Greek life logo

The University of Rio Grande has six active Greek organizations that focus on community service, friendship, and leadership. All Greek organizations are governed by the All-Greek Council. All Greek Council is the governing body of social Greek organizations at Rio Grande. AGC sponsors and encourages activities and functions that promote the intellectual, cultural, and social development of individual fraternity and sorority members as expressed in the goals of the University of Rio Grande, which leads to the strengthening and improvement of the member organizations.

We are a family founded on the principles of acceptance, community, and integrity. It is our mission to use these values as a platform for commitment to a better future for our sorority, surrounding community, and members as they navigate life.
