4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at my college is really great. They do nice fundraisers throughout the year. The Greeks take part in every activity on campus. They have their own event called "Song Fest" and all the sororities and fraternities take part in it, it is almost like a dance competition. The fraternities and sororities have their own floor housing.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We are a small school so Greek life is small as well. People join and it's popular but it's not the most important. They sororities seem cliquey and I wouldn't join because I'm not into that. It seems more important than it is.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: You notice greek life but nothing will change if you are not a part of it

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Unfortunately, Wagner does not have some type of housing for Greek students. Yet, there are still many students that take part of Greek life and love it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We have about 5 sororities and 5 frats... Not too bad, but honestly most people join to find their little niche at Wagner, but no one looks at you different if your niche is in the theatre department or the leadership program you are in, rather then a frat or sorority.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Greek organizations here are very active on campus, and they hold fundraisers for charities on a regular basis. Each frat and sorority has its own floor in Towers, one of the upperclassman dorms. Each floor also has a lounge, and each organization paints its floor with its colors. The social Greek organizations are under the umbrella of the nationwide Panhellenic Council (sororities) and Inter-Fraternal Council (frats), so addition to having to abide by Wagner's rules, each organization has to follow the national groups' rules, as well.

About 20 percent of the students here are in a Greek organization, but because Wagner is such a small school, students who are Greek hang out with people who aren't affiliated with an organization. The Greeks also throw regular parties, and if you're going to a party in Towers, chances are that a frat or sorority is hosting it. It's not a lifestyle for everyone, but if you're interested in joining Greek life, you can make a lot of lasting friendships.
