Fraternities

The Greek system at Creighton University is centered on creating well-rounded individuals. Greek students are involved in all aspects of campus including: philanthropy, leadership, scholarship, and social. Creighton University does not recognize or register any Greek houses; however certain chapters have houses in which many Greeks live. The lack of houses does not deter from an effective Greek system with strong ties of friendship and brotherhood.
