Greeks are a minority at USC (about 27 percent of the student body), but since those involved are very vocal and visible in representing their organization, Greek life seems a lot more prominent on campus. The addition of lavish Greek housing on campus seems to have increased the number of recruits. Most students agree that Greek life constitutes a major part of the social scene, but does not dominate it. If you want Greek life to dominate your social life, it can, but it doesn’t have to. Apart from this, students who are not Greek have the opportunity to meet plenty of friends and get involved in activities that are not Greek-related.
All of the Greek societies sponsor some sort of community service. They also organize formals, participate in intramural sports, and have mixers where they get together with other societies. The cost of joining a society can be pretty expensive—in terms of both money and time—but most find the experience worth it. There are also the coed Greek service fraternities and honor societies, which are less expensive to join and focus more on academics and community service rather than partying. These societies usually have inductions in the spring because qualification depends on grades from the first semester. Whether it’s a social, service, or academic society, Greek life is bustling at USC, and it’s constantly expanding and improving.
