The Greek system provides plenty of opportunities to develop leadership skills, enhance academic knowledge, and meet interesting people. With philanthropy events, formals, study sessions, and other social activities, there is always lots going on in the Greek community!

Every fraternity and sorority offers its members an unforgettable university experience. However, each one is unique, providing the opportunity for everyone to find their home within the Greek community.
