I never thought I would join a sorority and didn't even know UCCS had Greek life, but it has given me soo many opportunities for growth and meeting girls who share my values. So try something you never considered before and try to let go of pre-conceived judgements!!! It is also way cheaper than I thought Greek life would be, so get involved on campus in some way! College--and life--are what you make it!


Overall Rating
