The Greek system at Oxy is very small and has very little visibility. Most of the fraternities keep to themselves, and do very little besides party or hold events only for their own members. They have been dwindling in number lately, and there has been less and less support from students and administration. The sororities are somewhat stronger, but they too have very little presence on campus save for a few points during the year when large parties are thrown by one or two of the sorority houses. Most people know very little about the Greek system at Oxy, and even fewer actively participate.
Overall, the Greek Life on campus appears to be dying. Not much is currently going with the Greek community, and very little is being done by the school to encourage a revival. Most students involved with the Greek system say that the school is trying to get rid of fraternities because of insurance issues, and expressed a high amount of anger for not having the community that a strong group of fraternities could give the school. Some students have started a new fraternity, which gives hope that the community could be revived, but it is obvious that doing so will obviously take a long time and is very dependent on how active all the Greek organizations can be over the next few years. Those looking for a strong Greek community as a central part of their college life should definitely look elsewhere.
