Greek Life: I had the chance to see some Greek clubs, but honestly, I am not a Greek person. Of course, they offer sororities and fraternities but I think it's easy to get into

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is in school, it has precense but no like other schools. Greek life is just like other group of people who just seen on certain days, they dont do parties but they do community service. It influence somehow in school, but I think is not so ¨important¨.

3 College Freshman

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Greek life on campus is a great opportunity for students. UTEP has some of the most popular fraternities and sororities in the nation available to students. Although the percentage of students in Greek organizations is slim, the students who participate have a life-changing experience. It is easy to see that students in the Greek system are proud of the choice they made to join. Every now and then, you will see members of fraternities and sororities working at philanthropy events or throughout the city fulfilling community service hours. UTEP also holds an annual Greek Week where fraternities and sororities compete to get the number-one spot on campus. It's really entertaining to watch.

However, there is a downside: UTEP does not currently approve of having a housing system on campus. Greek housing in UTEP has perished, but the Greek system and its individuals are working hard to earn a right to have a Greek housing system. Aside from all of the stereotypical judgement, fraternities and sororities are nothing like what is portrayed in movies such as "Animal House." An experience in a Greek system allows students to further their skills in leadership, responsibility, and academics.
