GREEK LIFE @ UM
The University of Montana has a relatively small but expanding Greek system, with 7 fraternities (3 with registered houses) and 4 sororities. All of the Greek houses, besides Delta Gamma, make up a modest Greek row along Gerald Ave, just 4 blocks west of campus. The size of the Greek system here makes it a close and united community. Because of this, most houses attend all of each other's events to support our fellow Greeks, and this leads to even stronger relationships between the houses and large events that you wouldn't expect from the total membership of the UM Greek system. Besides the social side of Greek life, the university also has 2 all-Greek organizations for fraternity men - the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and the Order of Omega. So basically, there's never a shortage of events going on and no possible way you can be bored in a Greek house.
Senior Games are a week-long tribute to the seniors of each house, usually towards the end of the spring semester. Each night of the week, fraternities compete in various events - talent shows, serenades, interviews, and general schmoozing - to win a sorority's senior games and a special function with that sorority. Sigma Nu won 2 out of 4 (Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Gamma) senior games this past school year.
Each sorority hosts 2 formal functions every year, which includes a free dinner - they have a lot of money and tend to drop it big on these events, so that means good food - and a not-so-classy dance at a venue in town, and most have a cash bar for 21+ year-olds.
The Greek system has a big hand in the St. Jude's Up 'Til Dawn Campaign and Relay For Life events on and off campus. Individual houses also host their own philanthropy events, like Kappa Alpha Theta's Kickball For CASA tournament. Sigma Nu happens to be the back-to-back reigning champions of that tournament.
IFC is the governing organization for all fraternities on campus, with 3 representatives from each house. It's responsible for all of the affairs of the men's side of the Greek system. 4 out of IFC's 9 executive officers are Sigma Nu's.
ORDER OF OMEGA
Order of Omega is the Greek honor society. It's a highly-regarded accomplishment to be invited to join it. Sigma Nu has 2 members in it.
