Greek Life ROI–Do Fraternities and Sororities Enhance Your Earning Potential?

The Street, February 22, 2016
Is paying an additional few thousand dollars a year to be an active member of a sorority or fraternity in college truly worth it in the long run?
With tuition costs soaring and college debt at its highest level in history, does shelling out the extra cash to be part of Greek life make sense, or are you ultimately just paying for costly party expenses?…..
Not all colleges and universities have Greek life, which seems to suit them just fine. College Board cites thousands of schools without Greek life, such as Amherst College, Brandeis University, Middlebury College and New College of Florida, a public, liberal arts honors college in Sarasota, Fla.
Mark Johnson, interim dean at New College, says he isn’t sure whether or not integrating Greek life on campus was a conscious decision, because the school, referred to as “Brilliantly Unique. Uniquely Brilliant,” has a full-campus inclusive vibe.
