4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Unifying the students to help the community.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life so I don't know much about it. But for the people that do attend they do say it's a great part and recommend it.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Great Greek Life at this school, involved but not overpowering. A good number of people genuinely want what's best out of Greek Life, not solely parties.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The culture of Greek Life is fine. It can sometimes be difficult because the members of the chapter will generally pick their friends over someone that is more qualified, or worthy.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life at U of L is, in a word, small. The campus has been mostly commuters for so long that Greek life never grew as popular and powerful as it is at most Southern universities. However, the fraternities and sororities here are very involved and visible on campus. Greeks are by no means exclusive and collaborate with other organizations like SAB and PEACC to put on events and bring speakers to campus. Individual Greeks are also usually very involved with these organizations, and you’ll hear the same names everywhere. The sororities and fraternities get along well with one another, and while there is some competition, both friendly and unfriendly, members usually abide by the motto “no matter the letter, we’re all Greek together.” Intramural participants are mostly Greek, and attendance at games is usually huge; when not competing on the field, Greeks compete to raise money for philanthropy, but everyone comes out to support everyone else’s community service events.

Overall, Greek life at U of L is open and involved on campus. Most independents get along with Greeks, and though there are some exceptions, the Greek community gets along with each other. Greek life is another dimension of the social scene at U of L, but by no means is it necessary to be Greek to have a social life. Within Greek life, it’s what individual members make of it—the organization can either connect you with others on campus and beyond or be a smaller community within the larger community of the University.
