CHAPTER LIFE Saying goodbye to friends and family can certainly be an overwhelming process. The University of South Carolina will soon become your new home away from home during your college years. Greek life offers life-long friendships and cherished memories. During recruitment week, you will learn about the unique differences and characteristics that set each of these chapters apart. Recruitment week will pose many difficult decisions so remember to keep an open mind and base your decisions about each individual chapter on your own opinions and preferences. There is also the possibility that you might like and feel at home at many of the different chapters. All Greek chapters on the USC campus emphasize the importance of a diverse environment for its members. There will be no discrimination based on religious preferences, race, creed, age, disability, or national origin. The presence of various cultures within each chapter allows for a broad and meaningful experience. Greek letter organizations at the University of South Carolina are recognized for the purposes of providing students with a small group living and learning experience, facilitating maturation, growth in the areas of scholarship, personal and leadership development, campus and community service involvement, and the clarification of values. Being a part of the Greek community makes a large school feel smaller. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of service projects, study sessions, and date functions.
