it's chicago. if you can't find anything to do you must be blind, deaf and mute. greek life or no greek life, chicago's filled to the rim with things to do.
First off, being in greek life is not a decision you make based on partying. Second, there is a whole world of opportunities if you decide to go greek, and while I am biased, I think it is better than life as a member of the non-greek community. The volunteering, events, competitions, and network of people that fraternity and sorority life provides is unbeatable.

The nightlife in Lincoln Park tends to be one of the highlights of a DePaul student’s college experience. There is much more variety to the nightlife in the Lincoln Park area and surrounding neighborhoods than you would find outside of an urban environment, which means that the nightlife never gets old—and DePaul students, for the most part, are avid partiers. There are enough bars on Lincoln Avenue, Webster Avenue, and Halsted Street to keep your Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights full for months. And if you travel a little farther off campus, you can have a DePaul public safety officer pick you up at the Fullerton "El" station and transport you safely back to your dorm room.
There are bar specials every night, and students come to know these like the back of their hands—although Thirsty Thursday just about anywhere is a classic favorite. Most of the bars here have a very relaxed, “regular, local customer” atmosphere. The bar scene definitely defines nightlife for a DePaul student, and most local bars cater to a college student’s budget and desired atmosphere. One of the most important things to remember is that there is more to do than the usual bar routines. There are a variety of parties around campus and events, which include Second City, Blue Man Group performances, Broadway plays, and the symphony (sometimes there are even free tickets for students!).
