Cost of Greek life in SEC.

Hi all, i will either be attending Alabama or Ole Miss next year and I am very interested in joining a fraternity, but I have a few questions. What is the cost per semester/year if your in a top or middle tier fraternity at either of these schools? Also being from out of state how will that effect my chances of getting a bid?

One of my son's has three friends at Ole Miss (all out-of-state) and they pledged fraternities. The same goes for my neighbor's son and he was also a sophomore. These guys all pledged fall 2011. This past fall, two of my neighbors have sons who pledged at Ole Miss. Tiers aren't discussed at Greek Chat, but all six of these out-of-state guys joined very large, strong houses. BAMA is a popular choice for many in my community and quite a few pledge, so out-of-state does not appear to be an issue there at least in some fraternities. Sorry, I don't know specifics on costs. Good luck to you!

You could try contacting the Greek life office at the schools you are interested in and ask if they can give you an idea what the high and low fraternity semester costs.

Ask them for it in this ^ way - don't ask for the "average" cost. Ask what the highest priced fraternity's cost is, and if you can't afford it, you need to rethink Greek life.

Note: Popularity of chapter on campus may or may not correlate with expense. I.E., don't automatically assume the most expensive one is the most popular or vice versa.

Probably good for a year at 3k a year not including housing and depending on school/fraternity.
