Greek life is not as popular at Lock Haven as it is at other colleges like Penn State. However, the fraternities and sororities at Lock Haven support a national philanthropy and participate in several community service projects, providing opportunities to help others who are less fortunate. In addition to building friendships with others on campus and having a family away from home, being a part of a sorority or fraternity can look amazing on one's resume, too. Plus, all members are required to maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA.
The social aspect of Greek life includes intramural sports, date functions, football games, Greek Week, and other organized events. Women are not allowed to have a sorority house on campus because of a law that forbids more than five girls living in a house. Men are allowed to have their own houses and place letters outside of their homes. Greek life is something that you have to make time for and have to really want to take part in because it is time-consuming.
