Greek Life: I hate the sororities here. There are no African American sororities.

Greek Life: Loud and obnoxious. They spit in peoples' food

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I myself will probably never pledge but I do see the benefits in pledging but I dont see myself going through with it.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I myself joined Greek Life when I joined the Newberry College wolf pack. It was by far the best decision I have made, Greek life at Newberry helped me gain lifelong friends, help the community, and gain leadership skills.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a Kappa Delta and I would have to say that joining this sorority and going through recruitment was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Our greek life is not as big as some of the bigger schools. We have three sororities and three fraternities. Each fraternity and sorority holds about 45 girls or boys. By being a Kappa Delta, I have made some of my best friends and roommates. I did not only gain fourty plus sisters, I gained a home away from home. I could come to these girls about anything and they would listen. Greek life is not about the parties or the sterotype, its about the brotherhood or sisterhood you have between each other. Each fraternity or sorority has a phanlathrophy. As a Kappa Delta, ours is Girl Scouts of America. We host girl scout evetns at the college and get to interact with the girl scouts and do activities with them. If I had could do it all over again, I would not change a thing about being a greek.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Greek Life on campus is very popular. Many of the students are involved in some kind of organization, and Greek life is one that is favored by many. Greeks on campus participate in many activities, such as philanthropic events where they raise money for an organization and help out around the community. The Greek community is looked up to around campus because all of the things they do for the community and campus. Some students disagree with the Greek system and have their opinions on each sorority or fraternity, but each group tries to incorporate non-Greeks into their events, making sure no one is left out or alone. Sorority housing is not available, but there are areas where one hall is occupied by the girls of that particular sorority. Fraternity houses are available but are located off campus. They serve as a meeting place for the brothers and a place to throw parties and mixers.
