Support the University of Arizona Greek Community

Our vision

For over one hundred years Greek Life has embodied the values of academic excellence, community involvement, and leadership at the University of Arizona. Membership in a fraternity or sorority provides a powerful student experience and this experience must continue to adapt with the needs of the collegiate environment over time. We are immensely proud of our fraternity and sorority community and all that they have accomplished throughout history, whether it is innovation of campus projects, obtaining campus leadership roles, giving back to their university and Tucson community, or providing the foundation that produces notable leaders around the world.

The University of Arizona is at the forefront of a campus wide strategic initiative that emphasizes innovation, engagement, partnerships, and synergy. Greek Life is an important vehicle for enhancing the student experience through those university goals.

The Greek Life Centennial Campaign will be the stimulus to grow our leadership, as well as the opportunities to offer real world experiences for students. At its core, the Centennial celebration and campaign is a celebration of the outstanding contributions made by individuals to the University of Arizona Greek Community over the last 100 years.


The Park Design

The original park design came from a student design competition in the UA College of Architecture through which two undergraduate members of Sigma Chi submitted the winning proposal.  From their original design the park evolved to include trees, permanent tables chairs, and custom Greek letter benches creating a more warm and inviting space on 1st street. To enter the park visitors will pass through welcoming columns denoting the various donor levels. Brick and paver lined pathways lead into smaller patios complete with wall seating and places to gather with friends, brothers, and sisters.  The lawn and stage will allow chapters and campus friends to host events and bring the community together. Along the eastern edge of the park visitors can stroll through the colonnade walkway and sit on one of the custom benches, and finally visit the timeline wall and learn about the 100 year history of the University of Arizona Greek Community.
