Greek life definitely doesn’t dominate the social scene, but it is very active and visible on campus. There are dozens of Greek organizations on campus, giving interested students lots of options. You have to remember that A&M is a huge campus, so in order to get to know people, it’s recommended to join an organization or club—but whether it’s a Greek organization is up to you.
Greek life is usually good for your social life with its abundance of crush parties and mixers every weekend that are full of beautiful people. In the past, sororities and fraternities have been small and looked down upon by some, but they are becoming increasingly more accepted by the general student body. If you are interested in joining a Greek organization, just make sure that you understand all that goes along with it—the dues, the time commitment, and the occasional stereotypes. Here’s some advice: Check them all out and get to know the people in the organization before you make any kind of long-term commitment. Also, don’t feel any pressure to join a frat or sorority. Students who are not involved in the Greek scene can still have active social lives.
