2 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know enough regarding the greek life at DU to give an accurate review.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't really get that involved in the Greek life on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I honestly am not familiar with the Greek scene at the University of Denver.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greel life is prevalent. Most Greek houses are off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Some fraternaties are notorious, but most of the sororities I think are pretty good. I am personally in a sorority and I love the friendships and sisterhood that I have been a part of. Greeks tend to hold a lot of fundraising events and the frats like to throw parties (basically every weekend). The housing is a little below par, however.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life is considerably prominent on DU's campus. Greeks sponsor a wide variety of events throughout the year, including everything from off-campus bar parties to community service events. Rush week, held in October, is a popular Greek tradition. Greek students hang banners, illustrate the campus with sidewalk chalk, and generally do all they can to recruit people to their particular houses. If you want to go Greek, rush is the best time to figure out which house is for you.

Most of the students involved in Greek life are enthusiastic and proud to be a part of it. On-campus parties sponsored by Greeks have steadily declined due to administration tightening up on-campus partying policies. Those not involved in Greek life might feel slightly annoyed or swept away by "Greek Speak," advertisements, and events around campus. But the Greek system at DU is not overly exclusive, and non-Greeks are welcome to attend bar parties and service activities.
