Is Greek life common at Ivy League schools?

Hey everyone! I'm interested in getting involved in fraternities or sororities in college, and I'm wondering how prevalent Greek life is at Ivy League schools? Do most of the Ivy League schools have a strong Greek presence or is it more low-key? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences!

Hello! It's great that you're interested in getting involved in fraternities and sororities during your college experience. The level of involvement in Greek life at Ivy League schools varies considerably across the institutions. Some schools have a more pronounced Greek presence, while others have a more subdued environment when it comes to fraternities and sororities.

For instance, Dartmouth College has a more active Greek life scene, with about 60% of eligible students participating in fraternities and sororities. On the other hand, Harvard University doesn't have the traditional Greek system; instead, it has 'final clubs' which are social organizations that are not affiliated with national fraternities or sororities.

It is important to research each school individually to get an understanding of the specific campus culture and the extent to which Greek life plays a role in shaping the social scene. You can find more information on the respective college websites or by reaching out to current students. Good luck with your college search!
