This school is so dominated by Greek Life…

For the social scene, there is none. Everyone is friendly, but if you live off campus you'll never make any friends at school. If you live on campus and you're not in a fraternity or sorority, you'll never speak to anybody other than your roommates. The Greek system owns this school. So if you don't want to pledge, don't bother coming here, because you'll never be more alone in your life. I've been here over a year, live on campus and don't belong to a fraternity, and I've never spoken to someone at this school for more than one minute. Seriously. It's that bad. I'm also a VERY social person and made tons of friends in HS easily at my last school. But here, if you don't have Greek letters on your shirt, you may as well not exist. Also all there is to do is party on the weekend. If you don't like to get drunk every weekend and make bad decisions, please spend your time and money elsewhere.

The town is small and most of the in state students leave during the weekend, but if you like the outdoors there's plenty to do, the school is built along a large lake and there's rowing and boating, and mountains nearby for biking and hiking. There are several bars close to campus that are usually packed on weekends, but if you're under 21 you'll just have to settle for sitting in your dorm surfing the internet. Parties are reserved for Greek students, so unless you pledge, you're not going. I wouldn't recommend this school unless you're from the south, or plan on joining a frat or sorority, because otherwise you'll feel invisible and out of place.

commentI have to agree, the majority of the people here have nothing to them. Their vision of "fun" consists of drinking and watching ESPN. There is almost nothing to do on weekends if you're not involved in greek. I'm already applying for transfers.
commentI agree 100% with your comments. Well said.
commentA lot of Universities you have to pay for your friends if you want them. I cannot say transferring will solve all your problems but you can try.
