About the Celebration

Wearing your letters proudly on campus; performing in a Homecoming Step Show or Greek Week Skit; playing fraternity intramurals; singing during sorority recruitment or a Greek Sing. As you look back at your times on campus, we are sure some of the best memories you have from Maryland are because of your involvement in your fraternity or sorority.

Fraternity and sorority life is a cherished part of the history and tradition of the University of Maryland. As we celebrate 100 years of brotherhood and sisterhood, leadership, service and scholarship, we ask that you join us in honoring the many years fraternities and sororities have spent making men better men and women better women. You can find a full schedule of Centennial Events below, and be sure to check out the Greek Centennial article that appears in Terp Magazine at umd.edu/greek_life!

From The Devastation of Fire –
A New Vision for Community

the Past

With the loss of the housing barracks in 1912 due to the Great Fire, the seeds of a new kind of community and commitment in College Park were planted at the Maryland Agricultural College. The men who were displaced from the barracks, including those who belonged to the earliest fraternities, moved in with families in the community. The bonds of fellowship were greatly enriched by the shared living experience, and in 1913, then University President Dr. H.J. Patterson first envisioned the University providing chapter houses so Greeks could live out their values for the whole community to see. Present to take Dr. Patterson's words to heart was a recent graduate and temporary football coach, Harry Clifton "Curley" Byrd, who would propose to build Fraternity Row when he became President of the University in 1935. From these humble origins, a diverse and thriving fraternity and sorority community would emerge – a community that continues to be a vibrant and critical part of the life of the University of Maryland today.

Help the Legacy Continue

Ensure the

The University of Maryland is committed to the continuation of the ideals, values and experiences of fraternities and sororities for the next 100 years and beyond. In these changing times, the commitment of your time, your talent and your treasure are critically important to making sure chapters will continue to thrive and grow for coming generations. For these young men and women to have the challenges and experiences that you did, your involvement advising your chapter or serving on their housing board, your willingness to share experiences and expertise by sharing at an alumni event or speaking at your chapter, or providing money and resources to help support the programs and services offered to undergraduate members are needed more than ever. Help your undergraduate brothers and sisters see that involvement in a Fraternity or Sorority is not about three or four years of activity, but about a lifetime of commitment and reward. Join us as we build the foundation for the next 100 years today.
