The fall semester kicked off with energy and enthusiasm for University of North Texas fraternities and sororities. The Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life hosted "Meet and Greek" as the first event, swiftly followed by "Mean Green Fling," pledge week, and then bid day.
Despite the whirlwind of activities, UNT's fraternity and sorority community managed to find time for acts of kindness. Members of Delta Sigma Phi prepared gift baskets for each National Panhellenic Council sorority, extending their best wishes for a successful fall semester. Additionally, Kappa Sigma commemorated the 9/11 tragedy by treating the UNT Police Department to pizza on September 11, ensuring that we "Never Forget" the events of 22 years ago.
In September, the CFSL led the charge in hosting the national Hazing Prevention Week. They launched the week with an event where community members enjoyed donuts and collectively pledged that "These Hands Don't Haze." The week also featured informative lunch-and-learn sessions, a panel discussion, and the Freeze Out Hazing event at UNT's Library Mall.
On Sunday, October 1, universities from across the Dallas/Fort Worth area joined forces with students to organize the inaugural DFW FLS Leadership Conference. UNT was well-represented with 15 students from all four Councils in attendance. The Leadership Conference served as a valuable opportunity for students to connect with the broader DFW fraternity and sorority life community and share knowledge and experiences.
Greek life at UNT fosters enduring connections among its members and with the university. UNT currently acknowledges the presence of 39 national fraternities and sororities, each offering its unique and valuable contributions to the campus community.
