5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek Life on Campus is top-tier as a member of a fraternity it has shaped me. Helped me to have great friends as well.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is a very big deal at UA so if you are interested in going greek, alabama has plenty of opportunities and numerous fraternities/sororities to choose from. The greek life is very active.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am in one of the top sororities in the nation, Alpha Phi. Greek life at Alabama is the only way to go.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are other great options outside of Greek Life, but not all people fit the "Greek" stereotype so give it a chance.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you're interested in Greek life UA is the place for you. I am not a member of a fraternity by choice but I have many friends that are members of fraternities or sororities. The Greek houses at UA are unmatched.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greeks are widely known on campus. They are easy to point out since they have a certain look to them-preppy. Greeks come to class wearing lettered T-shirts and their cars have stickers revealing which Greek organization they are a part of. The fraternity houses are always throwing parties, and many independent students attend. The stereotype is rich, stuck up, and that they don't care to be your friend unless you too are a part of the Greek system. There are plenty that chose not to go Greek, but they say they still have good friends that are. Greek students take pride in their system and enjoy the social benefits. However, being Greek is not the only way to have fun. Independent students say they have just as much fun.

During Student Government (SGA) and Homecoming Queen elections, independent and Greek students battle out to see who controls the campus. Some believe that the Greeks try to own the school by only electing other Greeks into SGA. Independents encourage everyone to vote and stop the Greeks from winning. This is usually the only time the Greeks and independents overall disagree. Greek or not, this does not stop students from being friends with each other. Being Greek is not for everyone.
