Most students agree that fraternities and sororities don’t dominate Stanford’s social scene. Fraternities sponsor the majority of popular parties on campus, but these are generally open to all students, and there are plenty of alternatives. A large majority of students don’t feel the need to participate in Greek life at all, and most feel that the current size of Stanford’s Greek system is large enough, if not too big. At a school with less than 15 percent of students going Greek, that sentiment is telling. If you don’t rush, you will still be able to have plenty of fun and make friends as an undergraduate.
The Greek system at Stanford is fairly diverse. There’s a frat for computer enthusiasts who like to play computer games over the LAN. There are some more traditional ones that are mainly comprised of athletes or students into networking or being involved with student government. There’s even an anti-frat fraternity where most of the guys are into playing guitar and being laid-back. The sororities don’t have as much diversity, but do break down roughly by a combination of attractiveness and sexual discretion. For students who want to get involved in Greek life but don’t want as much of a commitment, there are several un-housed frats and sororities.
