Many students, Greek and non-Greek alike, make a weekly habit of visiting frat houses for some good old-fashioned college fun. On big party weekends, like Spring Fling, there could be over 20 parties to choose from in one night. The number of fraternities, the individual personality of each one, and the frequency with which parties occur gives Penn students a choice of gatherings including everything, from loud and exciting, to small and personal.
Although becoming involved in the Greek system at Penn can be a rewarding and memorable experience, it rarely monopolizes the sisters' and brothers' social lives. At Penn, members of fraternities and sororities have friends outside of their organization, and many of them (more-so in sororities) do not live in the house. Subsequently, these students remain well-rounded and do not isolate themselves from the rest of campus, making the Greek system something everyone can benefit from whether they choose to become affiliated with it or not.
