Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, most cadets have a social void. There are no fraternities or sororities on campus. The closest thing to either one of these is the Firstie Club, a club on post for upperclass cadets. The Firstie Club is actually more of a sports bar than anything else; it is definitely not a club in the conventional sense. While a lot of the cadets actually abstain from drinking, there are definitely those cadets that are very dissatisfied with the limited opportunities to go out and have fun. According to some of the cynical ones, only West Point knows how to make drinking not fun.

Bottom line—there is no Greek life at West Point. If that is your scene, don't go to the Academy because it is literally nonexistent. If you can settle for the feeling of brotherhood and the experience of being part of a larger entity without the Greek title and traditions, then you will do fine. But otherwise, stay away. Stay far, far away.
