Greek Life: I am currently apart of the 2015 Recruitment for rushing for a sorority. So far I am enjoying every minute of it. It's really amazing and inspiring with that some of the girls have to say.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Whether it is some fraternity’s toga party or a sorority’s semi-formal, joining Greek life at Towson can be a lot of fun. The students who are involved in Greek life claim that it has a highly visible role on campus, and many students involved say they cannot imagine having a good college experience at TU without joining a sorority or a fraternity.

But, joining a sorority or fraternity at Towson can be awfully time consuming, since meetings and events are held almost every week, or at least every other. As a result, many who are involved in Greek life may say that it plays a big role on campus because they are constantly around it. As a student in Towson, you are bound to come across Greeks wearing their letters just about every day, but a good majority of students choose not to join and are content with their decisions. Furthermore, those who are not involved in Greek life do not think it dominates the social scene at all.
