Sororities at UCSB???

<p>I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about the sororities at UCSB and what exactly they are like, how reputable they are or arn't..</p>

<p>I would like to know as well</p>

<p>My d's best friend from hs is in a sorority at SB. She says that they exist and are a great way to find a solid group of friends. Sororities are not a huge deal there (small population is involved) though and you can have a social life without being in one. One of her other close friends joined one and shortly after deactivated because she didn't have time to really be involved. They have housing that you can live in and it is less expensive than some of the other housing, but remember there is the expense of being in the sorority. Cost depends on which house you join. If you have any other specific questions I can call her and find out for you.</p>

<p>Collegemom is right, greek life isn't a huge deal at SB. But, I know that compared to the frats, the sororities have a lot more leadership activities. If you are looking to get involved at UCSB, there are plenty of clubs and organizations.</p>

<p>My roommate is in a sorority and they are very active. The girls all seem very nice and it's a great way to get to know people. If you are interested in joining don't hesitate to check it out Fall quarter. You can try to rush and see the bids you get and if you don't like the sororities you got then you can always try other clubs or rush again in the Spring. No matter where you go there are going to be sororities with good and bad reps so you have to check them out for yourself and see what you think. It's true though that here at UCSB you don't need to be in a sorority at all to have a social life.</p>
