midsummers!

It's that time of the year again, when a lot of fraternity and sorority members come back to clean their houses -- aka lots of traffic and parties. I thought I'd address the subject of Greek life and parties in this post, since a lot of you may be interested.

Greek life at UVA - around 30% of UVA students are Greek. It may sound like a huge percentage, but it's not a big deal at all. There's no divide between Greek students, none of the 'you suck we rule' type mentality. People here don't really care what you're involved in, there's over 500 clubs so there's so much to do! Basically, if you're Greek, good for you, if not, more power to you. You have more time to do other things, and you will not be bored on the weekends just because you're not Greek. There is so. much. to. do here it's kind of insane.

Of course with Greek life comes parties. I've been told that we have some of the better parties in this area, but hey, who knows? I went to a couple my first year and quickly got bored. Guess that's not really the scene for me -- and it's alright here if you don't want to drink. There's diversity across all spectrums here and a lot of that includes people who love to party, people who find it's okay, people who are bored by it, and people who don't like to party. I have an active social life and hang out with a ton of friends on weekends. So really, come here and have fun, in whatever way that defines fun for you.

I agree. UVa is really quite diverse in it's student body. You have some that come here cause it is an awesome school with a greek scene. Some come here because it made the most financial sense. I never was a big partier in high school or even first semester. I didn't like going to parties where I didn't know anyone except the friend I came with BUT then I went greek to my own surprise and have adored it. Now I go to parties one or two nights a week and know tons of people at all of them now that I have a foot in the door. It seems whether it's greek life or another organization (uguides, fyp, habitat etc) students benefit from being involved and gain a very tight social circle(s).
