3 College Student

Greek Life: I know some people who are part of the Greek life, but I take no part in it. I feel indifferent about Greeks, but willing to befriend them is they want.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Frats are stupid to join unless the whole school revolves around them.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There's quite a few people in Greek Life, but its not a big part of campus culture at all. Since there's no houses, people mainly treat them as student organizations and they're very lowkey and not too cliquey. Some groups are definitely friendlier and more welcoming than others, but no one looks down on you for being in Greek Life or not. They mostly go to parties at other school's houses since we don't have our own, and there's plenty of parties to go to that aren't Greek affiliated.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Don't come here if you're ONLY looking for Greek life, it's really not that big a part of the school. I personally love that about it. It's there if you want it, and it is a very rich Greek life scene if you're in it. I rushed Beta Theta Pi my sophomore year and had an awesome time, but ultimately decided not to join.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life here is easy to ignore if it's not part of your college experience, but people who do choose greek life seem to be very satisfied with it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students’ involvement with Greek life doesn’t extend beyond the occasional party. There are no sorority houses, supposedly because of Massachusetts’ ancient “blue laws,” which made it illegal for more than five unrelated women to live together (these laws were actually repealed). All of the fraternities are on Mission Hill, which is about a mile away from campus.

The Greek scene is easy to get to, but when it gets cold in the winter, many students feel that it’s not worth the hike for what could very well be a mediocre party. At the beginning of each semester, there is Rush Week, when students can visit with the different houses and receive bids. Greek life seems to work for those who participate in it, but students can enjoy themselves just fine without it.
