College
by Brandon Wenerd on December 6, 2012

At the 951 ranked college and universities that reported fraternity participation data to U.S. News in a 2012 survey, an average of 8.1 percent of the male, degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in fall 2011 were members of a fraternity.

The average fraternity membership at the top 10 schools for male Greek life participation was much higher: 68.9 percent. The list has a very different look from the 2011 version. The second school this year, for instance–Lyon College in Arkansas–was nowhere to be seen on last year's top 10 list.

Remember, Bros: Fratitude is in the eye of the beholder. Many of the usual private school suspects this list:

10. Dartmouth College (NH) – 48% of male population in Greek Life

9. Transylvania University (KY) — 50% of male population in Greek Life

8. Wabash College (IN) - 52% of male population in Greek Life

7. York College (NE) - 60% of male population in Greek Life

6. Millsaps College (MS) - 60% of male population in Greek Life

5. Sewanee—University of the South (TN) - 67% of male population in Greek Life

4. DePauw University (IN) - 76% of male population in Greek Life

3. Washington and Lee University (VA) - 86% of male population in Greek Life

2. Lyon College (AR) - 92% of male population in Greek Life

1. Welch College (TN) - 98% of male population in Greek Life

 

I want to meet the 2% of dudes who aren't in a fraternity at Welch College in Tennessee, which has like 400 students. That has to be really, really awkward. Oh, and if you go to Welch College and AREN'T in a fraternity, I'm actually being serious here. I'd love to hear your story: brandon@brobible.com.
