Greek Life: DePaul is not that big on greek life. Greek life is pretty average at DePaul

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life at DePaul is pretty amazing because we have a wide variety of sororities and fraternities that anyone can get into. Being in a sorority or fraternity helps students make lifelong friendships with other DePaul students and get involved in more events around campus.

Greek Life: Lots of organizations to join and its nice for multiculturalism

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a lot of students participate in Greek life (around 8%). They are mostly participating in community services.

Greek Life: Greek life is great at DePaul, but there are no houses because of an old Chicago law. So that has its advantages and disadvantages, but I would highly suggest rushing because my experience wouldn't have been the same without being apart of it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at DePaul is much smaller and quieter than it is at a lot of state universities—probably due, in part, to the fact that there isn't any University-sponsored Greek housing on or around campus. While members of sororities and fraternities can rent off-campus apartments with their sisters and brothers, they will have a very difficult time finding a space large enough for everyone to reside together. Regardless, students in Greek life seem to really enjoy it, and to the Greek system’s credit, almost all of the sororities and fraternities place a strong focus on community service and dedication to the poor. However, the sense of community seems to fade on campus—Greek organizations tend to keep to themselves, and students who are not part of the system tend to avoid it. But, for students interested in joining a sorority or fraternity, there are plenty of each on campus.

Greek life at DePaul includes both social and professional fraternities and sororities. Most of the social organizations hold events that deal with community service or socializing, while the professional fraternities offer a lot of networking, community service, and social opportunities. Overall, Greek life at DePaul is fun for all those involved, but the hefty expenses and lack of campus housing don't appeal to the majority of students. At DePaul, there is a great sense of community, plenty of networking opportunities, and lots of chances to meet people and have fun whether you join Greek life or not.
