Love it so far
Greek life this year is way better than last year, new houses are being built and it is growing, it’s also what you make of it if you want to be involved it is not hard at all
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 Panhellenicâ€™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.
