Frat life?

nellyonenellyone Registered User Posts: 50 Junior Member
I'm a prospective freshman and very interested in greek life at Penn. How would you describe each of the different frats at Penn? Could you elaborate on the demographic, social, and academic aspects of each? What about reputation? I saw this link (https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-pennsylvania/1032919-penn-fraternities.html), but seeing as it's from 2010, I wouldn't think it's very reliable. How much does wealth/athleticism factor into each demographic? Thanks in advance

    You're early to the process, but good to think ahead. You have plenty of time to figure out the greek thing. Penn doesn't allow pledging fall of freshman year so you have the whole semester to get to know the brothers at each house. You'd then pledge in the spring if selected.

    My son is a freshman. He told me that there is a fraternity and sorority for everyone to join. It is very diverse.

    Yeah, it would be great if a current student could chime in on the reputation of each of the Penn fraternities for the incoming class of 2023. All the threads on this subject are outdated on CC.

    As far as I know, there will be a welcome session / Q&A session for the incoming freshman this year by the difference Tatar’s and sorority. It’s the first time that penn is doing this so take advantage of that.
