3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is very popular at Eastern Illinois University. All over campus, Greek life is displayed by the attire that is worn by the members. I have had great experiences with those that are involved in Greek life.

Greek Life: The Greek life breeds a feeling of family.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I loved being in a sorority at EIU, I wouldn't of liked this school without it

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our Greek fraternities and sororities were separated. Not many people of color would be apart of the "Caucasian" fraternities and sororities. I would say, out of the Caucasian fraternities and sororities, I have only seen one African American on one Caucasian fraternities and there would be zero Caucasians on African Americans fraternities and sororities. Out of the many Caucasian fraternities and sororities and the 6 African American fraternities and sororities, they made it easy to talk to them and participate. Students enjoyed being around the Greek life. They had houses for Greeks to live in and or they could have their on apartment.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As someone who is Greek, seeing how Greek life functions in the everyday life of the average college age student is interesting. At EIU, I actually believe the social scene involved with Greek Life hurts students instead of helping them, as there is no punishment for not meeting the standards expected of the fraternity or sorority.
