Greek life offers the individual a unique opportunity for personal and interpersonal growth. The Greek system encourages scholastic achievement, good citizenship from its members, and provides opportunities for social growth and leadership in various campus organizations, as well as sponsors many campus, community, and philanthropic service projects. The opportunity to develop lifelong friendships is an added benefit to the Greek members.
The Rio Grande Greek system’s fraternity and sorority chapters are governed by the All Greek Council (AGC), an organization composed of representatives from each fraternity and sorority. There are ten social fraternities and sororities on campus. Membership is by invitation with each group sponsoring parties during a formal rush period to help acquaint students with the groups. Each group promotes scholarship, social activities, personal development, and service. The organizations are: Alpha Mu Beta, Delta Theta, Chi Omega Alpha, Lambda Omicron Psi, Alpha Chi Nu (Archon), Alpha Sigma Phi, Alpha Eta Omega, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Zeta Alpha Rho and Zeta Theta Chi. Rules concerning pledging can be obtained from the AGC Advisor.
