The College of Mount Saint Vincent is a traditional college established by the Sisters of Charity. The Sisters founded the school in the name of St. Vincent de Paul with the values of goodness, discipline, and knowledge. So, with its Catholic upbringing, it's not surprising that the presence of Greek life is nonexistent at CMSV.
Most students are aware of the absence of fraternities and sororities—some are disappointed with this, while others seem unfazed. Even though there is no Greek life, there are still plenty of opportunities for students to socialize with one another. However, despite the very diverse population here, CMSV students tend to gravitate toward those with the same ethnicity and spend most of their time together, and they seem to attend parties with the same group of people on Thursday nights. If you want to socialize with students of different ethnicities, your best bet is probably through the College's intramural sports teams and open gyms. There's nothing quite like spending time playing a sport for the love of it with others who have the same passion. Another unifier is campus-hosted parties—but don't be surprised if the usual cliques end up socializing with each other at these.
