If someone were to walk up to a student at the University of the Ozarks and ask them about “Greek life," that student would probably look at the person confused and say, “What Greek life? Who needs it here?” With 50 different organizations and each meeting about once to multiple times a month, students on campus are deeply involved with activities outside of academics, so Greek life isn't really a necessity, nor a desire from students.
Fraternities and sororities give students a reason to be permanently separated from others. "Unity among diversity" is one of Ozarks’ mottos. With the various organizations offered, the campus creates unity through students making friendships and accepting cultural and social differences. Every organization has a special outlet for current students, and new social clubs are continuously being created each year. The University of the Ozarks tries very hard to promote student-driven ideas to make the campus environment a better place.
