Going Greek? 10 Colleges with the Most Students in Fraternities and Sororities

flagA lot of factors go into deciding a school. You’ll probably consider a school’s size, culture, campus, location, majors offered, etc. But have you ever wondered about the importance of Greek life on campus?

If everybody on your college campus is in a fraternity or sorority, would that affect your decision?  What if nobody is? How are you supposed to know if you want to be part of Greek life before you even land in your freshman dorm room? It’s a strange and hard decision you have to make, so the best way to figure out if you’re into the toga parties, mixers and various accessories with Greek letters is to contact a friend or a friend of a friend, or even a friend of a friend of a friend’s cousin’s step-dad’s niece, and ask her some questions!
