2014 Parents' Weekend Information
Fraternities and Sororities have been an integral part of the University of California, Los Angeles campus since the early 1920's. Today UCLA is home to more than 70 National and local Greek-letter organizations, which collectively constitute the largest membership-based and multi-faceted community on campus. Additionally, UCLA's fraternity and sorority organizations represent one of the largest and oldest Greek Communities on the West Coast.
Representing 15% of the student population, fraternity and sorority members are committed to their academics, volunteer time in the community, develop and strengthen leadership skills, form a campus and cultural support network, and have access to affordable housing on campus. Fraternities and Sororities have enhanced the lives of thousands of men and women since their inception. Explore our site and see what UCLA Greek Life has to offer.
Note: A National study finds Fraternity/Sorority membership may encourage students to stay in college and that Greek affiliation in College contributes positively to community involvement after graduation. Also reported, Greek-affiliated alumni are more satisfied with their social development during college than non-Greeks.
