4 College Freshman

Greek Life: A consistent ambience of friendship and cultural integration.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of campus life outside of studies; however, it is not necessary at all to be involved in.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life has definitely caused trouble for Tulane and several students I've personally met look down upon some of the Greek traditions. For example, just a couple of months ago, a fraternity made a very offensive statement by building a wall of sandbags outside their house to showcase their pro-Trump take. It got so out of hand that the football team had to go over there and take down the wall themselves.

Greek Life: Greek life negatively affects the social atmosphere on campus. It is not overwhelming, but provides a nonetheless noticeable pressure for students to shirk their work and attend parties. What is perhaps worse is that Tulane hires staff to clean up after the fraternities throw parties, refusing to hold these students accountable for their actions.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty prominent on campus, but if you're not part of Greek life, there are plenty of other options to get involved on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If you go Greek, it will likely be a dominant part of your college life, but if you decide that it isn’t your thing, the Greek scene won’t affect you at all. There is the option of going to frat and sorority parties during the fall semester, and the opportunity to rush and pledge in the spring semester. Other than being bombarded with people wearing Greek T-shirts, flip-flops, pins, etc., there is not much Greek on the Tulane campus.

People who are in fraternities and sororities are very loyal to their organization and make it a priority right up there with school work. You rarely ever hear of someone hating the Greek system, and few leave fraternities/sororities once they’ve joined. Greek life is a great way to make new friends, boyfriends and girlfriends, and connections for the future. Greek students tend to be fiercely loyal to their organizations and to their pledge groups, and many of these loyalties extend beyond the college years.

At Tulane, you won’t feel pressured to join one of these organizations, and your social life isn’t going to suffer if you choose to avoid pledging. Being in a sport or a club can provide almost the same network as any sorority or fraternity and can be just as fun.
