Greek Life

Greek Life


Do you remember the mad dash across campus, up Cardiac Hill, and through the Coates Student Center plaza to the fountain? Eclectic outfits, personalized jerseys handed down across generations, and contagious laughter are all part of the experience? 


Your support creates lifelong bonds, support networks, and longstanding traditions of service and fellowship for these students.


Now accounting for nearly 25 percent of the undergraduate student population, Trinity University's Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) - with seven sororities and seven fraternities - creates purposeful and value-driven experiences through the adoption of four pillars that represent four crucial aspects of student life on campus:


1.) Scholarship, 2.) Service, 3.) Leadership, and 4.) Camaraderie. Each member of the FSL community is expected to live out these pillars day in and day out.
