Greek life doesn’t even matter at Pitt. It is such a small percentage of the entire population. It’s not very fun unless ur in a top organization (which barely means anything cause greek life here is so irrelevant) and even so ur just seeing the same people over and over. I would suggest joining a better and more meaningful club or sport or something. Don’t waste your money like I did.
Greek life could be better but the boys don't wanna try and the girls are lazy
Greek life makes this large university feel a lot smaller. If you’re looking for a place to make friends and have a good time joining greek life is the move. However the university is very strict with greek organizations and it is very easy for them to get out on suspension.
It is def small at this school. almost seems like it's at the risk of being fazed out
I love Greek life because it helped me find my people in what could otherwise be a big, impersonal school. Greek life is big for those of us who are a part of it but those who aren’t don’t pay much attention- which is fine of course! The one thing I really wish was better at Pitt was the Greek housing. The frat houses on the Hill are basically dormitories while the sororities generally live in a big apartment (although they are for the most part beautifully decorated). I attend medical school at an SEC school with a beautiful Greek row. Not gonna lie, but when I visited that my sorority’s chapter house, I had a little bit of house envy! I loved my time as. Pitt Greek but if you particularly really want that big Greek experience, another school light be a better fit.
Very minor part of life at pitt
Most people don’t really know what sororities are even on campus
Pitt has about a 10% undergraduate percentage. Joining greek life at Pitt will definitely enhance your social life, but deciding not to join will definitely not leave you feeling left out. There are a variety of fraternities and sororities to choose from and most people who look into greek life will be able to find the right one for them. You definitely see a lot of pride around campus when it comes to greek life, but it is not overwhelming by any means. I think the thing that hurts Pitt's greek scene the most is the lack of housing and the quality of it. If Pitt had a legit frat row instead of the houses on the hill, I believe the greek experience here would be 10x better. In other words, the students here are interested enough in greek life but the university/oakland neighborhood doesn't really give the students the means for a top notch greek experience.
Small, but fun.
It's not that important here. If it works for you as an individual, great, if not, whatever. I benefited from being in Greek Life but I know others, even from my own house, who enjoyed it but didn't get much out of it. A select few Greeks are obsessed with tiers but it really doesn't matter to anyone else.
