Can you be Greek and Christian?
The answer is yes! Greek InterVarsity is the place where being Greek and Christian come together. In fact, being in a fraternity or sorority can be one of the best places to grow and be challenged in your faith. NU Greek InterVarsity is part of a national movement of Fraternity and Sorority students present on over 90 campuses across the country. Follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group. Interested in joining Greek life? Check out the Northwestern Fraternity and Sorority Life website.
Greek InterVarsity gathers every Thursday night from 8-9:15pm. We leave judgements at the door, making this a safe place for anyone exploring how faith and greek life intersect. Every week we’ll look at a passage from the Bible and discuss how it relates to us today as Northwestern greeks. And of course there’ll be music, food and plenty of fun!

Our goal is to establish a student-led ministry in every fraternity and sorority on campus. We’re all about bringing Jesus to where people are at and we’ve found that the best way to do this is by leading a regular Bible study in your chapter house or apartment with fellow brothers and sisters. Visit our chapter ministries page to meet our current leaders!
