4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally, I have yet to join a fraternity, but I'm looking into it after a friend of mine wouldn't stop boasting.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think it's great, and I've been contemplating on joining greek life. I never hear them being downtalked, you always hear people saying they want to join.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Only know a few people who are in Greek life, but they have pretty good parties and the girls seem to like it when they join one. However, Greek life is not on campus, so the houses are somewhere near the school. From my experience they treat people well, but can seem clique-y. So if you want in on a party, knowing someone is the key unless noted otherwise.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not participant. So I do not know much about it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not know anything about the Greek life at school. I am not a participant.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most of the Greek organizations at IUPUI emphasize scholarship, leadership, philanthropic service, and social development. Because there are no actual fraternity or sorority houses on campus, these Greek organizations tend to stay on task with service, development, and leadership. Partying with these groups is not something that students generally do. Instead, they get involved with them and do service projects like the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, or they attend events hosted by the organizations.

Greek life, in the traditional sense, is definitely lacking at IUPUI, but the focus on professionalism is very beneficial to the students that get involved in Greek organizations. For example, students can network with other students on a strictly professional basis in professional fields such as law and business. It is almost certain that they go out and interact socially with one another, having drinks or dinner, but house parties and traditional hazing is not an aspect of Greek life at IUPUI.
