3 College Senior

Greek Life: The Greek life is somewhat prevalent on campus, but nothing like you would see in bigger universities. Greeks are usually very nice and aren't stuck up.

2 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life individuals will walk around campus as if they are gods…however, most that join, are not very intellectual individuals or are involved in majors that require so much.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not many students know about Greek life at our school. I didn't know it existed until the 3 months into my second semester.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The sororities and fraternities are only known between them. I have seen them do fundraising and trying to participate in other campus activities but I believe that is not effective when it comes to draw attention to their actions and beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at UTEP doesn't really stand out, but there are festivals and social gatherings that are announced occasionally throughout the semester.

Greek life on campus is a great opportunity for students. UTEP has some of the most popular fraternities and sororities in the nation available to students. Although the percentage of students in Greek organizations is slim, the students who participate have a life-changing experience. It is easy to see that students in the Greek system are proud of the choice they made to join. Every now and then, you will see members of fraternities and sororities working at philanthropy events or throughout the city fulfilling community service hours. UTEP also holds an annual Greek Week where fraternities and sororities compete to get the number-one spot on campus. It's really entertaining to watch.

However, there is a downside: UTEP does not currently approve of having a housing system on campus. Greek housing in UTEP has perished, but the Greek system and its individuals are working hard to earn a right to have a Greek housing system. Aside from all of the stereotypical judgement, fraternities and sororities are nothing like what is portrayed in movies such as "Animal House." An experience in a Greek system allows students to further their skills in leadership, responsibility, and academics.
