3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We're not big with Greek life, if you want to be apart you're welcomed and most frats and sororities will take interest and just about everyone is given a bid.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I really don't have an opinion about Greek Life. I'm not going to be a typical person that rushes a sorority, but I'm not going to be rude to someone who does. The sororities/fraternities on campus are full of well-mannered people. They don't cause drama on campus and I have no problem associating with them.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is very involved on campus and in community

4 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life seems pretty active on campus. They are involved in various fundraiser, volunteer opportunities and fun activities. There is no noticeable different treatment between greeks and non greeks

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I just finished my term as president of my sorority and it has been one of the greatest experiences I could ever want! It is a great way to get involved and it truly a meaningful experience and brings forth so many opportunites

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life offers friendship, leadership, involvement, and service opportunities to its members. Although freshmen cannot join a Greek organization in their first semester, they are welcome to attend recruitment events to meet other students, both Greek and non-Greek, and learn about the different Greek organizations. Each Greek organization has its own house where members can live; some are on campus, and others are off campus. However, some Greeks choose other housing options and never live in their organization's house. Recently, Gannon's Greek community made a unified effort to improve its relations with non-Greeks by conducting a survey with them and holding a meeting to review the results. Some non-Greeks had negative comments about the Greek organizations, but the Greeks are actively working toward improving their relationship with non-Greeks. 

Time, expenses, hazing, and alcohol are some of the biggest concerns for students considering Greek life. Joining the Greek community is definitely a time commitment that differs with each individual and organization. Expenses also vary by organization. Though horrible hazing incidents have occurred in different parts of the country, Gannon does not tolerate this type of behavior. The University has very strict hazing and alcohol policies concerning the Greek community, and it requires its members to go through hazing and alcohol programs.
