UK greek life has been through some rough patches in recent years, but has pushed through due to the involvement of every chapter on campus, which Panhellenic and IFC never recognize. the sooner IFC stops bending over to Panhellenic’s outragous rules, the sooner greek life will flourish even more than it is now
There are more frats than sororities but the frat chapters are smaller. Frats do some hazing but sorties have very little. Generally, theres a lot more hot sorority girls than hot frat guys. People in greek life are EXTREMELY involved in other organizations all around campus. UK needs to face the fact that the best & most valuable students on this campus are in greek life. The university doesn't show its greek life the respect it deserves.
There is a place for everyone here. And all of the chapters have plans to renovate their house if they haven't already. Rushing here is stressful but 100% worth it
Being an SEC school UK holds it's own when it comes to Greek life. Houses are getting renovated every year and chapters are beginning to colonize and grow in Lexington. Unfortunately the bad blood brought on by this "progressive Panhellenic" is harming the Greek system as a whole. Greek life is rooted in tradition therefore it should be KEPT a tradition. Stop looking to screw chapters over by kicking them off and putting them on probation and start looking into how to make the campus safer (wet campus=parties in frat houses=100000x SAFER BECAUSE there are no pledge drivers packing girls into cars to drive to random off campus party houses)
I am so disappointed in this school's greek life. Coming from the south, I figured that even if this is one of the northernmost states that it would still have decent greek life. But it is horrible. Low involvement apart from one big event (Greek Sing) - all the other "involvement" the groups participate in are laughable. The girls are all catty and competitive; nearly every sorority I've encountered is obsessed with their image and "rank" (looking at this school's discussion page will prove that). There are plenty of trashy girls who love to go and make fools of themselves on the weekend though (some in their letters even - SHAMEFUL).
I gave this school a chance, but it was only two years of sorority before I could not take any more. If you're on the fence, don't bother.
panhellenic is singlehandedly ruining all greek like at UK. making ridiculous rules and changes that do nothing but hinder the experience of actives. i feel bad for PNMs coming here in the hopes of experiencing SEC greek life cuz it’s a joke here. don’t waste your time or money trying to deal with panhellenics absurd rules.
UK Greek life is hanging on for dear life right now and is Swiftly headed toward being a complete JOKE.
Panhellenic is screwing every sorority over with new recruitment rules and ways to doing things.
The party scene is hella lit, but basically any rando girl can get into the parties (no sorority needed). All the date parties suck ass and has egregious rules against how you can even f*cking travel to or leave them.
Frats have a nice mix with how many there are, but every sorority is either desperate as hell or uptight/b*tchy narcissists.
Lots of frat hazing (varies by frat obv), but none for the girls.
Also there's not a lot of diversity in the Greek life here
People get involved on campus and stuff like volunteering for big events like the Dance Blue stuff and Greek Sing but other than that..... Not a lot. If you want to do other stuff on campus like sports or a job or even taking an extra class you probably won't even have time for Greek life here
Amazing greek life at UK
GOOD ASS GREEK LIFE
