Fraternity and Sorority Life Community Overview

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 bonds of friendship.

Accomplishments of the Greek Community

 

At the end of the 2016-2017 academic year, the Creighton Fraternity and Sorority Life Community had participated in over 25,800 hours of community service and donated over $207,300 to charitable organizations.
