Greek Life

The fraternities and sororities are an established tradition at UGA, dating back more than 150 years. There are 62 national Greek-letter men's and women's groups, making up 26% of the undergraduate student population. The self-governing, self-supporting bodies of the fraternities and sororities are the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, the Multicultural Greek Council and the Panhellenic Council. These groups coordinate events, provide educational programs, establish community-wide regulations and implement policies for their member organizations. 




Center for Leadership and Service

The Center for Leadership and Service empowers students to intentionally engage in leadership learning and practice active citizenship.

Last year, more than 12,500 students volunteered 228,000 hours of community service. The Center is at the heart of these efforts and provides students with opportunities including IMPACT Service Breaks, Leadershape, Volunteer UGA and more. 


Tate Student Center

Fondly referred to as the "living room" of campus, the Tate Student Center plays host to more than 2 million visits per year and serves as the central hub of student life at UGA.

Tate provides a safe and welcoming space for students and is home to many programs offered through the Office of the Dean of Students.




Recreational Sports

Fun. Fitness. Learning. Leadership. UGA Recreational Sports makes all of this possible. Students who pay activity fees are automatically a member of the Ramsey Student Center. Students can drop in to shoot hoops, play racquetball, take a fitness class, climb on the indoor wall, lift weights or run around the indoor track. The Ramsey Center even has an Olympic-sized swimming pool for students to swim laps in. Students can also represent UGA by participating in 9 men's varsity sports, 12 women's varsity sports, 22 intramural sports and 45 club sports.
