3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not part of the greek life, but it is a way of life here for those that choose it. Some fraternities and sororities are very involved in the community while others are just centered on socializing. They don't really create much of a social atmosphere and no one really cares if a person is greek or not.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. They care a lot about their academics and love to give back to the community.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Considering the religious climate of Salt Lake, the Greek community has less support and growth than many other schools. While the houses are small, however, the Greek community is close-knit and quite safe in comparison to other schools.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No idea about greek life

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty small, but a fairly big part of school for those who live on or near campus. They throw good parties but you either have to be greek or have greek friends to be welcomed into these. Some of the frat houses look a bit run down from partying too hard. For guys, getting into a frat is pretty easy if you aren't overweight or otherwise uncool. They have frats for smart people as well. Getting into a sorority is a little more difficult as many people rush. There are 9 different houses though and again, if you are a decently good looking girl you will most likely find a place if your personality clicks with the sorority.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Less than five percent of the University population belongs to the Greek system, and although Greek leadership makes regular, concerted efforts to recruit, there is little interest in the lifestyle. This is perhaps symptomatic of the West, where the Greek tradition is regionally much weaker than it is on the East Coast. While Greeks have had strong ties to student government, and it’s been generally held that “to win you must have the Greek vote,” those ties have grown weaker every year. By and large, the majority of students looks down on Greeks (as opposed to other schools, where it’s the other way around), but the Greeks have a reasonably good relationship with the University administration.

Did You Know?
Some years ago, one of the fraternities on campus, Kappa Sigma, threw a party where police arrested more than 50 people for underage drinking violations. This fraternity had a history of bending (or outright breaking) both University policy and the law. The dean of students, the Interfraternity Council president, and others called for blood, and this fraternity lost its charter. In the fall of 2005, however, the chapter was reinstated and recolonized.
