Greek life is a large part of the social scene and tradition of Ohio Wesleyan. A little under half of the student body is members of a fraternity or a sorority, but a large majority of the public parties is Greek-related. Many students come in saying they will never "go Greek," but soon find themselves pledging their favorite fraternity or sorority because there seems to be one for everybody. The "mansion-like" fraternity houses are set up near the dorms on a grassy area known as "The Hill." It is the prime place to find a party. This area can also be a spot to find a good meal, as each mansion has its own chef.
Students will mostly agree that Greeks, although sometimes divisive, are a positive influence on the campus. On average, Greeks have a higher GPA, and overall, many of them are the most active in campus organizations and community service, yet they are still not received in such an upbeat light by the University. There have been a few mishaps leading some fraternities to be kicked out and to lose their houses, but the Greek organizations are also a source of OWU pride. For most OWU students, "to join or not to join" will be one of their biggest questions. Many will say joining was the greatest decision they have ever made, and others will tell you how wonderful it is to stay "independent." The best thing to do is to keep an open mind about it when you arrive.
