FAQ’s:

What is a Greek Organization?
A Greek organization is a group of individuals of similar interests bonded together by common goals and aspirations. These bonds are created through rituals in which all members participate. Rituals are based on common principles such as honor, friendship, scholarship, community, truth and knowledge, to name a few. Each group also referred to as fraternities for men and Sororities for women works to instill these ideals in their members through their everyday activities.
It is referred to as a Greek organization because the name consists of Greek letters. This is true for most of our chapters but we do have fraternities and sororities that do not have Greek letters as part of their official name. Fraternity is a name applied to all Greek organizations, but specifically men's groups, while Sorority is the name applied only to women's Greek organizations. On UNC Charlotte’s campus, approximately 5% of all students are members of a Greek organization.

Why should my student Go Greek?
Membership in a Greek organization is a life-changing experience for the men and women who choose to join. Chapter members develop a unique bond of brotherhood and sisterhood while sharing their values and goals. These friendships last beyond the collegiate years and are nurtured by alumni/alumnae activities and networking programs that provide opportunities for continued camaraderie, service, and personal development.
A recent study completed at the University of Missouri showed that membership in Greek letter organizations increased the likelihood that students would return to college their second year and remain through graduation. Choosing to become part of a Greek letter organization will allow your son or daughter to meet new people and develop a support network in their new environment away from home.
