2 College Junior

Greek Life: In my 2 years of attending this college i have been approached once about joining greek life. I refused the first time because i was a fresshman and wanted to see the other option that might come my way. Since this invitation i have had no other invitations which is rather uphalding. I would say that the openness of greek life around campus should be broader and more open to new people and new ideas.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't for me. I've met a lot of the sorority girls and they're not the sweetest bunch of people.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I have several friends who went Greek, but I did not. They don't treat me any different and really don't care that I decided to not go Greek. Being Greek is a bigger deal to the Greeks than it is to the non-Greeks. Many Greeks live on campus, however there are some houses that are technically off-campus but right across the street.

College Senior

Greek Life: I dont know i never paid attention to what greek life is on the UCO campus

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not a member of any sorotity, so I couldn't really tell you what it's like. I'm sure they have more fun and are really enjoying the college experience. I, on the other hand, am really just here to get my degree.

What usually comes to mind when you think of college life? Greek life! UCO is home to a number of sororities and fraternities, with Greek houses scattered around the outskirts of the campus. Students join these organizations for several reasons, including being a part of a national organization, meeting new friends, experiencing Greek life, getting scholarships, gaining leadership experience, becoming an active participant in the local community, and exploring advancement opportunities for their careers.

Greek life is an active element on the UCO campus, and this is evident since there is an annual campus-wide celebration called Stampede Week that invities the entire UCO community to get involved in campus-sponsored activities, such as entertainment shows and family events. With year-round events dedicated to Greek life and so many Greek members, going Greek is a great idea at UCO.
