3 College Senior

Greek Life: Low key and small groups but great if you join.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There aren't any Greek housing opportunities on campus or available for the school but they all usually get an on-campus apartment together and unnoficially use that as their Greek housing.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It's easy to get involved in Greek life if you want to, but it's not the top choice for a lot of students. You don't have to be in Greek life in order to have friends or have fun.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life doesn't tower over other groups and organizations on campus as one of the better things to do at Hartford but it is definitely a prominent part of campus life. Non Greeks are indifferent towards the Greeks and often they interact together.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Joining my sorority was a geat experience! Meeting people from all different backgroungs, interests, major, etc. made it worthwhile. I never felt alone and always had a friend to go anywhere/study with. I know for certain these ladies will be in my life forever.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Greek organizations are a very big part of the University of Hartford community—it is very difficult to meet someone who is not in Greek life. There are numerous fraternities and sororities on campus, so it is hard to miss its members because they are usually dressed in their organization’s gear.

There are more than a dozen sororities and fraternities based on campus, and students also pledge local chapters of multicultural Greek organizations, which are not based on campus. The beginning of each semester is a very busy time for the Greeks because this is when they recruit new members (called “rush”). The Greek organizations also hold several social events during the year for its members. In general, the Greeks take themselves and their organizations very seriously and many usually only associate with other members in their respective organizations. There is a lot of Greek pride at the University of Hartford, and there’s an organization for anyone interested in going Greek.
