Greek is everything at TCU. While many people join, there are those who don't and it's completely okay, but sometime down the line you will feel lonely and end up joining.
Everyone here is healthy and active.
Personally I'm not apart of any fraternity, it's just a little silly to me to have to pay all this money to be apart of an organization who is so two faced. Most of them are at least.
TCU athletics is a very big thing on campus. Everyone talks about it all the time, and the players are valued an extreme amount. It's always fun going to the games.
First and foremost, I am a freshman female in a sorority. I went through formal recruitment and ended up dropping, but later joined the new sorority. Rush is very stressful, if you're rushing a sorority, get recommendations, google it and do some research. I expected it to be much easier to get into a sorority than it was. This year about 400 out of the 1000 girls that rushed dropped out for various reasons. There are definitely house stereotypes that impacted this. As a girl though, even if you were not to be in a sorority and were interested in going to parties, its totally possible. I can't say a lot about guys' rush but it is competitive and I know a couple guys that did not get any bids. For guys it is much harder to get into frat parties without being in one. Greek life is most definitely noticeable on campus and the hard work is worth it.
I'm not too into the Greek life but I know it's a big presence within the campus. Many students on campus are involved in a fraternity or sorority and there typically isn't any animosity between Greeks and non-Greeks.
