4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life has had a huge impact on many lives on campus, and Greeks really know how to enjoy life and they also know how to help the community when it is needed. Non-Greeks and Greeks have had no problems with being friends, etc.

Greek Life: Greek life at OU is an interesting thing. I myself went through sorority recruitment and was extremely let down. The selections aren't based off of how involved you are in the community and your desire to give back, it is all superficial and if you aren't beautiful and petite then the likelihood of you getting a bid is slim to none,

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't really matter much enough to me to give a fair opinion. I know a lot of Greeks and non-Greeks and I feel everyone gets treated the same.

Greek Life: I'm considering joining a fraternity for the campus social life as well as for the life member benefits.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I joined Greek life at the University of Oklahoma my freshman year. I was a little skeptical about it at first but as it went on i think it was one of the best decisions I made. In just this past year I have met lifelong best friends and sisters that I know I can count on whenever. However, I will say Greek life is a huge part of OU but I feel that it should not be. I want the non-Greeks to feel just as important and I don't think they do. Greek life is very stereotypical and I hate that.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
It is commonly said among OU students that one must go Greek to have a social life on campus. While absolutely untrue, this statement gives an idea of the importance of sororities and fraternities. They are involved with every organization on campus, and more than 4,500 students are currently active members. For many, these organizations provide guidance throughout their careers at OU, and their alumni networks can prove beneficial when entering the workforce. Most important, however, are the friendships that are created within these organizations. They help bring together students with the same goals, interests, and attitudes, which in turn can help students smooth over the transition from high school to college, especially when they do not know any other students on campus. Non-Greek students generally view Greeks with benign contempt. They see the Greek students as obnoxious, cliquey partiers. There are many exceptions, however, and it is very common for Greeks to be close friends with non-Greeks.
