Greek life on campus is more or less average. Members are very welcoming to prospective Greeks and even people who have no interest in joining. Greeks realize that their lifestyle is not for everyone, but they don’t make students feel like something is wrong with them if it isn’t their style. With nationally accredited fraternities and sororities, the tradition of Greek pride and respect is prominently upheld at Rowan. While many fraternities and sororities are chartered by the University, many are not recognized, but that doesn't stop them from throwing parties and social events. For students who are considering joining a sorority or fraternity, the good news is that there is something for everyone. Rowan Greek life is like a buffet—there is almost every frat and sorority known to man here, including a large number of honor societies and music groups.
Greek life on campus is best known for being enthusiastic about its events and programs. Fortunately, hazing has stopped. Students will still need to pledge to get in, but hazing is strictly prohibited on Rowan’s campus, as it is at most colleges. Fraternities and sororities will lose their charter if allegations of hazing turn out to be true. Overall, Greeks, as well as non-Greeks, enjoy a peaceful coexistence on Rowan’s campus.
