Greek Life: Greeks have the parties

Sororities won't pick you unless you're white, blonde, and thin

A Greek person stole my bike and stuck a sticker on it to represent their sorority. I stole it back.

Greek Life: I'm not personally in Greek Life, so I can't comment on the specifics, however it is big here on FSU's campus. You will see a tremendous amount of people wearing their Greek letters proudly on their chest. Greek Life has a huge impact on this school and the surrounding Tallahassee community. The Greeks have walks for charity, fundraisers, their infamous parties, and they bring in a lot of money (in regards to Greek alumni). Non-Greeks view Greeks as active individuals within the community, but they are more known for their huge parties (the fraternities, at least). Parties are a great way to have fun and meet new people. Both Panhellenic and Divine 9 Sororities and Fraternities are available here at Florida State and its impossible that you won't find the right Greek organization for you--a true place where you belong.

Greek Life: Greek life partakes in many philanthropies, like our dance marathon. They are also a huge part of social life on and off campus. Many non-greeks support greeks at events they host for there philanthropy. Everyone is supportive of each other. There is a wide variety of greek life option on my campus especially because because it is ranked at the top for largest greek life

Greek Life: heavily involved in my fraternity, and i can see where it will pay off in the long run. greek life has had a positive influence on me by forcing me into social situations, and applying my skills to grow philanthrophies i may not have encountered had i not joined.

Greek Life: I think the greek life at Florida State University is a great community. I do also believe that one does not have to be Greek in order to have the ultimate college experience at FSU. I believe Greek students are viewed just as every other student on campus is viewed, based on their attitude and attitude on campus and in the classroom. The FSU atmosphere is full of diversity ranging from tons of different organizations, clubs and teams. I believe this is what makes FSU such an amazing and positive environment.

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.
