Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no Greek system at Seattle Pacific. However, dorm life has a similar culture. SPU asks every student to live in the on-campus dormitories for at least the first two years. There are four dorms, each with their own reputation and character. Then, within those dorms, floors are separated by sex, and each floor serves as its own community with distinct traditions and flavors. The brotherhood/sisterhood of each floor functions as a fraternity or sorority would. For example, the men of 6th West Ashton are called "the Orangemen" because they have special seats at every home basketball game where they lead cheers and are largely responsible for influencing the enthusiasm of other SPU fans. This is a role they take very seriously, complete with orange convict uniforms, wigs, paint, etc.

Also, there are mixers and competitions and events just like in Greek life. Some of the annual events are the Ashton Cup, Hill Hall's Decade Skate, Emerson Film Festival, 6th Hill Men's Fashion Show, Emerson Coffee House, and the Experience Moyer Project. Raids are a common occurrence. This is where, just before floor hours, a floor of the other gender runs through the hall yelling and banging on every surface. The raiding floor always has a fun activity planned where everyone can socialize and get to know one another.
