What is the best part of Greek life at Memphis?

"The best part of Greek Life at Memphis is that it is not what I thought Greek Life was going to be. I was the guy in high school that vowed to never join a fraternity, but the chapters here at the U of M are different. Chapters are focusing on member development and concerning themselves with making better men. It is the ultimate way to make the college experience, but to better yourself in a positive way at the same time."
