Greek Life: Some groups are known for better things than others.

Greek Life: There are multiple Greek houses on/near campus.

Greek Life: overall the gendered elitist system of fraternities and sororities is antiquated

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life, like sports, is present at Tufts but not a reason to attend. They are pretty low-key and care more about their community than their national affiliations. They throw the parties and have a presence on campus, but there is no pressure or judgement regardless of whether or not you rush.

Greek Life: Greek life is very important to a number of people in college. It not only plays a big hand for them in creating the full college experience, but sororities and fraternities can also offer their members support and a good resource for making connections towards their future careers. For me, I don't have much of an interest in them.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The nice thing about the Greek system at Tufts is that they are always looking for new members, so almost all students get to sample what the system is like through open parties and other events. The pressure to join isn’t strong, and if you choose not to, you won’t be excluded. If you decide that Greek life is not your thing, don’t fear. It doesn’t dominate the social scene, and there are plenty of other options.

Recently, the administration has been cracking down on the Greek system in an attempt to add more unity, charity efforts, and safety to the system. Complaints about the administration trying to eliminate the Greek system are commonplace on campus. However, in the face of adversity, the community appears to be more unified than ever. But, without a doubt, there will be major changes in the Greek system in upcoming years, some for better, others for worse.
