5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There may not be many options, but Greek life is very visible on campus. There are five social fraternities and six social sororities on campus. Of those, two fraternities and three sororities have official, university-recognized housing in their own chapter houses, while the rest have unofficial off-campus houses (as of May 2015). It is definitely worth going through recruitment to see if any of the fraternities/sororities are right for you!

Greek Life: I personally believe that Greek life is a waste of time, because you are required to attend all of the events and almost always have to spend time with your friends in the Greek house instead of spending the time with the friends that you want to.

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life right now, but I have a ton of friends who are. People in Greek life are so nice and really care about their different philanthropies. There are six houses on campus and they are all pretty nice, not run down but not extremely lavish and exquisite. There are non-Greeks who look down on Greek students but for the most part no one has a serious issue with Greek life.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is pretty strong and involved in campus life. It is hard to walk around campus and not bump into someone involved in Greek life. The Greeks care deeply, often doing service or caring for their brother/sister chapters at another school. When the Delta Sigma Phi house burned down at Illinois State University, the Delta Sigs from Millikin had a 24-hour "podium stand" to help raise money. Greek Week also occurs on campus, and that's when you'll really see them participating. Members of the fraternities and sororities are usually nice, and they are not snobby. Typically, people believe that people within Greek life are stuck-up or not intelligent, but those are the stereotypes. It is all a matter of knowing the person and not simply the fraternity or sorority.

For housing, most Greeks have a house. By Weck and the New Halls, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Tau Kappa Epsilon have their houses. Pi Beta Phi and a few of the other Greek houses are across the street from Leighty-Tabor Science Center, and Tri-Delta is a little farther from campus. A few organizations, such as Sigma Lambda Gamma, do not have houses, so members are allowed to remain within the dorms or wherever they take residence.
