Greek Life

2 College Student

Greek Life: We do not have a greek life program.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: It's non existent, but there are small clubs or organizations that claim to be similar to fraternities. It's really not a thing at the Claremont colleges. I don't mind it but it would be nice to have them. I can understand the motive of not having them, but at the same time it's weird being the only school without one.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are fraternities, sororities, and frarorities(gender neutral). They all live in their own dorms; they don't have any special housing, but they do throw parties on campus. There is a Latina sorority and a Latino fraternity(the people in them are fun and cool).

Greek Life: We technically do not have Greek Life, but there is a Kappa Gamma group that is a fratority that hosts events sometimes. If you want Greek Life, don't come here.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no official Greek life at the Claremont Colleges. Because of the small campus sizes and low number of students, Greek life would only promote unnecessary segregation among students. Students at Pitzer can attend parties at any of the other campuses (except for the few parties that are school-exclusive), so there is really no need for a Greek life to enhance the social aspects of the school.

There is some "underground" Greek life, but these one or two organizations in no way define the social scene. Students at Pitzer do not mind that there is no Greek life; actually, a great number of students prefer that there is no Greek life, and some apply to Pitzer specifically for that reason.
