3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Most non-Greeks don't really pay attention to the Greek students, except how the Greek life party a lot.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Im not particularly interested in the fraternities that we have on our campus. However, the Greeks here aren't so bad.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are well respected and seem to have a lot of fun, but it isn't a huge deal if you're not a part of Greek Life.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's strong, there are some very solid chapters here in terms of the guys. They are generally regarded positively by most students, and throw fun parties every weekend. The one unfortunate thing is the lack of greek mansions like big state schools have

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.
