Greek life, or Greek letter organizations, fraternities and sororities that function as social organizations at colleges and universities. Membership is typically gained during undergraduate school, but continues for life. Fraternities and sororities host philanthropic activities, networking events for members and alumni, social functions, and formal dinners throughout the academic year. Doane Greek life is the largest organization on campus. Greek groups are local chapters, meaning they are unique to Doane’s campus.
