Greek Life: Very time consuming and demanding

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: the Greek people I know have been nothing but help

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life at my school is not very prominent and there is not much pressure to join one. We do not have fraternity or sorority houses on campus either, further diminishing the Greek presence. There is not a different perception between Greek and non-Greek students.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is very active and helpful even more so with such a commuter school.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: My roommate was a member of Kappa Sigma and he always had a lot of fun stories to tell whenever he would come back from his events. Don't get me wrong, greek life isn't that big on campus, but it exists and it is relevant that's for sure. You will see people everywhere wearing their hoodies emblazoned with their fraternity or sorority symbols.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at SFSU should not be labeled as nonexistent, but maybe nonenthusiastic would sum it up better. Sure, the limited number of frats and sororities flood the campus during Welcome Week, just like any other university, but it’s all sorts of different. At San Francisco State, there are no "houses" for these groups—just hazing and other fun social events, without the glitz and glitter. Joining Greek life at SFSU may be rewarding in building friendships and being philanthropic, but students shouldn't expect it to make them the new king or queen of the campus.

The benefits really do outweigh the cons, however; so it is recommended that incoming students check out the Greek organizations to see if one might be a good fit for them. Who can think of a better start other than one that includes many résumé-worthy events, plus all of the "cool kids" in school?
