This study examines attitudes and opinions individuals have about PanHellenic Greek organizations and sheds like on the stigmas and realities associated with fraternities and sororities. At a small liberal arts college in the state of Missouri, 87 students, who were not affiliated with a PanHellenic Greek organization, were surveyed to determine their attitudes and opinions of those who were members of a PanHellenic Greek organization. The survey addressed overall opinions and in particular the aspects including the following: alcohol consumption, drug use, GPA status, hazing, and community service involvement. Descriptive statistics show that the majority (62.1%) of respondents had generally neutral attitudes about PanHellenic Greek life and responses to the particular categories of questions varied.
