They are the center of Parties and Social Life
Fun they rule the school
West coast just doesn't know how to do Greek life!
Probably one of the best Greek campuses amongst the UC. UCLA actually has a fraternity row and sorority row. IFC is strict so it could be annoying. The rushing process for guys is pretty laid back and the houses mostly rush guys based off of social abilities (funny, can hold a conversation...etc) and looks. Wealth doesn't play much of a factor here. Never really heard of any crazy hazing incident. The general tier one houses are SAE, SX, Sig Ep, and ZBT. tier 2 houses are SN, LXA, Beta, and Phi Psi. But overall, each house has its fair amount of cool guys and events
Check out all the houses. Don't listen to tiers. Check out high and low tiers each house has an amazing quality to it.
Greek life here is the social scene of the school. Here are the general concensus for ranks
1. SAE, Sig Chi, ZBT
2. Sig Ep, Lambda, Phi Psi, Beta
3. Sig Nu, Pi Kapp, AEPi
4. Sig P, theta Xi, DTD
5. Theta chi, phi delt, tdx
6. Phi Kappa sigma, Delta sigma phi, kappa sigma
1. Kappa, Theta
2. Aphi, DG
3. Chi o, pi phi
5. Kd, adpi,
This website is constantly filled with houses self rating. The general consensus at UCLA is:
Th eta Xi/DTD/Theta Chi
Ea ch house has its own perks and everyone ends up where they belong in the end! However, Greek life at UCLA isn't like the south whatsoever. Very relaxed but at the same time it's a huge presence on campus. Going Greek is the best decision ever!
Top houses are in no order (in terms of social): SAE, Sig Chi, Zbt, Sig Ep, Sig Nu. Getting a bid depends mostly on how "chill" you are (money and connections are not as important). hazing is minimal. Parties are in the houses which range from nice to crap hole. Bar scene isn't big until you are 21. Greeks have a large involvement on campus and run most of the important clubs and organizations (UBS, USAC, ect.). Biggest events include Cabo Spring break, Coachella, and stage coach.
- Parties are good, but they are on Thursdays.
- Hazing is not bad at all. The sigma houses (SAE, SigEp, SigChi), ZBT and Lambda are the more "hardcore" houses but they are also the most relevant ones so it's worth it. BTW if you can't handle it, then don't rush them.
- People are very attractive
- Very cool houses and it's cheaper to live than on campus
