4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life creates a sense of welcome and family for some. Its a part of life for many that is like an extension of family. I feel that at Newberry College there is no separate view of Greeks and there is no special Greek housing on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't decided if I'm going to join a fraternity yet.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is not that prominent on the campus. There are a handful of Greek Sororities and Fraternities but not as many as your typical college. Non-Greeks and Greeks are equal. Some of the Greeks do a little more than others when it comes to community service. The parties are usually off campus for most Greeks.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: We have really good greek life and its a sisterhood or brotherhood you will never forget.

2 College Senior

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

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.
