Are you interested in giving back to the community? What about finding lifelong friends? Or developing leadership skills and becoming a part of a national network or support? Then joining a fraternity or sorority may be for you!
Fraternity and sorority life at UCO has been around for more than 60 years with more than 20 organizations that are a part of the Panhellenic (NPC), Inter-fraternity (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic (NPHC) or Unified Greek councils. Joining Greek Life allows you to participate in service, philanthropy and civic engagement; helps you achieve academic excellence in your journey toward a degree; builds leadership skills; and, develops relationships among each organization and across the Fraternity and Sorority Life community. The basis of fraternities and sororities is fostering brotherhood and sisterhood while helping each member develop their individual potential.
Being in a sorority or fraternity can also prepare you for success during college and after graduation. Research shows that those in Greek organizations are 20% more likely to graduate. Plus, 85% of Fortune 500 CEOs are members of Greek organizations. *
