It's all Greek to me
Is the phrase "over 90% greek" supposed to indicate something other than having a student population that is composed of more than 90% Greek nationals? Is this a U.S.-centric phrase that's supposed to mean something?
It means that over 90% of the student body belongs to a greek-letter organization (i.e., fraternity or sorority). Clearmoon 01:04, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

I attended this school at one time. I wanted to mention that at this school one has to practically join a fraternity. If one does not one can expect to be harassed almost everyday and have money extorted from oneself by fraternity pledges. One can expect very little help from the administration. One can expect a multitude of pranks. Fraternities and Sororities have test files and tutor each other. It's more or less a condoned form of cheating. Most of the students party hard every weekend and underage drinking is quite common. If you have the misfortune of being in one of the dorms you can expect to have your bathroom facilities destroyed every weekend. The library is very much limited in resources. It's closed for both lunch and dinner. It typically closed around 10 p.m. and on weekends it closed at 4 p.m. and one could hear "music" blaring from the fraternity houses on a Saturday. Early hours also for Friday closes at 5 p.m. if memory serves. The student body was not very diverse when I attended it had recently gone coed. I can still remember people asking derisively if I was a Jew. One would really have to have a car to take advantage of the University of Missouri's Ellis library in Columbia to really do any worthwhile work. I am also aware that being such a small school that in the upper levels there were very limited classes offered. One would have to for instance have to take a class at the University of Colorado and have that class transfered in because the school requires it for a degree yet doesn't offer it.
I disagree. For me West U was quite a rewarding experience. Sure Greek life played a major role on the campus, and there was some racial and religious bias among students, but no more so than in the general population. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shibbuleth (talk • contribs) 17:01, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
