    Greek Life at UC

    At the University of Charleston, the Greek community provides its members with opportunities for growth and excellence in academics, leadership, service learning, and social arenas. Currently, Greeks represent 5% of the student body and continue to prosper. The University of Charleston has three active sororities and one active fraternity.

    Overseeing Greek Life on campus is Greek Council, the governing board that oversees Greek Life. Greek Council actively promotes Greek Unity by providing educational, social, community service, and fundraising opportunities.

    As a member of Greek Life you are held to high academic standards and the Order of Omega, a national honorary society, acknowledges Greeks that represent the top 20% on campus.
