Fraternities and sororities thrive at UFan because Greek organizations
serve to enhance the college experience. Greeks at UFan have been
shown to be one of the most active niches of the student body across
a wide academic and co-curricular spectrum. Greek life provides
open doors to meeting other students, interacting with upperclassmen
who become role models, and learning of opportunities for leadership.
Across the boards, Greeks are involved and active! Greeks write
articles for the school paper. Greeks sit on the Student Senate.
Greeks are involved in all aspects of student life. Going Greek
at UFan does not mean a risk in sacrificing other opportunities�
it only means a risk in sacrificing boredom and complacency!
The real reason that Greek organizations thrive-especially at UFan-is
friendship. Fraternities and sororities provide students with the
chance to meet amazing individuals and form life-long friendships.
At UFan, Greek affiliation is a unique chance to be involved with
a strong, continuous community over one's student career. By and
large, Greek alumni report that their strongest affiliation with
Stanford is through their friends from their Greek chapters.
Greek activities at UFan are primarily located in "Fraternity row" on
