Greek Life: The Greek life on campus definitely adds to the college experience. They host quite a few events ranging from parties to panels that help students grow as adults and in their academics. The available Greek life on campus includes the Divine 9 in addition to other academic fraternities and sororities. Students revere Greeks to a degree, they're respected for their history, what they do on campus and their family bond.

Greek Life: Greek life is extremely big at Howard University. It is even bigger than athletics. You will see more people at a Alpha probate than you will at a Howard football game. I would probably be at the Alpha probate, too.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Since it was the birthplace of many Greek organizations, it is safe to say that Howard University is the epicenter of HBCU Greek life. Through various events such as first Fridays, probates, school events, and parties, the public is able to see the dedication, commitment, and bond the organizations have. It is not hard to spot members of Greek organizations on campus—they either have a folder, key chain, backpack, or item of clothing with their specific letters or logo on it. Former chapter members and "old heads" have been known to come back for events and parties throughout the course of the year.
