For those who are looking for it, Greek life does exist, but it does not dominate the social scene as it tends to at other U.S. colleges. For many BU students, the lack of a prevalent Greek scene on campus is a welcomed benefit of student life. The truth is that Boston offers far more outside of campus, and an overwhelming Greek population would have little influence on the dispersed student body. For some, Greek life is the alternative to a real social life. As one student commented, “It dominates the scene for the unimaginative.” It seems to have been created for individuals attending small schools or schools located in more remote areas. For many, this scene is simply unnecessary here.
It’s widely believed that, according to Boston law, more than seven unrelated females living in the same space are considered to be running a house of prostitution (though the “blue law” that designates this was actually repealed in 1984). Regardless, there are no sorority houses, either on or off campus. While fraternities do not share the same logistical problems, the Greek life constitutes only a small percent of the student population.
