Why Go Greek?

The University of Delaware is proud to have a large and diverse fraternity and sorority community on campus. At the end of the Spring 2012 semester, our community had more than 3,200 members, which is approximately 20% of the undergraduate population at the University of Delaware.

Many people are aware of our larger events such as Homecoming, Air Band, Step Shows, and Greek Week. However, that is only a small part of what it means to be a Blue Hen Greek. Members of fraternities and sororities are connected all through campus. We serve as Orientation Leaders, members of SGA, UDance Executives, Resident Assistants, Blue Hen Ambassadors, and are involved in a variety of other Registered Student Organizations. We value leadership, and can be found participating in the Blue Hen Leadership Program as well as attending conferences for our national organizations.

We value service and support organizations such as the B+ Foundation, Children's Miracle Network, The Ronald McDonald House, and the Make a Wish Foundation. Every Greek organization on this campus has a larger cause that they support in order to give back to the community.

Fraternity men and sorority women share a special bond. Your brothers and sisters will share experiences that shape your life and shape how you view others. Fraternity and Sorority means knowing that whatever happens to you, you will always have your brothers and sisters to support you. These people will share some of the most memorable times you will experience in college. In addition, alumni of fraternities and sororities exist throughout the entire world. These people can become valuable assets as you transition out of college.

Finally, a Fraternity or Sorority is something to believe in. Each has traditions and principles that have been around, in many cases, for over one hundred years. You will experience the same rituals and learn the same secrets that your brothers and sisters experienced decades before. When you leave the University of Delaware, your chapter will still be there and you will be forever Greek. Being in a fraternity or sorority is not just something you do in college; it is a lifetime commitment. Check out our website for more information, and feel free to contact us with any questions.
