The six Greek organizations are made up of three fraternities: Delta Sigma Phi, Lambda Chi Alpha, and Tau Kappa Epsilon, and three sororities: Delta Delta Pi, Delta Zeta, and Phi Omega. All of these chapters are a part of the Greek Council, which is a group whose purpose is to develop and maintain Greek Life and community relations at the highest level of accomplishment both on campus and within the greater community. These organizations, as part of the Greek Council, are guided by six core values: community, diversity, excellence, leadership, scholarship, and service.
Fraternity and Sorority Recruitment occur twice a year, once at the beginning of the fall semester for upper-class and transfer students, and once at the beginning of the spring semester for freshman, upper-class, and transfer students.
Philanthropy and Campus Involvement
These organizations are very active on campus, participating in campus events such as Homecoming, Greek Week, Family Weekend, and Alumni Weekend. Members of these organizations donate their time as well as raise money for the American Red Cross, St. Jude, March of Dimes, and Susan G. Komen, in addition to numerous local charities and foundations.
