Should I be involved in Greek Life? I'm a little hesitant / not sure if it's right for me.


When I got to Penn, I was also hesitant to become involved in Greek Life. I always thought Greek Life was very heteronormative and exclusive. When I got to Penn, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Greek Life was pretty accepting of all people and inclusive to those who wanted to give it a try.

In Freshman year, I joined a professional business fraternity because I wanted to be more exposed to a diverse group of individuals interested in business. I have absolutely loved this community and recommend rushing to my friends.

Only 25% of Penn students are a part of a Greek organization, so it definitely is not something you have to do; however, I'd say it's worth giving it a shot if you are looking for a new community.
