College Freshman

Greek Life: It depends on how you view Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The frats pretty much suck, besides PhiAD. They're the only guys that will actually treat you like a real person when you go their parties, rather than just try to hook up with you. The sororities can be weird, but the ones that are seen as the not as "popular" sororities are honestly cool. There are stupid stereotypes with each that at times are true with certain people, but overall the stereotypes are stupid. There's a weird mentality with some people that are in greek life that identify with it too much and it can be pretty annoying.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: it makes it so no one outside of greek can party except athletes because they require tickets to get into parties

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am in Greek and I love it. It's the family, not the party scene that makes it great

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm pretty indifferent to Greek life, but they have a pretty big presence on campus and hold a lot of events.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

TCNJ has an active Greek life consisting of 13 sororities, 10 fraternities, and one coed organization. Groups include social fraternities and sororities as well as those pertinent to major. Group activities are year-long, consisting of fundraising, social events, concerts, charity drives, philanthropy and volunteering, game shows, dances, formal events, and collaborative events.

Though there is no particular on-campus housing for Greek life, most organizations have houses off campus in nearby Ewing, Hamilton, and Lawrenceville, and are often cheaper than on-campus housing. Greek life offers something for everyone, and the large number of organizations ensures that interested students will find an organization that they specifically enjoy. Views of Greek life depend on whom you ask; members will report positive experiences, while nonmembers' views may vary. The best way to experience Greek life is to attend rush events and social events hosted by Greek organizations.
