Is Greek Life active at Transylvania University?
Transylvania University
Roughly 45-50% of our students are involved in Greek life. But you don't have to be Greek to be active on campus. We have a delayed rush, meaning you get a chance to interact with all students before you decide if you want to join a Greek organization or not.
