Though a Greek system does not exist on CLU’s campus, residence hall camaraderie, weekly campus events, and clubs and organizations produce an active social scene and an intimate community of students. Students often create close bonds with roommates and neighbors in their respective residence halls. Resident assistants of each hall hold events with other halls, like a "dinner and a movie" night, or hold competitions against other halls, like hall flag football. Campus and club events also bring students together based on their mutual interests. Events like "Rock the Campus" gather students for a night of good music and friends, and club events like "Las Posadas" draw out students interested in participating in a Mexican tradition.
While the lack of a Greek system eliminates social clichés and establishes a tight-knit atmosphere among all students, some students would rather CLU have fraternities and sororities. Many students go off campus and spend weekends at other universities with Greek systems to experience the chaos of frat parties and exclusiveness of sorority sisters. There have been attempts by CLU students to create clubs that resemble fraternities and sororities, yet these ideas have not been successful with the student government and CLU.
