Fraternity and Sorority Life
Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is a community of passionate and hardworking men and women who have joined organizations to be involved on campus with people who will share common bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood.
Our FSL community promotes the values of:
UTEP’s Greek community provides opportunities for members to develop their leadership skills, excel in the classroom, give back to their community and find a welcoming place to call their home away from home. Members of Fraternity and Sorority Life are leaders both on campus and within the greater El Paso and UTEP community. Our members consistently achieve higher academic standings than their peers while participating in an array of other campus organizations and events. Furthermore, fraternity and sorority members donated thousands of dollars to their philanthropies and charitable organizations and participated in countless hours of community service.
If you are interested in joining a fraternity or sorority, we encourage you to look around our Webster to determine which council (IFC, MGC or PHC) is right for you!
Make the most of your college experience and GO GREEK!
The Four Pillars
The four pillars were created to model what the mission and ideals of FSL at UTEP are. The men and women of FSL have goals to create an experience that focuses on building skills that will be transferable beyond their college years.
Many FSL members hold leadership positions not only within their chapters but also within Student Government and other organizations on and off campus. Individual chapters and the Student Engagement & Leadership Center provide several leadership opportunities and programs for members to develop their leadership skills.
FSL students recognize that their education is the primary purpose of attending UTEP. Fraternities and sororities sustain this commitment through high levels of collective academic achievement and dedication to helping each member reach their individual academic potential. Each organization has a minimum GPA requirement for its members. Consistently, the overall GPA in the FSL community has exceeded campus averages.
Fraternities and sororities are recognized for their philanthropic work and service to the community. Each individual chapter and council has their own philanthropy and/or service initiative that they commit their time to. FSL also participates in Greek Day of Service as an all-Greek initiative to give back to UTEP and Project Move to give back to the greater El Paso community.
Unity is modeled through the brotherhood/sisterhood values these organizations were built on. Greek letter organizations were traditionally founded to create a safe space for students in their college years who want to better themselves professionally, academically all while sharing this experience with people who share their same values. Membership in any Greek chapter extends past your undergraduate years as you create the lifelong bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. Our Greek community provides a fun and safe place for members to network, engage and have fun with their brothers/sisters.
