Is there a fraternity tier system at University Wisconsin?

Like well respected and on campus fraternity.

    If there is nobody cares much. I'm sure there is amongst themselves but from the rest of campus--nobody cares. Lately it seems to have tended to becoming a more out of state thing to do.

    Agree that no one outside the Greek system pays any attention to them. None have houses on campus- only close by, as are many off campus apartments. No added respect from nonfrat people- off the radar for most students. UW is not a place dominated by Greek life. It is important only to those who choose it.

    How does the rush work? I saw online there's like a form. Do you actually have to go through all the houses for fraternities?

    Very few care enough about frats to be helpful. Wait until you are a student and see how things work. You will learn a ton about UW once you are there.

    My observation is that the Greek system is not central to campus life at UW-Madison. I'm sure that those in it enjoy it, but it seems pretty much irrelevant to most students.
