5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very lively and a very big part of campus. It requires much to join but it seems that it all pays off in the end.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I attend an HBCU, therefore, Greek life is very popular. Every where you go, you will always see a frat or sorority strolling. You would see them the most at games and parties. At events, just make sure that you don't get in the way of their line dances.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is a matter of personal preference. Some people support it and some are just indifferent.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are the life of the campus.

Greek Life: I think the Greek life at school is okay. Some people change for the worse which causes a bad look on the sorority or fraternity. Although it is not usually the sorority and is the person them self, many non-Greeks do not look at it that way. But, usually people change for the better or don't change at all. I am unsure if there is Greek housing on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is fairly decent at Norfolk State. The Greeks on NSU's campus are not very noticeable. It's almost as if you have to know someone who is Greek to tell. Some may be wearing an item that would display that they are Greek, such as a bag or keychain. At times, they hold informational meetings or forums that hold discussions about current events or things that may help out a college student. Also, there are events, such as a step show, where you can get a better glimpse at Greek life. The probate, or public display of initiation into the organization, is a very big activity that takes place. The area where it's held gets packed very quickly; seating is impossible to find once the probate begins, as it is a very exciting function.

If you want to get involved with or are interested in joining a Greek organization, it is best to talk to people and get acquainted with those in the organization. The more people you know, the better. Also, be sure to be in good academic standing; this is usually a requirement of any of the organizations.
