The Greek organizations are a very big part of the University of Hartford community—it is very difficult to meet someone who is not in Greek life. There are numerous fraternities and sororities on campus, so it is hard to miss its members because they are usually dressed in their organization’s gear.
There are more than a dozen sororities and fraternities based on campus, and students also pledge local chapters of multicultural Greek organizations, which are not based on campus. The beginning of each semester is a very busy time for the Greeks because this is when they recruit new members (called “rush”). The Greek organizations also hold several social events during the year for its members. In general, the Greeks take themselves and their organizations very seriously and many usually only associate with other members in their respective organizations. There is a lot of Greek pride at the University of Hartford, and there’s an organization for anyone interested in going Greek.
