Greek Storm Weekend
Utica University is proud of the rich Greek life available on campus. Though specific sororities and fraternities have come and gone over the years, we in the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Student Transitions recognize that these organizations help foster deep senses of community and belonging, and offer a place for much-needed emotional support, personal growth, collaboration, and leadership opportunities.
Data compiled by the North American Interfraternity Conference also shows that retention and graduation rates are higher among sorority and fraternity students.
In honor of this, Utica University is holding an inaugural weekend-long event called Greek Storm. This weekend of events aims to explore the past, present, and future of Greek Life at the University, and give students an opportunity to learn more about what Greek organizations have to offer.
Please see below for a detailed calendar of events and necessary registration information.
