“Are you going through [formal] recruitment?”
This question flew over my head during O-Week of my first year. Why would I join Greek life when I have 100 housemates who have my back? The Housing system at UChicago functions as a central community in many students’ lives, and as a result, many people dismiss Greek life as frivolous and unnecessary. At the end of my first year, however, I realized that I had shunned something that I really didn’t know too much about.
