4 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's really beneficial in making friends and helping others out

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is good for the students who dorm and for the commuters that are close and have a car because things can get hectic during rush week.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life has never been something of my lifestyle, but when attending a Greek rush with a friend and hearing the sororities speak in depth of their founders and what their purpose is; truly made me open my mind up to it and take it into consideration.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think if you are involved within Greek life you do a lot throughout the campus, but even if you are not apart of Greek life it does not affect you socially or anything. Yuu can still go to their parties and have friends that are involved in Greek life

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I guess greek life is good here. I dont know much since I'm not apart of one

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is not a main part of life at Iona, as it's pretty low-key and seems only useful for parties. There are no actual houses for sororities and fraternities, and Greek life seems nonexistent at times, with relevance only during Greek Week and sponsored events. If you do want to join a Greek organization, there are more than enough options. It is a way to get involved if you are feeling lost and are looking to make a good group of friends. Greek life does sponsor events on campus, so its presence can be seen if you pay attention.

The sororities seem to have more of a presence than the fraternities, as sororities have more members that are actively involved with other organizations. Certain fraternities and sororities do have a bad rap on campus. Although this may sometimes be the case, it does seem at least that every student knows someone from Greek life, and there are a lot of good people in them. Greek life is not nearly as big like at other campuses and does not control social life, but these organizations do have good parties on occasion.
