3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Some fraternities/sororities have bad reputations. Rush is intimidating to some students. Still seems like the "typical" greek environment - Gorgeous, rich kids, partying their way through college.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you can get through the hellish process that is sorority recruitment (like seriously it sucks), the actually sorority part is really fun. The frats are a lot easier.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most of the Greeks have housing in a certain section on campus. They all usually hang with each other.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: All of the fraternity members I've met are down to earth and cool, but some sororities are really stuck up. It is much more difficult to get into a sorority party than a fraternity party. The Greek houses are all pretty new, I think the oldest one was built in 2000.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Myself falling into the non-Greek category I think Greek Life does a lot for the community be it social, programs they're involved in, and the events and philanthropies they put on. The only drawback I necessarily have is that for some reason "Greek Week" or anything truly Greek related is segregated. None of the Black Fraternities or Sororities are located on campus. There is only one Multicultural Fraternity as well as only one Multicultural Sorority. I think that all Fraternities and Sororities should be equally presented during Greek Week.

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.
