The University of Missouri is home to one of the most dynamic Greek communities in the United States. Currently there are almost 7,400 students at Mizzou affiliated with 57 social Greek letter organizations. The Greek community at Mizzou represents 26% of the total population of students at the university. Being a member of the Greek community has helped many students adapt to the scholastic and social challenges posed by life at a large university. Many members of our Greek community express a sense of connection with members of their organization as well as others outside of the Greek community. In addition to finding a home away from home, members of our Greek community gain valuable leadership skills, raise money for charities, volunteer countless hours of service, and frequently exceed the all campus average GPA. Students involved in Greek organizations have many opportunities to showcase their hidden talents as well. Whether it’s dancing, singing, stepping, intramural sports, planning major events, or engaging in social initiatives students involved in fraternities and sororities have plenty of opportunities to explore their extracurricular talents.
