    frats are virtually non existent. less than 3% of the pop. at nyu is greek. im applying there ed so i dont have first hand info but thats what i've heard...

    I assure you more than 3% of the population are involved in frats and sororities. These facts that are on Princeton Review and other publications are mistaken. For the most part, people pre-game in their dorms with friends and then move the party out to a bar or lounge etc. You can party in your dorm if you have a cool RA and are smart however. Freshmen usually can't because it is known that they are all under 21

    lol, my roommate was from Singapore and had just gotten out of the military (2 1/2 year mandatory committment for all men) so he was 21. Thanks to a loophole in the rules, we were allowed to have alcohol in the room as long as we said it was his.
  • BRWNEYES87BRWNEYES87 Posts: 163Registered User Junior Member
    well...is it like other colleges? where ppl still bring alcohol? ?? so freshmen dont party at all????? :l

    any more info would be appreciated.. :)

    do the RA's do room checks for alcohol?
  • CardinalCardinal Posts: 148Registered User Junior Member
    depends on the RA. My RA was cool, her rule was, if I don't see it, it's not there. Most RAs are like that: basic rule is don't be stupid.
  • BRWNEYES87BRWNEYES87 Posts: 163Registered User Junior Member
    so im assuming this means No free alcohol at frat type parties?

    i think the policy on overnight guests doesn't have different stipulations for either sex... it's just that one person can only stay a max of 6 nights in one month and you must leave your NYU ID and they must leave a photo ID at the desk until you/they leave

    i thiiiink...

    Their numbers are off. The percent of students involved in Greek Life generally hovers between 1-2% each year
  • askaboutNYUaskaboutNYU Posts: 124Registered User Junior Member
    LOL Wonderland do you go here. Fraternity and Sorority life make up 5-6% of students.
  • hhhuanghhhuang Posts: 80Registered User Junior Member
    it doesn't matter. all the numbers are pretty low.
  • WonderandWonderand Posts: 16Registered User New Member
    From the NYU factbook--3% of freshman men join fraternities, 2% of freshman year. Compiled from data taken during the 2004 fall semester.

    askaboutNYU--please re-read my screenname, and no I don't go there, I work there.
