With Recruitment Week upon us, everyone is talking about going Greek. It’s written all over campus: “GO GREEK!” “Add some letters to your life!” “Sisters are forever!” “Nothing is stronger than a brotherhood!”
As a freshman, the thoughts that come along with “going Greek” overwhelm me. At a small school like Alma, it seems like a large number of our students are a part of the Greek community. I personally feel like a lost puppy who has a lot of questions:
What has your Greek experience been like? What have you enjoyed most about it? What made you go Greek in the first place? And is it worth the money you pay in dues?
Was it a good addition to your résumé, as it is rumored to be? Are your sisters or brothers still a part of your life?
Or is being Greek more talk than it’s worth? Did you ever feel like it was too much of a time burden? Or not what you expected it to be?
Honest opinions, please!
