2 College Junior

Greek Life: If you rush as a female sophomore you can pretty much count out any of the good houses. If one person says something bad about you, you are blackballed

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek system is very social. It takes a lot to actually get accepted into a sorority and the dues are ridiculous. The houses that the sorority girls live in are bigger than the house that I grew up in, and really lavish.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are many different ones. THere are some who have a "party" reputation and some who are based more on degrees or studies. Chi Phi is more of a "science-based" frat that doesn't have as dramatic of a pledging routine and is a smaller chapter. They do not require you to live in their frat house and they encourage your studies as well as community service.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is not much Greek life here on campus, and many non-Greeks look down on Greek students, claiming they lack originality and only party and don't make good grades. I know nothing about Greek housing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
