Greek Life

Greek Life: Im not in greek life

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is certainly an option for those who are interested in joining a fraternity/ sorority, but certainly does not dominate every aspect of campus life. The dues are relatively steep for what the fraternities and sororities offer.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't one of the strongest attributes if the college, but it is something that is clearly present.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally think the sororities are very annoying because they don't have their own houses, and therefore are always using campus facilities for their recruiting and other events.

Greek Life: Not being part of Greek life is fine. You can still get into parties if you want to.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students agree that Greek life plays a role in campus life, but it does not dominate the social scene. There are several reasons for this. Freshmen cannot pledge their first semester, so they are forced to make friends outside of a fraternity or sorority. Even sophomore year, very few people live in Greek-sponsored housing. Most fraternities provide the opportunity to live in a frat house, but sororities do not. For those not in the Greek system, frat parties play a large role in freshman social life, but not so much thereafter. There is a lot of interaction between people who are part of the Greek system and those who are not. Students who become friends with fraternity guys often rave about the frat parties, but the entire student body does not express this opinion.

Approximately one-fifth of the student population is a member of a fraternity or sorority. Those within the Greek system claim to be satisfied with the level of involvement expected, but the requirements are less intense than other schools. Academics coexist with Greek life. For students who want a school with a strong Greek system, they might be less happy with Hopkins’ Greek system. People who don’t want to be a part of Greek life can find many other opportunities for social interaction, but for those who want the friendship and support of Greek life, Hopkins offers many different fraternities and sororities.
