Greek Life Explanation
Greek Life may seem overwhelming or confusing, that is why I am here to help explain what it truly represents. Greek life stems from two different categories one for the men the Interfraternial Council and the National Panhellenic Council for women. These two categories are important because they are the start of Greek Life and who controls/oversees the bylaws (like federal laws) for the fraternities or sororities under them. The greek alphabet defines the different names within the brothers and sisters of Greek unity within universities. Greek life may be misconstrued with the rumors that may spread for the good or bad that can be offered. I am a senior on the University of Wisconsin Whitewater campus and a member of Delta Zeta Sorority, and an executive board member for the National Panhellenic Council as well. I am excited to share the positive and negative experiences that I have had personally with my time in Greek Life. I can not wait for next week when we can talk more about the meaning behind joining Greek life and what it can do for someone.
I am not involved in Greek life but I think it’s a cool thing to learn more about and be informed on. I think having more information and peoples actual experiences can help people gauge whether or not they want to be a part of Greek life.
It’s nice to see fellow expatriates from Greece promoting greek strong bonds. A very positive sign and it would be encouraging if we get more of these unity actions among all universities on a global level. There are signs that something could have changed recently…
As someone who’s formerly involved in Greek Life, I think it is important to share and highlight both positive impacts greek life has on people. It is also important to address the negative stereotypes that can implement a bad reputation among the greek community as a whole.
