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.

Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Greek Life at the University of North Texas is to enhance student development through membership in Greek organizations. Students are encouraged to emphasize academic excellence, philanthropic participation, personal development, and social development. We strive to create a unified campus through positive relations with administration, faculty, and all Greek and non-Greek student organizations. Through these endeavors, the Office of Greek Life strives to complement the mission of the University of North Texas.

  • Greek Life has been an integral part of UNT since 1952.
  • In 2011, members of UNT Greek organizations logged 21,152 hours of community service.
  • In 2011, fraternities and sororities at UNT raised over $90,000 for local and national charities.
  • The all Greek GPA is consistently higher than the non-Greek GPA.
  • Both the fraternity and sorority new members consistently have a higher GPA than the all freshmen male/female GPA.
  • 9 of the last 12 Student Body Presidents are members of Greek organizations.
  • 10 of the last 12 Homecoming Queens and Kings have been Greek.
  • In 2011, approximatel 750 men and women joined our Greek community.

The Greek community at North Texas strives to promote the following principles:

  • Academics
  • Leadership
  • Personal Development
  • Service

These core values guide our everyday way of life. Greek Life provides an opportunity to grow as an individual, but within an environment of others who share your commitment to the founding principles of your organization. We firmly believe that a Greek experience at its best can have a significant positive impact on a student during his or her collegiate years and after college as well.
