Greek life is a great way to get involved on campus. It not only helps you forge lasting friendships, but also introduces you to a wide range of activities and organizations.
Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations made up of students with similar interests who live within the bonds of ritual, brotherhood and sisterhood, and common goals.
Women’s fraternities are referred to as sororities. Fraternities and sororities are referred to as Greek Letter organizations because their names are combinations of Greek letters. These letters serve as a reminder of the values of the group.
The bonds between a Greek organization’s members are created through ritual in which all members participate. These rituals are almost always secret, but based on common principles such as knowledge, truth, friendship and honor. These principles are often found in the motto and creed of the specific Greek organization.
In addition to rituals, Greek organizations work to integrate and instill these principles in their members through all their activities and daily life.
TU’s Fraternities and Sororities
The University of Tulsa has 14 chapters of fraternities and sororities that are part of national organizations. They are overseen not only by local leaders and The University of Tulsa, but also by their national headquarters.
Our chapters stress the importance of scholarship, leadership and service, and live up to the high standards set forth by their founding members.
