With 28 Greek organizations and nearly 40 percent of students involved in Greek life, fraternities and sororities definitely stake their claim at TCU. Most students do not feel pressured to join a Greek organization, though some feel it is vital in order to really take part in the social scene. The mix of national, local, and faith-based Greek organizations gives students a variety of options from which to choose. While Greek life is not for everyone, many students who are in a fraternity or sorority enjoy it.
You don’t have to be Greek to get along at TCU, but a Greek emphasis does prevail. The sororities and fraternities hold a ton of socials and each one has a specific fundraiser. Frats and sororities tend to distinguish social groups, but being Greek does not completely isolate students from the campus population.
