Greek Life at UT

Greek Life at The University of Toledo is comprised of 30 organizations. The organizations fall under four different umbrella organizations: the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC), and the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC). Fourteen of our Chapters are housed in McComas Village, which was built in 1990 to show University support for Greek organizations.

Students who are a part of the UT Greek Community are engaged in a plethora of service, leadership, academic, and social endeavors all around campus and throughout the Toledo community. A huge focus of the Greek Community is uniting the different councils as well as bringing together the campus as a whole through various programming efforts. Traditionally, students involved in Greek organizations hold more leadership roles on campus, perform more service hours, and get better grades than those students not affiliated with Greek organizations. Greek organizations also enjoy collaborating with each other and other campus organizations for opportunities of brotherhood, sisterhood, and socializing!
