Lesley University does not have any fraternities or sororities, and most students do not seem too interested in instating Greek life on campus. In its history, Lesley has never had any form of Greek life, and it isn’t likely it will be initiated any time in the near future; since Lesley is so focused on equality and inclusion of all people, traditional Greek life doesn’t really fit with the school’s mission. However, many of the surrounding colleges, such as Tufts and Boston University, have both fraternities and sororities that throw pretty good parties.
In place of Greek life, most of the close bonds between Lesley students are created by joining a sports team or a club/organization on campus. In fact, many students find that these are the places they end up making their closest friends. Also, each dorm at Lesley has a theme for each semester, and sometimes inter-dorm competitions engender camaraderie among the members of each dorm.
