The Fraternity and Sorority Life office plans and presents several programs and events every semester for our community. In addition to educational programs, we also provide our community with several opportunities to network and learn from one another with social and athletic opportunities/endeavors.
Additionally, the individual organizations will plan and present several programs and events of their own. These programs and events are usually open to the general University community, although once in a while, the organizations will host events that are closed.
On this page, we hope you glean some more information about some of the many opportunities we provide to our community.

national HAZING PREVENTION WEEK
National Hazing Prevention Week is observed on campuses and within organizations each year during the last week of September (or another time that is more convenient). Activities range from brown bag lunch discussions among faculty to movie or book discussions with students; training for organizational and team leaders, to the signing of anti-hazing pledges. Some plan an entire week of activities and programs and some simply plan one or two meaningful programs. Whatever you do, the important thing is to DO SOMETHING!
Every year, the Office of Community Standards partners with Fraternity and Sorority Life, Student Organizations, Campus Recreation, Apartment and Residence Life, Athletics, and others across campus to showcase a week of programming and education entitled National Hazing Prevention Week. The goal is to prevent hazing through strong educational efforts on campus and within all organizations.
Each spring, Order of Omega, the four governing councils, and the Fraternity and Sorority Life Office sponsors a week of competitive, philanthropic, and social events called "Greek Week." Coordinated and planned by undergraduate student leaders, it is a time to celebrate being Greek and show chapter pride with the entire UT Arlington fraternal community. Greek Week has traditionally occurred during the spring semester.
Greek 101 is a program specifically for new members in fraternities and sororities. The program focuses on what happens after you join a fraternity or sorority and how to uphold the values of your chapter while leaving a legacy for future generations. This program also gives new members a chance to interact with each other and create bonds with members in other organizations.
Greek 201 is a program that was created as a way to bring all the students in our community together once a semester to discuss an important risk management topic. Topics that have affected our community or that are trends in Higher Education are chosen each semester. This program is open to the entire UT Arlington community no exclusively fraternity and sorority students.
Movie nights feature a variety of hit and pre-home release films hosted by EXCEL Campus Activities each semester.
