    This is the only good thing about the school- the food. It's great in Leehman, its an all you can eat buffet but dont eat too much or you'llget fat haha. THE ONLY ISSUE I HAVE IS THAT IT CLOSES SO RIDCULOUSLY EARLY AND THE SCHEUDLE IS SO LIMITED WHICH MAKES YOU HAVE TO RUSH TO GET THERE

    Greek life definitely exists, but many of the fraternities and sororities have been banned from campus. Choose your house wisely if you decide to pledge after your first semester.

    Greek life doesn't run the campus, but is alive and well. No one looks down on you if you aren't Greek, but there is definitely a great bond between the brothers and sisters of the campus.

    Find your right group of people. If Greek life isn't for you, don't live it. I plan on Pledging Sophomore year.

    Greek life isn't really a big part of the campus, as they don't really have a strong presence. SUNY Potsdam however does have a lot of them, and from what I hear some of them are really nice and can be a good experience.
