Greekin’ Out

Greek Life can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. In our first “Table Talk,” we asked our columnists — and others in the Penn community — to chime in on the pros and cons of Greek culture at Penn.

Greek life can provide an extremely rewarding experience for those who choose to get involved. One of the greatest aspects of joining a fraternity or sorority is the sense of camaraderie between people who accept and trust each other.

There is a wide range of Greek organizations, and many people can find a community with similar values and interests. Once they do, they not only have a pledge class of future best friends, but also older members to look to for guidance. Furthermore, Greek life provides fun social events, means for individual growth, philanthropy, professional networking and much more.
