Greek Life: they seem like decent folk

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life at NJIT is very popular. There is on and off campus housing for Greek students.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I havent heard much about NJIT's greek life but I know its there

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is good because it helps you socialize. NJIT is all about academics so most of the greeks are intelligent kids.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Being a member of Greek life myself, I can easily say that being Greek at NJIT is pretty great especially because of the fact that Rutgers-Newark is right next door you can intermingle with a lot of different fraternities and sororities from both schools. The Greek community is pretty tight and you can easily find an organization on campus that fits you. Greek housing behind honors is probably one of the nicest in the nation, it's basically a dorm for your entire organization and was built back in 2013. There is a frat row where you can choose to stay if your organization has their own house, but the houses aren't as nice and have to be privately owned.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Greek organizations are usually very active on campus and are viewed as positive influences. With the exception of one or two unfavorable organizations, they all remain very active within the community through service activities and leadership positions. Many fraternity and sorority members serve as RAs, the heads of clubs, or tutors at the school.

Housing is available for a small number of the Greek members, and non-Greeks are often welcome to hang out with the organization members. The fraternities and sororities sometimes hold study sessions and mixers to help NJIT students—especially new students—fit in and do well at the school.
