Okay so quinnipiac is not a school you go to for greek life, but the hate below seems like too much. It is still something worth doing. Dues are not that expensive because there are no chapter houses or anything. It is not "paying for friends", it is just a great way to meet people. If your not in a frat, then likely the only partying you can do is bars clubs which good, but you miss out on wed, fri, and dartys. You do not need to be in a sorority, but if your in one you have a sisterhood, social/events, and you meet so many more people. Everyone I meet and am closest to is in greek life, and its not because they are in greek life, but many people who I have great times with are in it. That being said, this school isn't anything crazy and none of the parties are great or anything, but if you want the best college experience then you should rush.
like flushing money down the drain. if you’re trying to pay for friends this isn’t even the best way. all the srats are made up of smaller cliques and the frats are cringey try hards. they have too many chapters to be competitive and it’s not popular enough for most chapters to fill. for example: Tri Delt will give any girl a bid and still not make quota. go somewhere else if you want to be Greek because this school is Greek only in name.
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
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
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???
