Greek life does not play a huge role on campus. While there are a lot of students involved, there are also a lot who are not. It is not essential to be a part of a Greek community if you intend to have a social life on campus. The fraternities and sororities do a lot of good on campus and in the community in terms of volunteer work, but they are usually only recognized for their faults and downfalls, such as parties, underage drinking, and the like. This negative view was only enhanced when an SU fraternity was allegedly involved in sexual assaults over the past few years. That unfortunate incident only involved a few fraternity brothers but managed to tarnish the reputation of all other Greeks on campus.
Being Greek is a great way to get involved on campus, and despite the negative images surrounding the fraternities and sororities, it winds up being a positive choice for the majority of students who become Greek. Recently, because the rules were made stricter regarding underage drinking and parties due to the alleged sexual assaults, frat parties became obsolete on campus, making the party and drinking scene reliant on off-campus parties.
