There are no fraternities or sororities at New College, and there is nothing remotely analogous to them, either. Novo Collegians stress inclusion, and many feel that the exclusivity of the Greek system is incongruent to the concepts that encompass the idea of an intact New College "community." The lack of a prominent Greek scene is a common reason why prospective students choose New College over other schools.
Though some students feel that organized groups may help break up cliques and inspire new friendships, the small size of the student body under a Greek system would most likely risk only further division. New College never has and probably never will have anything resembling Greek life.
