Greek Life members in Whitewater have their own houses where they have the opportunity to live independently among their fellow members for the year or semester. Because of their unique living arrangements they are able to better socialize with peers, create group study habits and plan events for their Greek organizations, learning more about how to become successful in the present and further down the road. This also gives them the advantage of having friends nearby to help them out, talk about life and participate in fun activities when living in a Greek house. Whitewater can be a place for these members to live in the local community in a nice, laid back and outgoing environment that also allows them to do fun activities with friends. Living in Greek houses and in Whitewater helps students learn life lessons for themselves, but with support of their peers.
There are actually many reasons why an organizational member might enjoy living in the Greek house. Lambda Chi former president, Ben Larson lived in the Lambda Chi Greek house, loving the time he spent their with his brothers.
“I enjoyed living in the house by getting the chance to be more social with my friends and work with the fraternity brothers on planning events for the fraternity. It also helped me with my studying skills more with it being more secluded and quiet,” said Larson.
Living off campus gives them many things for them to enjoy such as engaging with the local community and participating with members of the Whitewater community through different events.
