In conjunction with its annual best colleges list, The Princeton Reviewalso ranks the US colleges with the most Greek life.
This year Transylvania University, a small liberal arts college in Kentucky, took the top spot with just over 53% of its students participating in Greek life. You might already be familiar with the school’s Delta Sigma Phi fraternity brothers, who caught the attention of Taylor Swift herself with their “Shake It Off” video.
It wasn’t surprising to find that many of the schools on the list also appeared on the Review’s lists of the biggest party schools, schools that drink lots of beer, and schools that drink lots of hard liquor.
Nearly half of the colleges on this list are in the south, but Pennsylvania is the most widely represented state, accounting for 20% of the schools ranked.
Here are the schools with the most fraternity brothers and sorority sisters:
- Transylvania University — Lexington, Kentucky
- Gettysburg College — Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
- Southern Methodist University — Dallas, Texas
- DePauw University — Greencastle, Indiana
- Dartmouth College — Hanover, New Hampshire
