College campuses have many types of community on campus. Multi-ethnic student spaces, foreign language centers, gay friendly fraternities and sororities. For the more “mainstream,” they offer national organizations, fraternities and sororities, frat parties, dorms, all locations where fraternity and sorority activity ebbs and flows throughout the academic year.
Fraternity and sorority houses are located on campuses throughout the United States. The most important fraternity or sorority houses are at the four-year colleges. At most four-year schools, these houses typically feature a common living space and a common dining hall or fitness center. A few will feature fraternity or sorority specific housing, but the majority of fraternities and sororities use the common housing and dining halls.
Sororitas on campus are much different from the Greek system at four-year colleges. There are many sororities that specialize in sorority specific activities, not all of which are as common as Greek social life. Some sororities have their own specific residence hall or dormitory, while others will go to the University Dining Center (DCC) and share housing with other sorority members. Other sororities that do have their own dormitories have private housing within the house.
Many of these sorority houses and residence halls are located on the campus of larger universities. They are sometimes referred to as a sister university or sister chapter of a larger school. For example, there are Delta Sigma Theta sororities at the University of Maryland. Their sister chapter is in the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. These chapters have separate houses on their respective campuses, though sometimes will share access to one another’s.
Most fraternities and sororities are on the campus of smaller universities. In some cases, these chapters are on their own campus.
Some social groups that may be found on campus are sports teams. Depending on the university, students may choose to be active in sports or academic or even service clubs. There is always a sorority for those who are interested in volunteerism. or volunteer work. Students can be active in fraternal or sorority activities through volunteer jobs such as helping at a local soup kitchen, church or public school.
The sorority and fraternity of a student may also choose to have a specific social group or activities on campus. There is often a sorority chapter at the university’s official sorority house or an off-campus chapter of the national sorority. Each chapter may conduct a sorority fashion show, or host a sorority party. Each sorority or fraternity has its own colors and design.
There are many types of clubs that can be found on college campuses. At some universities, there may be frat houses, while others may have many clubs dedicated to one type of group. For example, frat houses may be dedicated to playing sports, while others may be dedicated to academics or religious activities. There is often a sorority dedicated to specific majors, while others may only be sorority specific.
Many students may attend events that are dedicated to a particular school or campus. Events may be planned by the school, by individual student groups or by the administrators or the university as a whole. For instance, a sorority may hold a meeting in order to discuss issues of membership.
The schools and universities will hold many different kinds of social events as well. Many of these events are held as part of their fundraising campaign. This includes concerts, dances, charity events, and any other type of event that may draw students together.
Many sorority houses and fraternities may have parties hosted in off-campus facilities where they can mingle with guests and enjoy a drink or two. These parties can include meals, dancing, singing and even games and competitions.
Sororities and fraternities may choose to hold a house party. This will typically be a getaway that allows its members to relax, eat and socialize. At this party, they may hold dances and dance.
