3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't like the greek life on campus because they're pretty annoying... the parties are tough to get into if you aren't in greek life and girls with their letters and reserved tables at dinners are pretty snotty. But hey, you do you.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved and it's not a big deal.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Some Greek organizations are very cliquey and it seems like only a certain type of person gets chosen.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on campus but it isn't the end-all-be-all.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is a lot of (white) sorority and fraternity life on campus. On the other hand, multicultural greek life needs some improving. There is altogether only about 5 fraternities and sororities put together that are multicultural.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students searching for an Animal House or Old School fraternity are looking in the wrong place. Villanova Greek life is treated like any other club or organization on campus. Greek rivalries are nonexistent, and most Greeks have friends in and outside their fraternities and sororities. Greek life offers a great way to meet new people and form close relationships and get involved in philanthropy work. Most spend a couple weekends helping out the underprivileged or raising money for charities, as well as fun events.

However, if it’s the party scene you are interested in, Villanova’s Greek life makes only a small dent. Due to the lack of on-campus Greek housing, most only throw parties on occasion. For popular events, they will rent out a club or bar and charge a small cover. Sororities tend to revolve around formals or cocktail-type events. Many parties off campus are usually broken up by the police within an hour or two, not to mention that none are in walking distance. While Greek life at Villanova offers a great way to meet new people, it is hardly treated any differently than most clubs and organizations, even by the Greeks themselves.
