“Greek Life: To Rush or Not to Rush?”

Fraternity and sorority chapters1 host mixers, formals, and functions throughout the year for members and non-members alike to socialize, network, have fun, and meet new people. For students going to a school far from home where they might not know anyone, the prospect of making new friends through joining a fraternity or sorority is often a big draw.

Greek-life organizations can also be a great support group for students transitioning into college life. Not only is it an easy way to make new friends, but older members serve as mentors and can give helpful advice and support to new members who may be struggling to adjust to campus life or classes. Students who join fraternities and sororities have, on average, a 20% higher graduation rate than those who do not go Greek.
