3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't something that has interested me in college, but they are pretty good here. I enjoy going to their events and gatherings, but I also like that they don't force Greek Life on you here and even if you aren't Greek you aren't considered lower on the social status.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority but I have plenty of friends in them. I love the way that they allow non-Greeks to be involved with the events that go on.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks have a large impact and presence on campus and in the community.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't hear much about Greek Life, but I assume it's great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Once again, I'm not involved in Greek life. It really depends on the fraternity or sorority as to whether they're nice or involved or not.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Greek organizations at Troy University are very active on campus. Greek Week is an annual event in spring dedicated to the fraternities and sororities on campus—they work on a community service project, conduct a forum, and host several activities ranging from cookouts to block parties.

In order to become a member of any sorority or fraternity, there are a few requirements. First, you must have a minimum 2.5 GPA, and some require a fee. Most Greek organizations also require participation in other on-campus service organizations, and some even require a study hall during the week to ensure its members are successful in the classroom. Overall, Greek life at Troy is a great way to get involved on campus. You also can meet people from different schools and chapters, which can help later with job networking or references. But, although it has many benefits, Greek life is not for everyone. The fees can get to be very expensive, and the requirements of the organization along with being a full-time student can be too much for many to handle.
