Greek Life: The Greek life is a controversial topic to talk about considering the fact that you'll get different answers from people. Some people love it while others hate them because of the things they have done in the past. I think Greek life is interesting and even though i am not involved in Greek life i have nothing against them. The housing is very dirty majority of the times i am there and it gives a bad first impression.

Greek Life: You hear about the greek life on campus, but it's not too big of a deal

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life as I am not involved. But, I know that it costs a lot of money and they do some things around campus. People think that the Greeks are snobby and hate all non Greeks

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.
