3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life on campus is not very huge.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: To be able to form part of a Greek sorority or fraternity in campus, its really hard because many require for you to have a high GPA, and its good to always hVe a high GPA. Some times for some students that semester might not had gone well and their GPA droped and then they dont get to join anymore. Also another issue is the cost, the monthly cost for joining kts almost $150dlls, and when you are a college students living in a dorm because you are a forter kid and working to be able to pay where you live at its an insane amount of money to pay for you to go partying and doing big events. Many can afford it because they have families and dont work but many of us cant.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: those in the Greek life seem happier than those who are not apart of the Greek life. They do volunteer and also have parties that can be quiet enjoyable.

1 College Student

Greek Life: Horrible. Hardly any chapters. Stupid drama for something that isn't even that great.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not involved but the people who are seem to get a lot out of the experience.

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.
