Go Greek

MSU is also home to more than 25 fraternities or sororities. You can become a part of Greek life on campus by rushing a fraternity and sorority at the start of each semester.

Our Greek community is highly involved in Homecoming in the fall and Greek Week in the spring, along with community service and social events throughout the year.

Go Maroon!

Students get in free to almost all home athletic events during the regular season, making it easy for you to cheer on the Bears. Join Maroon Madness, one of the largest student organizations on campus, to be the ultimate Bear booster.

Need some maroon and white? Stop by the Missouri State Bookstore – your BearWear headquarters – to gear up for the big game.
