Greek Life

Letters Today… Leaders Tomorrow

Deciding to go Greek can be one of the biggest and best decisions you make in life. Joining a fraternity or a sorority can be a great way to experience all that RSU has to offer.

Greek life encompasses fun and service! Greek life encourages involvement in activities on campus and in the Claremore area.

Going Greek means your college career will involve more than textbooks, classrooms, athletics, and social functions.
