3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is not a huge scene on our campus, but they are tight knit smaller communities within our large school. Several of them are cultural sororities, focusing more on shared culture than on typical greek life topics

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am attending online so I am not sure that it is even possible for sorority.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: greek life is really on the low key

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: My sister is in a sorority and from what I've seen, Greek life is a big part of Northeastern life. They are involved, actively try to help out in the community, and always encourage new people to try Greek life out.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It seems like a fun organization that does good things, but not super important to the social scene.

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“blue laws,” which made it illegal for more than five unrelated women to live together (these laws were actually repealed).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.
