2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm glad there's not Greek life but varsity sports sort of take on the role of Greek life. Many varsity athletes are snobby and look down on "nonners" saying you have no social life if you're not part of a sport.

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Williams. The college banned fraternities in the 60's. However, the sports teams, particularly popular men's sports teams like football, baseball, and hockey have filled the social void that the fraternities left.

Greek Life: No Greek Scene – Plain and Simple: Williams does not have a Greek scene. It probably would further separate the campus if it did exist though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Williams has no Greek life, and most students feel good about this. They find that a fraternity is not the kind of structure they need in order to have a fulfilling college life. Few Williams students say they have a desire to bond with other students under the authority of a fraternity.

The rumors about a secret fraternity remain a mystery. The idea that sports teams substitute fraternities on campus is also highly debatable, but somewhat confirmed by the fact that teams are often able to live in the same dorm.
