3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally do not know exactly what the greek life is like at Texas State. I am at the Round Rock campus, so I am not direvtly involved. Although I would not be in a sorority, I know many people who enjoy the camaraderie.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Many people are in Greek life. The quad is always full of booths trying to get people to participate in things or donate money for charities.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I am in a sorority, so Greek life is very close to my heart. Greek life at Texas State is amazing, there is a lot of diverse chapters that do a lot of wonderful things. There are tons of philanthropy events every year, the sororities and the fraternities do a lot of events together, and there is a lot of support for other Greeks events. Greeks life is not just hanging out with Greeks, the chapters here have taken great steps to include other organizations in Greek events. Recruitment is a lot more low key then other recruitment at bigger Texas Schools as well.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am in a Fraternity on campus its a gender inclusive honors fraternity known as Phi Sigma Pi, its amazing, fun, and its like a second family.

I also had the opportunity to try out for the sororities on campus and found that it wasn't my fit.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at Texas State is very active and very positive. The fraternities and sororities work hard to make a positive impact on Texas State and the San Marcos community.

You will see Greek members hanging out in the quad (centerish part of campus) doing fundraisers every day. Joining a fraternity or sorority is an excellent way to really get involved with your campus and the surrounding community. It's also a great way to make some close friends, as well as network with various employers you may be helping raise funds for.
