4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Great life is a huge part of campus. Not nesissary but encouraged to get into if you're not already in other clubs.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek town at all and it hasn't effected my experience.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No preference. I know there is a lot of sororities and fraternities and they do several things off and on campus, but I am not interested in anything they do. They have always seemed like a good way to get yourself in trouble for me.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I have been involved in Greek life and it has been a very rewarding experience. In addition to providing community service to our local community, we raise funds for charities such as St. Judes's Hospital.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are a huge role on campus- there are 30+ greek houses. Which is really great if you want to join and no big deal if you don't. Most people will recommend it due to the high social scene, community service and leadership opportunities- but there is plenty of that available outside Greek Life.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is very big on the Mizzou campus, especially during football season and Homecoming. They hold events just about every month, and members are required to attend meetings every week. This can be very overwhelming for incoming freshmen. Frats are a little more relaxed with their rules, whereas sororities are very particular about everyone following the rules. The members usually live in the dorms the first semester and then move in to the house after they have been accepted into the frat/sorority. 

Many people do not particularly like sororities and frats because the people in them act rude and sometimes won't associate with people who aren't in their frat/sorority or in a frat/sorority in general.
