Greeks play a big role in the UR community. The fraternities and sororities are grouped into three different councils – the Panhellenic Association, the Fraternity Presidents’ Council and the Multicultural Greek Council.

This column has evolved over the past few semesters, and this year all three councils hope to share this space as they work together and with the UR community. This week, the Panhellenic Association would like to welcome the new members of their respective chapters:
