Like everything else at FSU, politics-- particularly, bureaucracy-- saturate "Greek" life at the university. Most of the reviews are from people who either aren't Greek, or Freshmen, so they don't see a lot of the underlying problems in the current system. First of all, Fayetteville State only recognizes the NPHC ("Divine Nine") which are the 9 biggest AA fraternities and sororities. This is fine, unless you want to join an organization that the school doesn't sanction; I have personally witnessed friends get harassed by the administration, called into the Dean's office, etc. just because they joined orgs that weren't sanctioned by the school. At least one "sanctioned" organization is suspended every year for hazing or some similar violation at the school. There are some great, great individuals in these organizations; however, since Greek life for most at the university is merely a popularity contest, all of them contain individuals who are snobby and power-hungry. The influence and importance of Greek life has been toned down in recent years, but Greek life is by far the most popular or exciting aspect of life for most FSU students.
