3 College Senior

Greek Life: I personally am not in a sorority, but have had no hinderances because of my GED status.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is a significant part of campus culture.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is pretty good and personally I think that it is a good platform for socializing. I have not joined a fraternity because I cannot afford to pay the membership fees but even though the frats are open for me in the parties. Its a good time.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Some Greeks are great people, but unfortunately you do have a lot of snobby/asshole Greeks.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very popular on campus, but no one feels pressured to join. People will never treat you differently if you choose not to participate.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is a great alternative to traditional student housing and will expose you to a lot of different people. At IWU, each of the frats and sororities differ in the kinds of people that join. TKE is full of soccer jocks, Sig Chi has the rest of the jocks, Sig Pi is home to more theater and fine arts majors, and so on. Each house is its own community, and in that sense, they are much like the small halls on campus. The rivalries between frats are played down, though toilet paper occasionally makes its way into the trees from time to time. Feuds within the sororities are sometimes notorious and sometimes petty, but always hilarious.

Greek activities do not extend beyond parties, for the most part. There will be benefit concerts and carwashes and food drives, all of which contribute to this cause or that, but none of which generates considerable interest. You can't always recognize frat guys on the quad, but sorority girls always carry their standard-issue tote emblazoned with the requisite Greek letters. Frat guys are unmistakable at basketball games as they stand right on the sideline and jeer the ref, initiating most of the excitement in the stands. At key times, members' Greek affiliation is evident, but the rest of the day, it's just the place they live.
