Fraternity & Sorority Life at Trinity University serves as a home-away-from-home for about 20% 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, six of the seven fraternities and all seven sororities are local. That is, these groups were started by Trinity students and exist only at Trinity. 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 three years.
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. The executive board of the GAAC works very closely with the Coordinator for Fraternity and Sorority Life and current undergraduate students, as well as other alumni to foster a close-knit environment for all Greek members. Thanks to the work of the GAAC and the Fraternity & Sorority Life staff, 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.
The Greek community is self-governed with Greek Council serving as the governing body for the 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, Campus-wide Programming.
