it is not like other schools. It is completely fake and full of BS! It is pretty comical actually. Pike, sigCHI, DG, and SDT are only ones worthwhile

Greek life is not a disruptive force on campus, but it is sizeable enough to make a difference. Although UM does not have the massive Greek system in place at some universities, there are plenty of fraternities and sororities for students to choose from. If you want to stay away from Greek life, you won't have to try hard at UM. The fraternity houses are lined on a road on the edge of campus, and the sorority and fraternity suites are in a building in a quiet part of UM. If not for the letter shirts seen around school, non-Greek students could easily forget that there are even fraternities and sororities at UM. But behind the scenes, the Greek system here is very important.
The social aspect of Greek life is present at UM, but is not overwhelming. The fraternities host parties occasionally at their houses, but UM's real social scene can be found at the bars and clubs in Miami. For the most part, Greeks hang out with other Greeks. The fraternities and sororities compete against each other in intramurals and Homecoming events, as well as a yearly competition called Greek Week. There is certainly a bond that exists between members of the Greek community, as well as a strong sense of pride and competition with other Greek organizations. If you've been studying episodes of MTV's Fraternity Life in preparation for college, you may want to look elsewhere. But if you want a Greek system that is quiet but still important, you will like UM's.
