Greek life is all about community. In a place as large as McGill, it can be hard to make yourself feel at home. What makes the Greek community so special is that not only are you meeting and learning all kinds of new people from different walks of life, but you all support and care for one another like a family would. Having this support system and sense of encouragement can really help you strive for excellence and become the best version of yourself.
