3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are two frats and two sororities. They're not that big of a deal. One of the frats used to throw pretty cool parties, but they lost the house. Now, Greek life is basically just a few small insider clubs.

Greek Life: There are some sororities and fraternities on campus. Many are related to your field of study. Sororities and fraternities tend to throw bake sales and things of that nature as fundraisers.

Greek Life: Its horrible. We have the worst greek life. I've been around greek life for a while, the college back home, and it is nothing like it is here. It's bad.

Greek Life: There isn't much Greek life on campus and I don't mind. I have seen people start up a sorority because they thought it was a good idea, and I think it's great that they were able to do it. People don't come to Manhattan if Greek life is important to them; there is so much more Manhattan College has to offer than just frats.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life at MC is a joke. No frat houses, no good parties, and everyone thinks the people in frats are weird.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

No one really knows anything about the fraternities and sororities on campus. The one sorority will hand out fliers to promote parties and wear their T-shirts around campus; they can also be seen in Thomas Hall collecting money for children. Besides that, no one really knows anything about Greek life. One reason may be that the majority of the members may be commuters and don’t live on campus. Fliers are hung up around campus for Greek life meetings, and the fraternities and sororities are at the activities fair looking for new members, so it's hard to be invisible on a small campus like Manhattan. You will always know someone who is involved in a club, and that is how people find out about the different activities on campus.

The sororities and fraternities on campus are not completely invisible, but they are still not a substantial part of campus life, even if they have a good amount of members and often try to get things started on campus. There are also no fraternity or sorority houses, which may take the buzz out of joining these groups. It's sad that not a lot of people know about Manhattan College Greek life because it could really be fun and put some spice into college life.
