Although the movie Animal House and its comedic portrayal of Greek life on campus was at least partially based on Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, some of the top schools for fraternities are actually based in Tennessee.

The Volunteer State is evidently hospitable to formal brotherhood societies, as it is home to two of the top five schools in the nation for percentage of fraternity enrollment. Dartmouth, where 48 percent of male students enrolled in fraternities in fall 2011, is 10th on the top 10 list.

At the 951 ranked college and universities that reported fraternity participation data to U.S. News in a 2012 survey, an average of 8.1 percent of the male, degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in fall 2011 were members of a fraternity.

The average fraternity membership at the top 10 schools for male Greek life participation was much higher: 68.9 percent. The list has a very different look from the 2011 version. The second school this year, for instance—Lyon College in Arkansas—was nowhere to be seen on last year’s top 10 list.

Welch College in Tennessee has a whopping 98% of their male students as members of a Frat. I wonder if the other 2% get any love on campus?
