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.
