2 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek community doesn't do much for the school in any way other than allowing students to find friends in a social group setting.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life helps build leaders. It helped me.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Being a part of Greek life isn't necessarily important but the fraternities and sororities are a major help to the community and hold members to a level of academic excellence. Greek life here is about showing you're an aid to society, not that you just can throw a great party.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Unlike some schools, the Greek life participants at SU aren't vapid or shallow. They are genuinely nice people, with real thoughts and opinions. They are very service oriented, and have high academic standards. They are very involved with the campus community, and actively engage with non-Greek students.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not apart of Greek life so I'm impartial.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are certainly a lot of choices for going Greek at Salisbury University. However, their presence is not as palpable as reflected in the amount of organizations present on campus. The most palpable show of Greek pride occurs during the rush period at the beginning of the semester, when all frats and sororities are out in full force for at least two weeks. Outside of this period, it is only during certain periods of the semester, such as Homecoming, that the Greeks resurface.

In addition to a lacking presence, there are no formal frat or sorority houses. The organizations are headquartered in the Student Activities Center. However, the organizations do have de facto headquarters, primarily at member homes. It is at these homes that many parties are held and, in addition, the organizations hold formal socials a few times a year for their members and guests.
