3 College Junior

Greek Life: As someone who is not in greek life, I can only speak from the outside looking in. I do not know much about it as a whole. They do not seem to have a massive impact (good or bad) on the people that are not involved. I have never been the most social person, preferring to have a small group of close friends to a huge group. Due to this, I do not regularly attend parties so I am fairly indifferent towards that part of greek life. Overall, it seems to be generally enjoyed by the people involved without being overbearing on the people that choose not to be.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is small at Loyola, there are no houses and not a lot of parties. Each fraternity and sorority is dedicated to their philanthropy and their brotherhood/sisterhood. These people all come together and work with each other to do great things on and off campus to better the student body and the community.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There are many sororities and fraternities to choose from. The presence of the Greek life is not that big. I do hear from people that the experience is not for everyone, but for some, it is an amazing experience. The Greek housing is pretty near the main campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: A lot of people wanted to do it but I am not really sure everyone got in. I just don't like Greek life

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't a very big deal at Loyola. Only like 13% of people are a part of it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The only people saying negative things about Greek life are the students not affiliated. Greeks at Loyola are relatively quiet, and there are only four social fraternities and four social sororities, which makes them a relatively tight-knit group. Recruitment is popular in the fall, and in recent years has been held on the same extended weekend for both fraternities and sororities, culminating in a bid night that offers several parties at both the bars and off-campus houses. Greeks aren’t a large part of the Loyola experience by any means, but due to the small size of the Greek community, can become a large part of an individual’s experience.

The community certainly is a growing one however. Although they do not have a house, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, founded on campus in 2000, has quickly become the largest and most active fraternity on campus. By sponsoring concerts and service initiatives, SAE has helped reintroduce a certain level of positive competition with the two other most prominent frats, Alpha Delta Gamma and Sigma Pi. Although it is still the only fraternity officially allowed to display its letters at its house, ADG has been something of a disappointment in recent years, having faced a number of disciplinary actions, and being rendered practically powerless in the Loyola community. The sororities also have their ups and downs, but they do throw some very popular mixers, although you must be on the list (or attached to someone on the list) to get in. In the end, only about 12 percent of Loyola students go Greek. Those who do generally have a blast, but the many non-Greeks are generally indifferent to their presence on campus.
