I am in a frat too, and the hazing isn't as bad there. Sure you might get a better Greek life, but the family that you build in the sororities and frats at Luther are unreal.
I agree "greek" life at Luther really is not typical and hardly existed. What little "greek" life that does exist is quite immature. "Greek" life is more for fun and doing ridiculous things rather than anything scholarly that other schools have.
I haven't actually participated in the Greek life at Luther, but from what I've seen, I'd say this is very accurate. It's very visible that pledges have to do these kind of activities.

Greek life is hit-and-miss at Luther. Although not actually supported by the College, some sororities and fraternities have a long tradition of existence at Luther. The most popular male fraternities are Sigma Chi Theta, which is traditionally athletes; the Tri-Omegas, traditionally drinkers; and the Tri-Lambdas, traditionally musical and academics. The female sororities are dominated by the Tau Delta Gammas, for girls who want the traditional sorority experience, and the Alpha Beta Psis, for those who just want a group of girls to drink with. There are also underground fraternities, which is redundant at Luther, since no Greek organization is school supported.
Other than a few annual parties, Greek life is mostly dominated by meetings and officer elections. Pledging only lasts for a week, and there are few mentions of them in campus events, other than the service fraternity APO, which attempts to do charity work and fundraisers. The “life” they lead is not all that different from the normal student life due to the lack of Greek housing and exclusivity. In this way, Greek life is accessible to anyone who wants a taste, but it is not an essential part of the Luther experience.
