Greek Life: Unfortunately the greek community at Rowan is small, but it's growing. SDT sorority just came to campus which gives future rowan girls a new outlet for greek life. Sorority rankings go as this AEPhi/SDT are top tier, DPhiE is middle tier, and ASA/Theta are bottom tier, but regardless of tier everyone is still interwoven. Tier is based primarily on looks for sororities. Fraternities are different. FIJI/Pike/SigmaPi/TKE are top tier, DKE/AXP/SAE are middle tier, TDP/TEP/PhiPsi are bottom tier. In all honesty fraternity tier is based on their house. DKE is the only fraternity to own their chapter house, but they are not affiliated with the school. FIJI has one of the best houses as does TKE, but TKE lost their house to SAE since frats/sororities have to rent their houses.

Greek Life: I do not know very much about Greek life, but I have heard that it is not very difficult to get into. People that are not into Greek life are usually not impressed by the Greek students. Most of the fraternities have one or two run-down houses that they rent, and only a few of them live there. The rest live in on-campus housing.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally do not like Greek life. For the most part, they're really annoying. I had a friend who joined a sorority and it took over her entire life - all she could talk about was Greek life this and Greek life that.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I'm in grad school. I'm not much a part of the greek life.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am part of the non-Greek life and plan on staying that way. I feel like it is pointless to buy friends that are not going to have your back the way true friends will. That being said I understand why other people would buy friends that have no friends on campus which, to me, seems to be the majority of people that join Greek life.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
