Greek life/drinking at Wake

mmb333mmb333 Registered User Posts: 39 Junior Member
I know Greek life is big at Wake and obviously that comes with a lot of drinking, but do the students there know their limits? I'm not against drinking really but I do not like when kids don't stop and understand good limits, etc. From my understanding Wake is a "work hard, play hard" kind of school, which would be ideal for me. Thanks!

    I would say that incoming freshmen at Wake definitely don't know their limits. EMTs are most busy the first semester of every year, especially in the freshmen dorms. Most seem to get a grip around their sophomore year- but not everyone does. Underage drinking is a big problem on campus that Wake is still trying to manage.

    At parties, you will see a range of people. Some will be just buzzed, others a step or two away from falling down. My advice would be try to mind your business (meaning don't start to police strangers on how much they're drinking) but have kindness and watch out for your fellow Deacs. A lot of people try to take advantage of people who are too far gone. Also people constantly drink themselves sick- make sure that you reach out and attempt to get them help before it's too late.

    You don't have to drink at a party to have a good time. It makes it a little bit easier to socialise with people you probably wouldn't have before, but it's still possible to do without alcohol.

    Go Deacs.

    I don't know that it is different than any other college. Kids in college like to party. There will be drinking. My daughter and her friends drink, but they don't get stupid drunk. It's quite frankly just not safe to get too drunk. Most of the girls at WFU are very pretty which makes them vulnerable at parties. There are smart ones that know this and drink smart or not at all.
