1 College Freshman

Greek Life: As La Roche being a Catholic school they only offer academic Sorioirtys and Fraternity's. I always loved the thought of being apart of Greek life but not at this school.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: I am part of Zeta Alpha Pi, which is a science sorority. I know there is also a group for the Criminal Justice majors as well as English and Psychology. There was a National Leadership Society added just last year, but I have not seen them out and about in the community too much. This school is only 53 years old and we don't have large Greek presence at all; no houses, wacky traditions, or inductions or anything. The school is rapidly increasing it's size each academic year and is looking to expand to a University soon so I would expect to see a surge in Greek life with an influx of students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The one phrase you will never hear on the La Roche campus is "pledge week." For reasons unknown, the College doesn't have any social sororities or fraternities, though there are a few academic Greek societies. Some students think it's a good thing that there isn't any traditional Greek life here while others find it's a bad thing. So, it seems to be a matter of personal preference. Although the college experience doesn't seem to be quite complete without the chaos of a pledge week or nightly parties thrown by different Greek groups, the students here don't seem to have a problem throwing parties of their own. Attend one frat party, attend one hundred frat parties. Beer bongs, keg stands, and stumbling through the streets are not the types of things that La Roche students are looking for.

Theories and speculation as to why La Roche has no Greek life are made on an almost daily basis. The main assumption is that it's because of the College's Roman Catholic basis. But, whatever the reason, La Roche does not and never has had any social Greek life.
