Most of the Greek organizations at IUPUI emphasize scholarship, leadership, philanthropic service, and social development. Because there are no actual fraternity or sorority houses on campus, these Greek organizations tend to stay on task with service, development, and leadership. Partying with these groups is not something that students generally do. Instead, they get involved with them and do service projects like the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, or they attend events hosted by the organizations.
Greek life, in the traditional sense, is definitely lacking at IUPUI, but the focus on professionalism is very beneficial to the students that get involved in Greek organizations. For example, students can network with other students on a strictly professional basis in professional fields such as law and business. It is almost certain that they go out and interact socially with one another, having drinks or dinner, but house parties and traditional hazing is not an aspect of Greek life at IUPUI.
