The University of Nevada, Reno, was recently listed by OnlineColleges.com as one of the "10 Colleges with Great Greek Life" in the country.
The University, according to Online Colleges.com, offers a variety of Greek options that promote culture, service and education:
"There is no shortage of Greek options at the University of Nevada, Reno, which is home to 12 fraternities and nine sororities. Some groups, such as the Asian-interest fraternity Lambda Psi Rho, strengthen community within a particular cultural group. Others, such as the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, founded in 1870, promote service and education. All, however, strive to improve academic achievement and build community, and each year, in the All Greek Ball Awards, the school acknowledges chapters and members that excel in various categories. Key awards include the Academic Excellence Award, Excellence in Community Service Award, the Nevada Pride Award, and the Unity Award, among others.
