Greek Life Collection

 Collection
Identifier: EUA097

Abstract

This collection includes documents and information about a variety of fraternities and sororities that are part of the Greek Life system at Elon University. The collection includes information about each Greek organization on the local and/or national levels. Some of the Greek organizations represented in this collection no longer exist. This is not a comprehensive collection of all the Greek organizations on Elon's campus, but simply a collection of materials that have been given to the Archives and Special Collections thus far. Additionally, this collection includes items from the Office of Greek Life at Elon and other general Greek Life information that relates to Elon University. Note: In the fall of 2015, the Office of Greek Life became the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life; however, the name of the collection continues as Greek Life. The collection begins with General Information and then is arranged alphabetically by name of organization. The earliest items in the collection date back to 1921. For a more detailed list of what is included in the collection, please see the section below titled "Detailed Description of the Collection."
