3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at LHU is okay. Greeks do different fundraisers and community service events of different sorts, but I feel like they could be a little more involved. Some Greeks are viewed as arrogant by non-Greeks, some are viewed as the same as other students are. There are no kinds of Greek housing available.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't see much of it, but sometimes they have meetings in the auditorium.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't get involved but they seem active in promoting charity.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Most of them are pretty cliquey, which turns a lot of students away.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally am not in Greek life but I know some people who are and they are really nice. Everyone treats each other the same around here whether you are an athlete, average joe or in Greek life.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is not as popular at Lock Haven as it is at other colleges like Penn State. However, the fraternities and sororities at Lock Haven support a national philanthropy and participate in several community service projects, providing opportunities to help others who are less fortunate. In addition to building friendships with others on campus and having a family away from home, being a part of a sorority or fraternity can look amazing on one's resume, too. Plus, all members are required to maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA.

The social aspect of Greek life includes intramural sports, date functions, football games, Greek Week, and other organized events. Women are not allowed to have a sorority house on campus because of a law that forbids more than five girls living in a house. Men are allowed to have their own houses and place letters outside of their homes. Greek life is something that you have to make time for and have to really want to take part in because it is time-consuming.
