Fraternities and sororities at UConn are a way for students to acclimate to college life, get involved on campus and in the community, and meet a lot of new people. However, besides the T-shirts members wear, non-Greek students won’t notice the Greek life on campus. Rush, Homecoming, and Greek Week are major fraternity and sorority events, but other than that, if you’re not a member, you probably won’t know anything about them.

The Greek scene is big for those in it, with many events and opportunities. But Greek life isn’t an overwhelming facet of UConn. Members and non-members coexist nicely. At the beginning of each semester, there is a Greek involvement fair where students can learn about each fraternity and sorority, and find the right one for them. There’s no pressure to join—Greek life is not for everyone. There are fraternity and sorority houses for members to live in, as well, creating a tight-knit community on the edge of campus.
