Why Go Greek?

Why Greek?

College and life are both full of important decisions, but one of the best decisions you can make during your college career is to "Go Greek!!"

But why? Here at Purdue, we have a highly respected Greek community. Our Greek system boasts a number of advantages over non-Greek life, which include:

  • Better average GPA than non-Greeks
  • A very successful philanthropy system in which every house picks a charitable cause to support (Here at FarmHouse, we choose to support the Leukemia Lymphoma Society in honor of our late brother, John Romine)
  • A jump start to civic engagement (Every U.S. president but two since 1825 have been Greek)
  • A host of connections that are available to you for a future career (About 85% of Fortune 500 Executives were Greeks in college)
Additionally, here at FarmHouse we host an annual recruitment dinner where employers that were previous FarmHouse members have the opportunity to return to the house and recruit current undergraduates.

Whether you choose to rush FarmHouse or not, we encourage that you go Greek while you are at Purdue. It is a decision that is key to a successful college career as well as your post-college endeavors!
