The Greek Week Steering Committee organized the annual event, which began spring 2007.
UT Tyler implemented Greek life in 2006 and currently recognizes three fraternities and three sororities.
The UT Tyler Office of Greek Life promotes excellence in scholarship, leadership and service while challenging members to live according to the principles outlined by their own organizations.
The office also strives to enhance the collegiate experience of fraternity men and women and their involvement in the Greek community through leadership opportunities, educational programs and other services aimed to develop the students through their journey of becoming UT Tyler and Greek alumni.
