Greek Life: If your'e in it you love it. Greek Life is very cliquey and elitist at UD; however they are only about 20% of the campus so they're not too overbearing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Those who are in Greek organizations often love it and think it is the best part of the entire college experience. Those that don't join often ignore the Greek presence and go about their own lives perfectly content without a Greek membership. This is one organization that tends to live in its own world. There are some Greek members who don't even like to associate with those who are not Greek. Luckily, there are not many who subscribe to this philosophy, and Greeks tend to mix with everyone and separate for Greek events.

Recently there has been a strong effort to stop hazing, binge drinking, and all other harmful activities normally associated with being Greek. This has resulted in the suspension or removal of most of UD's fraternities. Some are starting to return, but it has been pretty quiet without them around. The Greek community resents these actions and longs for the days of wild abandon when binge drinking was just a given.
