Greek Life


{{ error }}
3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Oglethorpe University is pretty active considering most fraternities and sororities were started a few years ago. They have found ways to play a large role in supporting the community on and off campus.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: They're very welcoming and caring to everyone.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The fraternitys aren't all that here. I'm fact it seems as though they don't even exist.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't partake in Greek life. They're fairly nice people. Wasn't one frat thrown off campus for the second drug bust in four years?

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am biased because I am in a sorority, and I love it! The atmosphere is very friendly to me, but I don't know how it is for non-Greeks. It's a small campus, so Greek life here is not like it is at other campuses. There aren't as many events, and the Greeks are not as exclusive. You aren't missing out if you don't do it, but those who are involved enjoy it

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

All Greek organizations play a part in campus life, but theirs is by no means an overbearing role. Greek events are firmly established as a part of the OU community, and many are significant sources of entertainment for students. Actually joining one can be a fun but time-consuming process. Some students see rushing as difficult, but an equal amount have said it was easy.

Fraternities and sororities are fun when it comes to parties, and they're very inviting to all students regardless of whether or not they join. However, there are only a few choices available on campus. The two fraternities and three sororities interact rather well with each other, but they could all benefit from more funding and from the addition of a third social fraternity.
