Fraternity & Sorority Life at Trinity University serves as a home-away-from-home for about 24% of the undergraduate student population. Being in a fraternity or sorority at Trinity provides opportunities for leadership development, alumni networking, service to the Trinity and San Antonio communities, and creating lifelong friendships. Unlike most fraternity & sorority communities, seven of the eight fraternities and all seven sororities are local. That is, these groups were started at Trinity by Trinity students. The fraternity & sorority community has a rich history at Trinity, with some groups dating back over 75 years ago while others have recently joined the community in the past five years.
The Greek community is self-governed with Greek Council serving as the governing body for all of the social fraternities and sororities. There are several student-run sub-committees of Greek Council that oversee many aspects of Greek Life: Recruitment, New Member Orientation, Standards of Excellence, Judicial, Service, and Campus-wide Programming.
Formed from the rich history of each individual organization, the Greek Alumni Advisory Council (GAAC) was formed in 2009-2010 to promote, maintain, and sustain the well-being of the Greek community at Trinity University. GAAC works closely with the Trinity University Alumni Association through the National Alumni Board Fraternity and Sorority Committee, to foster a close-knit environment for all Greek members. Thanks to the work of the GAAC, Trinity University's Greek organizations now utilize both alumni and faculty advisors. Fraternity and Sorority Life staff has developed advisors resources for use by all advisors to assist current students.
