5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks do a lot for the community. There is no hazing on campus.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a great opportunity to make friends and feel accepted. I plan to go through recruitment next school year.

3 College Student

Greek Life: There are several frat houses. They treat me as anybody else. I think they have a positive effect on the school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Week can be obnoxious but besides that, the Greek and non-Greek students co-exist fine. Everyone participates in events and supports fellow students.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I just joined a fraternity and it is great. We have 4 chapters on campus, PKT, ATO, SAE AND EN (sigma nu) all of which are awesome, each one has its own take and characteristics. No one will judge you different if you dont join Greek life. All of the brothers really care about you and the community.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students who are involved in Greek life at Mount Union say it's one of the best things about their college experience. Fraternities and sororities plan plenty of social events and parties, but at Mount, they are also known for their academics, leadership on campus, and philanthropic work. Greeks have a definite presence on campus and nearly one-fifth of the student body belongs to a Greek organization. Joining is easy—just sign up for recruitment with the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership and go through the process. Once you're in one of the four fraternities or four sororities, you'll belong to one of the most thriving parts of Mount Union campus life. Greeks are involved in just about everything on campus, from the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils to athletics to Student Senate and much more.

Greeks and non-Greeks have a mixed relationship across campus. Typically, no one will treat you differently if you do or don't go Greek, but there is some tension over the issue. Some non-Greeks believe that the fraternities and sororities are only as good as the parties they throw, while others are completely indifferent to Greeks or see them as clique-ish. However, many non-Greeks do look favorably upon the chapters, and a good number attends the Greek events and parties that are open to the campus community.
