3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not affiliated with Greek life, but I know they are always doing something on campus to benefit their charities

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not near the caliber of UA or Auburn but still very good.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I didn't join a sorority until my sophomore year. I was one of those that looked down on Greeks as shallow, party animals-wasting their time and money. Then I met a lot of people that I NEVER would have associated with Greek life and realized not all sororities and fraternities were like that, I just needed to find the one that was the right fit for me. That said, Greek life at UAB is not a big deal-not like it is at Alabama or Auburn. There is no pressure to join one, people don't care if you're in one or not. Fun fact: there are no Sorority houses at UAB because 6 or more women living together in a house in the city of Birmingham is considered a brothel. Seriously.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If I planned on joining a fraternity in college, I would have gone to school somewhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The campus is so full and diverse it is hard to even tell who is a greek
