4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not a whole lot of people are in it but you'd think everyone is the way the university promotes them. They're not especially rowdy or obnoxious and do quite a few charity events throughout the year. All in all they're pretty cool. Not involved in greek life my self but have a few friends who are and they all have they heads screwed on tight :)

Greek Life: Alot of people try to join greek Life. It wasn't for me. A lot of the sororities are very snobbish and will recruit based off of looks.

4 College Student

Greek Life: Greek Life is great for the college community and plenty of students get involved.

3 College Student

Greek Life: The Greek houses are not really run down, they are just old homes in the same area as campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not in tuned with the Greek life at drexel because

I am too old for that and have a husband at home.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is quite visible on campus, but there is certainly a social scene outside of the fraternities and sororities. Although they have a strong presence, a lot of money, and active members that sometimes hold positions in many other student organizations, percentage-speaking, not that many Drexel students are involved in Greek life. They do throw the biggest parties, but they are usually frequented by those already involved in Greek life, in one way or another. Drexel has a large commuter population, and that facet of students is not that involved in socializing on campus, especially with the Greeks. This is simply because they're not present during many evening social outings.

The students in Greek life tend to be awfully close, so it can be difficult to break into these cliques without an intention of rushing said fraternity/sorority. If interested in pledging, students should come to Activities Day during Welcome Back Week in the fall. Students will be able to meet a lot of Greeks and learn about their activities and organizations' histories. Some popular Greek activities include community service collaboration with other student organizations (like Circle K and Habitat for Humanity) and intramural sports competition (flag football).
