Greek life is definitely predominant at ULV. There are six active Greek organizations on campus, and a few that are on campus from other campuses. Although we do not have as many as other schools, the Greeks at ULV definitely do a lot to make themselves known. At any given day, there will be a Greek org hosting an event, be it philanthropic, social, or simply public relations.
Athletes are also a large population of the school, nearly 30%. They also partake in their own philanthropic events, and teams support other teams wholeheartedly. The athletic program at ULV is extremely supportive and has a family-feel to it.
Campus Activities Board (CAB) and Student Government (ASULV) are also big on campus. CAB is who hosts events on campus, and ASULV is who funds them (and all other groups on campus). Events that are put on are comedy shows, concerts, philanthropic things, food trucks, craft days, club fairs, holiday activities, and so much more. I am the president of CAB and we host so many events - about 3 a week. They are well-publicized and we get really good attendance at them, and the students really enjoy them,
Students in the dorms do leave their dorms open, and the dorm buildings tend to grow into a family. Students in one building usually grow together and hang out with one another.
All events on campus are popular, although tey are popular with different crowds. Athletes tend to all support other athletes, but tons of students go to their games. As for CAB events, a large mix of students attend those. Speakers are usually attended by Greeks and athletes, because they are mandated to go. Theater also has a large array of random attendents, including lots of students outside of ULV.
A lot of students who go to ULV tend to date outside of ULV, seeing as how it's so small. However, what I've noticed is that students who date within ULV tend to have long lasting relationships.
I met my closest friends through dorming my first year, being in a sorority, working on campus, and sports.
If I'm awake at 2AM, I am probably watching TV at my apartment with my boyfriend, or out with my sisters.
Traditions we have include commuter days, (events that cater to commuters), an easter egg hunt, undie runs, LaVernaPalooza (A big-name artist concert), soakfest (a large outdoor water fest), and quite a few others.
People party almost every weekend, but it really depends on who you hang out with. If you know people in every group at ULV, it is very easy to find a party every weekend. However, every group doesn't party every weekend.
Greek life is very prevalent on campus, and a lot of the Greek students hold other leadership positions, mainly because they have friends who are already involved in them and they are able to get inside information.
Last weekend I was studying for finals almost the entire weekend.
On a Saturday, I can go to my sisters' house and sit in the jacuzzi with them, then go inside and watch a scary movie or make some dinner.
Off campus, I usually sleep because I spend almost all my time on campus.
