The Greek community provides a variety of social opportunities. A balance between academics, campus involvement and social activities helps Greeks to become well-rounded and successful young men and women. One such activity enjoyed by all chapters is intramural sports. The IFC Fraternity Intramural league allows Greek members to enjoy friendly competition among chapters, and there's always plenty of interested people who will start up a team with you. The Intramural program runs throughout the academic year and there are many events from which to choose.
Other events throughout the year include a variety of social mixers that allow people to relax and meet new people. Mixers are often centered around a theme, such as rock decades or Hawaiian luaus, and allow fraternities and sororities to interact in a social setting. Many chapters have dances for all the members and their dates. Barn dances are popular ones, as well as formals. Chapters also hold retreats, which can include the entire membership, or just an associate membership class who want to strengthen their bonds. Retreats and road trips are a great way to get off campus and go explore the city and the beautiful Western Pennsylvania scenery.
Another great thing about being a member of a Greek organization is that no matter what campus, city, or state you may end up in, you will always have people there to welcome and embrace you. If you're visiting friends, or on vacation, you are always more than welcome to stop by your fellow chapter home that is in the area. Our doors are always open for one another. The Greeks foster a very supportive system, which will follow individuals throughout their lifetime.
Living in an environment with so many people who share your interests means that when you have free time, there's always something to do. Whether it's studying with a friend, going out for dinner, the movies, or to a concert in a park, there's always someone to go along with!
