In addition to social sororities and fraternities, we have a multitude of organizations in our Multicultural Greek Council (MGC)! They host study breaks, organize shows and performances, and also partner with other Greek groups or RSOs to put on events. The list of UChicago MGC organizations are as follows:
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity, Inc. La Unidad Latina/Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc. Latinas Promoviendo Communidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. alpha Kappa Delta Phi International Asian Interest Sorority, Inc.
And, in the process, they created a nation of readers.

UChicago Residence Hall Spotlight: Max Palevsky Residential Commons (“Max”)
First-years that are placed in Max stay in suite-style rooms. There are two double rooms, a shared bathroom, and a small entryway. Each house has its own lounge and kitchen. Max is located right next to the Regenstein Library and Bartlett Dining Commons.
You have to have the mindset of a willingness to experiment, a willingness to fail at those times, that if you’re going to be successful and creative, you have to try a lot of things and you have to recognize that not everything is going to work. If your mindset is that failure won’t be tolerated, you’re not going to have an innovative workplace.

South Side Weekly is a alt-weekly newspaper based out of UChicago that distributes throughout the south side of Chicago, and includes quite a few Chicago undergrads among its writers and editors.
