To the reader:

As you may have noticed, the appearance and mission of this page has changed.  My previous topic was not generating enough information, and I went on a search for something more prominent, more enticing for a UA student to relate to- thus I arrived at Greek Life.  Greek institutions have been around for hundreds of years.  The first recognized fraternity was started at the College of William and Mary on December 5, 1776. before our country had even become its own nation. As the years passed, more fraternities and sororities started up new chapters, and today more than 1,500 Greek letter organizations exist around the country.  Greek Life has been an integral part in the college careers of hundreds of thousands of college students.  Countless business and world leaders have been part of these social organizations.  Since 1825, all but two Presidents and Vice Presidents serving in office have been a part of Greek Life.

Greek life has traveled to campus’ around the nation, including here at the University of Arizona.  Today, more than 50 fraternities and sororities are recognized on campus, all which are separated into four groups, The Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Panhellenic Association (PHC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the United Sorority and Fraternity Council (USFC).

Starting next week, a UA student with an international background will be profiled, giving a detailed history of their past, their experiences in Greek Life, and how the system is similar, or completely different than any system they may have had in the other country(ies) they have lived in.

If you have any students who have an international background and would like to see a profile piece about them, feel free to email me at wjrapp@email.arizona.edu.  Enjoy the page
