College Junior

Greek Life: There is a multi-cultural office on campus that caters to the various cultures and ethnicity on campus. There are people from the Middle East as well as from Europe, India, and other nations.

College Senior

Greek Life: UCCS attempts to have a Greek life, but is not successful. We have two sororities and two fraternities on campus, both of which are fairly easy to join, as long as you have the money to pledge. With such a small Greek life, we do not have any Greek houses. Again, UCCS in the past has been a commuter school and the Greek life is almost non-existent because of that.

Greek Life: Since I never lived on campus, I don't have a lot of experience with Greek Life. However, all of the sorority girls I have met in classes have been polite. I think they live in houses off campus but I'm not sure.

Greek Life: Most Greek life on campus is more of a club rather than a Greek organization. And most of the Greek organizations have a terrible reputation and ruin the reputation of Greeks all together. Kappa Sigma was kicked off campus due to issues they had internally and the members were disrespectful and stereotypical frat boys who give off a bad reputation. The sorority are not much better. Phi Sigma Sigma is one of the worst sorority I have witnessed in my college career. Their process of recruiting is bad in sense that they are not recruiting girls of character and respect and who would represent their sorority well but rather just recruiting to keep their numbers high so they can stay on campus. This creates issues because you have individuals who usually will give their organization a bad name. A majority of the girls in Phi Sigma Sigma do not like or support each other and sometimes try to undermine each other. That is why so many either quit or go Alum so they don't have to deal with the issues. Greek life is second only to football for creating money and drawing people to colleges. We don't have a football team and I wouldn't say we have much of a Greek life either.
