5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of campus life, however, even if you are not involved in Greek life it is easy to become involved on campus. Greek life is amazing because the chapters are big enough to have an impact on campus, but they are also small enough so that you know every girl/guy in your chapter.

Greek Life: It's all about cliques. If you're a skinny, tan, blonde girl with a lot of money, you'll be asked to join ADPi. Not to offend anyone (as I was even asked to join this Sorority, but if you are a misfit, you'l be invited to AOPi. If you're pretty, but also different and weird (a combination of the first two) you'll be asked to join ZTA.

If you want to rape girls, you'll join SAE (sexual assault expected). If you join basically any other Frat, you're a decent guy.

If you're in any Greek group, they FORCE you to spend all of your time with the group. They have bans on who to spend your time with, and even prevention's from having boyfriends until after a month of being in the group (crazy stuff...).

You party every weekend, until a 17 year old boy gets killed because he was drunk and walked into traffic. Then a couple months later you party some more.

You spend thousands of dollars to be in a club.

They say it's all about the organizations they help, but its for the instagram likes and the twitter reposts. It's to pose for the cameras on the news and say "look what I'm doing" instead of actually helping anyone.

Instead, I didn't join a sorority, and I took it to myself to actually go out and help my community. I actually help and work with people with disabilities, unlike the sororities and frats that say they do for publicity.

I say it's "ok" because some of my friends are in sororities and they are wonderful people. But they tell me on a daily basis how horrible it is, and I've seen first hand what some of the Frat boys have done to my friends.

Greek Life: Greek Life is everywhere on campus. However they don't really mind if you are not in Greek Life. It's a nice balance and of social and school, and a great way to get involved on campus.

Greek Life: I joined a greek org and love it. one of the best decisions I've made since at school

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think around 70% of the students are involved in greek life, so it is a major part of the social life at FSC. As a non-greek person, I don't see a lot of snobby and cliquey people; they are all really nice, and don't look down on you if your not greek.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is a big part of Florida Southern and is represented in many of the school clubs and organizations. Unlike typical stereotypes, the Greek organizations do not have clique reputations, such as the preppy sorority or the jock fraternity. They do have parties, but these parties are not the main attraction on campus. Greeks are very competitive with each other in events, but not to the point where there is obvious animosity between organizations. Sorority and fraternity members often live in Publix Commons, and although it can be nice to live together, it is not the same as the big houses that are available at some other colleges.

You can definitely have a good time on campus without being in a fraternity or sorority. If you are not part of a Greek organization, there is no pressure to join one because the campus is diverse enough to allow everyone to find their own niche. Be aware that when you do join Greek life, you are making a huge time commitment and spending a lot of money on dues and other various Greek merchandise.
