4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wouldn't know but they throw parties

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: To be honest, I haven't really thought about the Greek life here. I'm a Freshman as I'm writing this so the only time I hear about them are at large gatherings.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm part of Greek life. It's definitely one of my best decisions in college to become a part of a fraternity. The only downside is the money you have to pay, but if you are able to do it I'd definitely recommend it.

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.
