it could be different for sororities but for fraternities, going greek is a joke. for the top few it’s 100% about connections not about how competitive or fitting a potential member you are and for the bottom half legit EVERYONE is let in. philanthropy is nonexistent since nobody cares about charity here and mixers aren’t real ragers. save your dues money to pay for alc and cover at the clubs instead of being elitist
As someone who disaffiliated I'd like to second some parts of the critical reviews and no it's not "ruining it" for those who want real perspectives of the QU greek family. Tbh more people are athletes than they are greek so why are we acting like it's huge at this school? Competition doesn't exist beyond how attractive you are so it's not as picky as real greek schools either. And involvement is clearly not a priority for a majority of them. Yeah dues are lower compared to big greek schools or anywhere that THEY ACTUALLY HAVE HOUSING and actually throw big fun themed parties but if you compare to smaller schools where you're not factoring in those expenses it's pricier than many small chapters and borderline unaffordable for 4 years unless you're rich. Also there's waaay more girls than guys which can make the girls a little crazy. The people that like to over glorify greek life are those in the few top sororities because it consumes their whole identity. They WILL ignore you if you disaffiliate.
it is very competitive when it comes to girls wanting the certain girls they want and the top 3 are fighting over them. don’t ruin greek life for people who want to be in it and love it . dues are more expensive at other schools so u clearly know nothing. also our panhell sucks here so we have to go around it rather other schools they don’t really have a stuck up one plus greek life has changed with all the people dying
My big sister goes to a university in the south and went greek so I was excited to rush too. The process here was really lame and set in like lecture halls LOL. I also didn’t feel any real competition with other pnms.....at the best 3 srats you can tell if they want you before you even open your mouth and you’d like have to mess it up big time from there in your 60 second convos to not move to the next round. I mean I guess if you’re below a 6 or painfully awkward it could seem competitive but if you’re not ugly then it’s nothing to worry about. Once you’re IN it’s also kind of like cliquey and boring. Everyone hates being forced to go to other philanthropies and the frat guys are on average just not attractive at all if we’re being real with ourselves
It is competetive at times when it comes to rush. More so with girls. When it comes to Frat rush its all anout who you know and how your first impression goes.
Regret going Greek. Was stoked to join a top frat but dues are pricey and the guys look like such try hards when they’re not busy only talking to each other instead of meeting the ladies. The srats are better organized than us but both really don’t live up to what being Greek should be. Seriously the guys here hardly do crap except plan lame parties and fundraisers pocket change. The hazing is pretty dumb too like running errands and sober d-ing. My sports team throws WAY better parties than them, the frat bros really build themselves up to be way cooler than they are
anyone giving it these “great” reviews is probably too defensive of their srat to look at our greek system objectively. when I went greek as a frosh it was exciting but the magic quickly died- it’s not necessarily worth it. I got into a “top” level srat where I had photo ops and mixers with top frats (frats are way overhyped tbh). I was pressured to go to some mixers even when I had too much homework or didn’t want to go. my biggest criticism though was that the overall culture and girls I was around brought out the worst in me. inside I began to truly think I was “better” than girls I can’t really say I knew based on their srat/looks/status. in prep for recruitment we’d stalk the social media of girls we liked/thought were hot enough to figure out the best way to get them. in between days sisters would sometimes make fun of certain PNMs as we rated them each round. I stayed in it for years but the inner drama of the sisterhood and the politics of greek life eventually led to my disaffiliation and I’ve had so many epiphanies since
if you are not in greek life you do not understand. every schools greek life is different and unfortunately because we do not have national known houses it is hard but the girls and guys still have houses to live in . the mixers are amazing . people not in greek life are usually upset so they make sure that when people come on here to read they will too. never listen to negative comments because it is clearly people who never rushed or couldnâ€™t get in one because recruitment is hard . there are a lot of girls in sororities and half the school is greek life i donâ€™t think there is much hazing but you never know and everyone in greek life is sexy
Definitely watered down Greek life, kind of wannabe Greek culture. Those in the Greek system like to make excuses for why it is that way but that doesnâ€™t change the fact that it is. Decent amount of philanthropy events but the turnout is an illusion made by other Greek orgs being required to send participants and funds to donate. Generally those who are made to go donâ€™t even want to show up to the lame events and thereâ€™s basically no non-Greeks there, maybe a couple menâ€™s sports teams. No housing (state laws ban them off campus and QU wonâ€™t let them do it on campus) makes the sisterhoods especially less cohesive. Donâ€™t listen to what anyone else says THE PARTIES SUCK. Partially because no housing so where they end up tends to be cramped and hot. Even top srats end up at lame mixers with almost no alcohol save for maybe water beer so they have to hardcore pregame but everyone loves the idea of being invited to exclusive secret mixers so we pretend itâ€™s ok. Youâ€™ll have more fun at the subpar bars/clubs/sports team parties tbh. Guys may undergo minor pledge hazing and only the top sororities haze. Attractiveness is average, wouldnâ€™t say Greeks are overall better looking than te non-Greek athletes which is another big chunk of our D1 school. Top srats recruit heavily based on looks with no diversity (except a few token people of color who have to act rich and white). You have to be super weird to not get a bid from anywhere, not that hard. Srats put each other down all the time to look better and thereâ€™s always srat drama within, it all gets tiring fast. The sisterhoods and brotherhoods are mostly surface level and cliquey but srat families are a perk and at least a lot of people say hi to you on campus and you get to go to showy formals right???
greek life is making its top at quinnipiac social life. a lot more parties are happening specially socials that go on. join greek life and u wont regret that decision, so many girls if u know what i mean
