3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not into Greek life but it is a very big thing at our campus. Almost every event at the school is from a frat or sorority. I have friends who tried to get into sororities but in the end either decided to not join or didn't make it. So I think maybe some are very picky and clique-y (which is why I personally hate them).

Greek Life: It's great to see groups of people come together in their brotherhood/sisterhood to make our campus and the community a better place. I have seen many greek activities on campus that act as a positive contribution, such as fundraisers and activities that bring awareness to social issues. There is no hazing allowed on our campus and Greeks and non-Greeks get along very well, which makes the social atmosphere very peaceful. I am currently trying to set up a social sorority in my school for music students, which I believe will create a tighter bond within the women in the music department.

Greek Life: If you are not in greek life in school you probably will not have that amazing and fun college experience.

Greek Life: They don't really throw that many parties. I'm an athlete and have friends in sororities and frats. It's not really cliquey. If you like someone you're friends with them, no matter what they're apart of.

Greek Life: Greek life is HUGE at this school and seems like a bunch of cliquey high schoolers in my opinion. If you aren't a part of greek life you are basically irrelevant.

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.
