Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Approximately 20 percent of Michigan students participate in Greek life. The Greek community is made up of four councils: the Panhellenic Association for sororities, the Multicultural Greek Council for multicultural organizations, the National Pan-Hellenic Council for African American organizations, and the Interfraternity Council for fraternities. Michigan is also home to a number of coed pre-professional fraternities, which offer resources, academic assistance, and social outlets for students with similar post-graduate goals.
Michigan's Greek community is certainly not just a social scene, nor is it the only social scene on campus. Some fraternities throw parties, which tend to be open to all students. Many Greek members live in their respective chapter houses by their sophomore year. Although certainly not necessary, members of the Greek community find that it is a great way to fulfill a well-rounded college experience: participating in community service, increasing your opportunities for leadership positions, and of course, making lifelong friends.
