Greek Life


{{ error }}
3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am in a sorority and it's not all it's cracked up to be. I like being social and having events, parties, philanthropies and connections, but true sisterhood isn't going to magically appear after rush. They're mainly full of superficial girls who are basically stuck in high school. You still need to meet people in your classes and dorm to find true friends and connections. 99% of fraternity guys are cocky and gross, be warned. But hey, the houses are pretty and food is great.

Greek Life: I am not apart of greek life, however next fall i am planning on rushing. I have seen that being involved in it opens a lot of doors to meet new people and make connections as well as having friends for life. Philanthropies are also apart of every sorority or fraternity on campus. The houses are all very nice as well as the meal plans for the sororities.

Greek Life: Lots of greeks on campus

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life has allowed me to meet some amazing people and help me get more involved in the Tallahassee community as well as some great philanthropic organizations. Being a non-greek my freshman year then going greek for my sophomore year I've seen both sides. Either one is survivable on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Like any major university, FSU has an active and thriving Greek scene. Rush week is always a huge event, with an almost endless succession of parties and gatherings that allow potential members the opportunity to learn all there is about the fraternity or sorority they are most interested in. However, Greek organizations tend to have a partying reputation, but many students do not notice all of the volunteer work the Greeks perform-all of the time and effort that goes into these events. For example, the Greek community at FSU has raised and donated over $100,000 and 20,000 service hours to charitable organizations over the past academic year. Despite many of the preconceptions, Greek organizations at FSU set the standard for leadership and community service.

As far as the social scene is concerned, Greek life is not "the" dominant force on campus. Some students enjoy the camaraderie and lifelong friendships they develop through membership in a fraternity or sorority. Greeks throw parties, but so do other organizations. The Greeks do dominate student government and homecoming elections, but that is to be expected, and that is how it is at any major university. The majority of students at FSU do not belong to a fraternity or sorority, and many would agree that their social lives are just as active as any Greek's.
