About Greek Life
Since 1952, the University of North Texas Greek community has been a viable and integral part of campus life. With four councils consisting of 41 fraternities and sororities, our Greek community offers a unique and lifelong involvement experience. Membership in a Greek organization can be one of the most significant experiences for a college student. The value of Greek Life for students who choose to participate is the melding of almost every segment of the campus community into one cohesive program. Greek Life promotes the experience of self-governance, leadership development, academic achievement, community service, social opportunities and friendship.
