Greek life at Tiffin University has increased in both the number of individuals who pledge and also in the number of organizations. There are currently three fraternities and three sororities, each adding their unique attributes, causes, and events to campus life. Each organization is required to participate in community service as well as host campus events and fundraisers, with many of these events becoming popular traditions at TU.
While the main purpose of Greek Council is to serve as the governing body over all Greek organizations, Greek Council has several other important purposes. Greek Council provides an open forum for all Greek members to discuss issues and help plan campus activities. Greek Council also promotes unity among all Greek members and organizations.
