Greek pep rally

Then: For generations, Greek life has been a large part of the vibrant campus, promoting connections, service and school spirit. Whether gathered for a show of Laker pride, like in this picture from the 1962 Ontarian yearbook, or engaging in friendly competition for the annual Greek games, fraternities and sororities have long made their colors and community service an important part of the college's fabric.

Students in fraternities and sororities help with community cleanup

Now: Today, more than 800 SUNY Oswego students belong to the 14 fraternities, 11 sororities and two co-ed fraternities affiliated with SUNY Oswego. Its members remain active in social and community activities, such as last weekend's Clean Sweep in the city of Oswego where many fraternity and sorority members turned out in force to help tidy up the community.
