportunities, which Hunter’s sororities and fraternities have not yet been successful in opening up to the campus. Some Greek organizations have causes (like illiteracy and breast cancer) that they are dedicated to ending. Such organizations host parties, shows, and such to fund these projects. Unfortunately, such events usually take place outside of the campus and are often not advertised on campus, which makes "regular" Hunter students question the existence of Greek life on campus. Basically, Greek life at Hunter College does exist and is slowly getting more vibrant, but you just have to watch out for fliers advertising the different organizations at the start of each semester.
