The University of St. Thomas, along with many other Catholic universities, does not have a Greek system. Because UST is such a small school, there would only be enough students and funding for a very small number of houses. Many students find "brotherhood" or "sisterhood" in religious groups, like Knights of Columbus or Legion of Mary, and team sports like rugby, volleyball, or soccer. Although there is no Greek system promoting leadership and philanthropy, there are many other groups on campus that focus on leadership roles and charity projects.
Students that come to UST with an interest in Greek life can find relief in the fact that the University of Houston is only a short drive away. The UH fraternities always welcome UST women at their parties, but men wishing to experience Greek life should consider joining a fraternity at UH. Students from other universities are not technically allowed to join Greek organizations at UH, but you may do so through an underground process. You must know people in the fraternity you want to join (the fraternities are more welcoming towards nonaffiliated men at their parties during Rush at the beginning of each semester). If a Greek letter organization gives you a bid, you will be registered as part of the national chapter. Although you will not be able to live in the house, you still get the Greek experience by hanging out and partying with your brothers and sisters at UH.
