Greek Life

Parents & Families

Sammy's HeadshotDear Parents,

It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as the Vice President of Student Affairs, Vice Provost and Dean of Students  and work with the men and women of UT’s fraternities and sororities. Greek students demand more of themselves and strive for excellence both in and out of the classroom. Greek students value more than just a social experience throughout college; they value community service, academics, brotherhood/sisterhood, and campus involvement.

It’s not easy being Greek. Fraternity and sorority members must work hard as they are accountable to more people and higher standards, and they are challenged in ways that other students cannot understand. Greeks are expected to live by traditional ideals and to lead their brothers and sisters to attain excellence.

I sincerely believe that your student can be a better person through membership in one of our fraternities and sororities. They will become more involved on campus and in community service. I know that he or she will find a more supportive environment in studies, in social life, and in personal development. I hope you will encourage your student to explore Greek Life at UT.
