Mission

Greek Life at UC Irvine works with students to create an inclusive environment that challenges members to develop into leaders who uphold the values, oaths, and commitments of their collegiate fraternal organization at UC Irvine. Greek Life values ongoing relationships with alumni, volunteers, campus administrators, and the surrounding community in order to create meaningful and purposeful undergraduate experiences that foster a commitment to service and lifetime membership.

History

When UCI opened in 1965 there were no fraternities or sororities on campus.  By 1973, the Greek community was created with three fraternities and three sororities. Over 40+ years later Greek Life has grown to 49 fraternities and sororities and has a very large multicultural Greek population.  Currently 2,200+ undergraduate students belong to a fraternity/sorority.
