I’ve heard many wonderful things about southern Greek life. Most of my close friends have expressed a desire to join Greek life, and I’m also interested in it.
Many people have told me I’m an ideal frat guy because I’m conservative, play varsity sports, and party frequently. Regardless, I’m generally well-liked by my peers. (This may come off as trying to hype myself up, but I’m trying to give context for my question.)
Although I do not know much about Ole Miss, I understand that they have a significant Greek community.
I was recently given a full-tuition scholarship to Ole Miss (not a full scholarship, I will have to pay about $18K per year), so I know I will be able to afford Greek life dues and expenses should I join a frat.
However, the media attention surrounding instances of racism in Greek life have thrown me off, especially because I am Hispanic living in New Jersey.
Would typical fraternities at Ole Miss reject me due to my being Hispanic? Is Greek life at Ole Miss truly racist?
My inclination is that it is not racist, but I’d like to be sure.
