Greek Life: I couldn't care less about the Greek life at UBC. Compared to Universities in the United States - it's a joke.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Greek life in UBC is what a student makes of it. Students are aware that Greek life exists, but fraternities and sororities certainly do not dominate the campus. The Greek Village is located in a section of the campus where most Greek activity resides. Most non-Greek students know the fraternities and sororities for their occasional parties, usually thrown in their houses and sometimes in outside venues. Though there are a number of Greek-organized community events and Greek teams can often be seen in REC activities, without further investigation, one can be totally oblivious to Greek activity. Most fraternities and sororities have their own houses within the Greek Village, which provide housing for many of their active members at lower rates compared to other housing around campus.
