Fraternity and Sorority Life is a partnership between the Dean of Students Office and The Holden Center. For over one hundred years, University of Oregon (UO) fraternities and sororities have played an active role in the campus community. The fraternity and sorority community is the largest student organization on campus. Membership provides a wealth of personal development through academic support, leadership activities, athletic recreation, social networking and community service programming.
Fraternities and sororities provide an environment that enhances learning experiences on campus and in the broader community. Many chapters reside in privately owned and operated houses off campus. Greek students strive to highlight the finest qualities amongst UO undergraduate men and women: scholarship, leadership, civic engagement and friendship.
The opportunity to become actively involved as a member of a fraternity or sorority can be among the most rewarding collegiate experiences. Some of the major Greek leadership programming includes: a national speakers series, attendance at national/regional conferences, and Greek Week. In addition, fraternity and sorority members engage in dozens of organizational leadership retreats and participate in a variety of philanthropic endeavors each year. The Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils, the UO Greek governing organizations, offer leadership opportunities that allow students to develop management and organizational skills, effective communication skills and conflict resolution skills among many others.
