Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When it comes to Greek life, Oakwood is not the place to go. There are unofficial fraternities and sororities such as Omega, the Sapphires, and the Rubies, but these groups are not supported by Oakwood University. Although Greek organizations are not permitted on campus, one may find some recruits on campus. On busy days like Alumni Weekend, these groups take advantage of the lack of surveillance.

It is advised that students do not join these groups. There on can even be discipline according to the Oakwood University handbook. Oakwood promotes the idea that we are a big church family, and there is no need for a fraternity or a sorority. This does not mean that there are no students at Oakwood who join fraternities and sororities, though. There will always be students who break the rules.
