While USF appears to have many Greek colonies, the vast majority of fraternities and sororities on campus is service-based and/or academic-oriented. The socially based Greek groups are often affiliated with a particular culture or special interest, whereas only one of each fraternity and sorority is based solely on social interest. Since the University isn't particularly interested in having more social Greek groups, and there’s absolutely no pressure to join one, there's a blatant lack of interest in Greek life at USF. There are no designated houses on campus (or anywhere, for that matter)—just a random assortment of sweatshirts with Greek letters being worn to class, so most students are oblivious to any kind of Greek presence at school.
Though Greek life is hard to come by, designated fraternities and sororities maintain quite a bit of involvement in major campus events, like Homecoming, the annual Greek Games, a Thanksgiving potluck, a Christmas clothing drive, and quite a few mixers and socials. The annual USF Idol competition has become increasingly popular, what with the Greek Council focusing on promoting a stronger presence on campus. While the majority of students chooses not to participate in Greek life, there is still the opportunity to do so at USF, without the fear of being bombarded by it, like you might be at a larger university.
