4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you have time for it, they are a great opportunity.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm apart of a sorority and it's one of the greatest times of my life.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek students are always busy with organizing student events or planning parties for both Greek and non-Greek students. Everyone is involved when the Greeks are involved. There are many options for Greek housing, it takes time to find the right one!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life within WMU has a great philanthropic outlook but tends to push away non-greeks through their cliques and revolving their time around sorority/fraternity events and friends.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I recently just joined Greek Life and I think it is awesome. You meet so many new people and they all go towards a good cause. Plus our Greek Community is super close, you're friends with everyone which always makes for a good time. Especially during times like Greek Week, or even Philanthropy events everyone supports each other.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is the epicenter of social, academic, and philanthropic events on campus. A fraternity or sorority can greatly increase a person's image on campus; however, you don't have to be in a sorority or fraternity to stay active, as there are plenty of other student organizations with which to get involved. Only 2 to 3 percent of undergraduates participates in Greek life. 

Although Greek life on campus is average, the Greek organizations are all well-known throughout campus, by both the University and the students. Greeks pair up with the University, and put on events and promote positive changes for the school and for society. Greeks are well-rounded individuals committed to improving themselves as well as the University.
