Greek Council is an organization dedicated to maintaining a unified Greek community at the University of Waterloo. It consists of four fraternities and three sororities. We regularly plan social and philanthropic events, while striving to ensure academic success of our members. Our Greek organizations each provide a great way to meet new people, develop leadership skills, and give back to the community. UW Greek Council can help connect you with your ideal fraternity or sorority to enrich your university experience.
"I joined Greek Council in my second year in University and I wish I joined it sooner. It's a great place to connect with people who share similar values and get to know people from across all disciplines at Waterloo."
"What I love about Greek Life at Waterloo is that it gives you the chance to get involved in many different areas at once. From philanthropy work to leadership development, there's such a broad range of activities to be a part of. Having these experiences have helped me grow to be a better person."
"There are many opportunities associated with joining Greek Council. From the large international network to charity work and academic support, Greek Council is the all-around student organization. I joined because of the small community. The Greek community at UW is made up of 300+ students, which provides a family-like environment within a big university. Between all the leadership roles available and alumni there for support, Greek Life provides a foundation for students to become a better version of their old self."
"I joined Greek Council because I wanted to expand my social network and be more involved on campus. Being far from home, it was difficult meeting a group of diverse individuals from other programs and faculties. From this, I gained a home away from home. Being a part of Greek life, it has helped me a grow as an individual by getting me out of my comfort zone to meet other people outside my program."
"Joining Greek Council was one of the best decisions I have ever made! It's so much more than just fun parties, good grades, cute outfits, and funny pictures. The girls in my sorority are my sisters who support me, are they for me, and truly care for me. Many of my best friends are a part of Greek Council and I would be lost without them! I joined in my 1A term and look forward to many more exciting terms ahead!"
"Greek Life is much more than what people expect it to be. For me, it was a family away from home. It has been a great way to connect with people I wouldn't otherwise have known. It has presented me with great opportunities and to help me grow as a person. Joining Greek Council was one the best choices I ever made."
"I joined Greek Life because I wanted to become more involved at Waterloo. It’s allowed me to meet amazing and inspiring people outside of my program who all have different experiences and backgrounds."
