Greek Life

Why Go Greek?

Joining a fraternity or sorority at The University of Texas at Tyler is a great opportunity to get involved on campus, enhance your college education and hone your personal skills through leadership, scholarship and service, and form lifelong friendships.

Come learn more about all of the chapters and their recruitment processes during our tabling events, at "Meet the Greeks" on the Met Patio (outside the cafeteria) which traditionally occurs during the first week of the Fall semester. Be sure to follow @uttylergreeks on twitter and uttylergreeks on Instagram for the most up to date information on recruitment!

Leadership

Joining a fraternity or sorority is an excellent way to sharpen your leadership skills. Fraternity and sorority students are leaders by serving their organization as an executive board member, a committee member or chairperson. Greeks are also involved across campus as members of the Greek Week Steering Committee, Orientation Student Coordinators, Orientation Leader Team, Student Government Association and more!

Scholarship

Fraternity and sorority students are committed to excellence in scholarship. Each Greek organization sets a requirement for chapter members to maintain a certain GPA in order to remain active and participate in fraternity/sorority events.

Service

Fraternity and sorority students are committed to service toward their organization's national philanthropy and local community. Greek groups complete hundreds of hours of community service each semester and participate in Greekwide service projects during the annual Greek Week.

Community

Brotherhood and sisterhood in a fraternity and sorority community are strong bonds that tie together a diverse group of individuals through much more than just wearing the same letters. Once you are a member, you are a member for life. With alumni groups throughout the world, after graduation you can still enjoy brotherhood and sisterhood activities, and find an instant support group – no matter where you go.
