Sad that the Greek system at MSU is a shadow of what it was 20-30 years ago. The best houses of the 80’s & 90’s are gone and the ones that remain can’t compare to the experiences we alum enjoyed. It’s unfortunate what’s happened but that’s the trend across the country.
Greek life at MSU is a ton of fun. Although my biggest complaint after going through the system is the pettiness between different tiers. Take one look at the discussion page and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Overall as a community Greek houses don’t tend to get along with each other and would rather compete with one another.
Although it’s been slowly on its way out, Greek life at Michigan State is well worth its while and offers people many great opportunities to be social and to make great connections. It’s definitely more beneficial to rush as a guy as opposed to a girl, they can get into most parties without being in a sorority. However, for both genders there are definitely perks for being part of the greek system. It’s very selective for girls and relatively selective for guys. Most of the sororities are fine for girls to join and about 2/3rds of the fraternities are decent enough. Overall, if you’re relatively normal, you should be able to make it in some sort of fraternity/sorority here
The sorority selection process is extremely competitive, but when it comes down to it, it's a lot of chance. The fraternity process is less rigorous and less competitive, but there's way more hazing involved. Also the girls are way hotter than the guys in my opinion. They really glam up and guys roll into parties looking like homeless people half the time.
greek life at MSU is pretty big and a great option for meeting friends. although it can be VERY political. this website only proves the problematic/toxic nature of greek life at MSU. if u plan on rushing STAY OFF GREEKRANK... so much misinformation that can poison ur judgements during rush
Greek life is huge at MSU. If you join a fraternity or a sorority youâ€™ll have something to do all throughout college. Would definitely recommend rushing somewhere whoever you are. Doesnâ€™t hurt to at least try it out
For sure the best Greek life school in the state of Michigan. One of the better big 10 schools for Greek life but isnâ€™t at the level of Wisconsin, Ohio State, or Illinois; probably the same as Indiana. Despite tons of houses being kicked off recently though, Greek life is still a dominant force in the school. All the best parties on campus are fraternity parties and it offers the best way for guys and girls to meet each other and make friends. At a school of 50,000 with good football and basketball programs, it makes a lot of sense for Michigan State to have one of the best Greek systems in the country.
Michigan State Greek Life has given me a completely different view on what it's like to be in a Greek organization. They want to help and are constantly doing so, whether it be a dine-to-donate, a bottle drive, a 5k, or even Greek Week. Yes, there are parties, but that is not the main reason why Greek Life exists. It's to help the community as a whole.
Despite many top tier places falling apart for fraternities and sororities becoming slightly less popular for girls, Greek life here dominates the social scene. Top tier and upper middle tier fraternities are always the most popular places to party at. The Greek system here isn't as elite as other Big 10 schools but it's definitely way more fun than most other Big 10 schools. Don't listen to whatever snobby Michigan student says about MSU on this site, they're just jealous that we throw better parties and we have better people.
I feel like Msu Greek life has been on the decline, with frat houses getting in trouble and sororities having more and more trouble with a "good looking" pledge class. All the houses seem to be declining compared to their past. Hopefully this can be turned around.
