College can be a terrifying and eye opening experience. It can also be one of the greatest times in any young adults life. There are many groups and clubs to participate in as well, but the biggest attraction always seems to be Greek Life. How do you know if Greek Life is right for you though?

Greek Life isn’t all about parties and hazing (what we see in the movies), there are actually four different types of Greek Life Categories.

1. Honorary Greek Organizations
2. Social Greek Organizations
3. Service Greek Organizations
4. Professional Greek Organizations

So before saying yea or neigh, consider all of your Greek and Non Greek options. Most Greek Life thrives on new members, so when in doubt, ask questions about the different organizations. More often then not, members will be happy to give you information. Also, a surprising amount of faculty will also have information about the Greek Life on campus and can be a great resource to tap into. Overall, Greek Life can be a great experience and can help you build a strong network for you later on, but consider all your option and get as much information as you can before deciding.
