I am involved in greek life. I would encourage anyone to go through. I have really grown into myself and learned a lot about who I am thanks to my organization. Greek life encourages diplomacy, understanding and acceptance. This experience can really help you prepare for the real world. Greeks are not really a concern of non-greeks, we coexist well! The housing is not ideal, there is a greek village on the north-west portion of campus. Each organization has two separate apartments with 4 private occupancy rooms in each. This area is very social and allows you to meet other greeks and non-greeks!

I love wingate. It is my home away from home. I transferred here after an awful first year at another college. I came to campus and was welcomed by orientation leaders and students from organizations on campus. They moved me in and helped me get settled. The welcome week events are great to help you get to know people on campus. Wingate really values this initial experience because they know it will make/break your Wingate experience. The food is mediocre, but you can move into an on campus apartment with kitchens as an upperclassmen! I would choose Wingate again because my professors are amazing and caring, it's easy to be involved, and I have met some of my very best friends here.

The athletic centers at Wingate are awesome! There are so many basketball courts for guys to play on. The Jefferson pool and volleyball court are well-used. The Klondike is a great place to eat and hang out and the Grab n' Go is very convenient. The DPC is a great place to hang out and get work done because it has a place to work-out, the bookstore, pool table, ping-pong table, and t.v.s. Wingate has great programs and clubs to help students get involved within the school and in the community.
