Did you know that pledging started on Sunday, February 10th? If you are not Greek or know many of them then most likely you would not have noticed. Here at Alfred State, there are approximately 200 Greeks, now that does not seem like a lot. However, Greeks play a huge role on campus. Many of them are Resident Assistants; hold numerous positions in Student Activities and positions on Student Senate. That means that Greeks are not just active in their fraternity or sorority but they are also active on campus on top of being a student.
Greek Life might not be for everyone and as a Greek myself I am aware of this. We all pledge for a different reason. Some people may have the same or similar reasons while others are completely different. Whatever the reason may be, it was our own decision. No one ever forces you into Greek life; if you want it then you go after it.
Although pledging has started this semester, if you are interested in Greek life you are always welcomed to any Greek around campus more about their house. I know for myself I would be more than happy to answer any questions anyone may have.
